In most cases a heart murmur is not a serious problem. Most often it's caused by mvp(mitral valve prolapse), which is very common. If this is the case you'll need to be pre-medicated with antibiotics before having dental work done. You'll need to have an echocardiogram done to confirm what is causing the murmur. It's a very simple, painless test. I do many of them every day. Check with your dr.
