Pull and fill tooth: Dentist can pull a tooth and fill the tooth depends upon available time. He may fill the tooth first and then pull the tooth . Your dentist decides.

It is possible: The restoration would most likely be done first, and then the extraction, since the bleeding from the extraction would interfere with placing the restoration. Discuss this with your dentist before making the appointment.

Certainly: We do that all the time. Most patients prefer to limit the total number of visits required. Just make sure to request this prior to your visit so that the dentist has sufficient time for both procedures. We like to satisfy all our patient's needs but in the end it will be up to your own dentist to make that decision.
