I felt amazed that a cotton placed inside my molar & had dental filling for 10years is still white inside my tooth after being re-opened. Why is it?
Yes, but not always: Yes, depending on how much tooth structure is missing.

But be aware that even if you place a filling, there might still be a chance that it may fracture and you may need a crown. If finances allows you to get a crown then that would be ideal choice. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Will dental filling be done in the same tooth (after first one comes out remaining in place for two years)?

If substantial decay, fracture, nerve exposure, etc, probably not. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes and no: I'm not worried that you swallowed it...It'll pass. What concerns me is why it fell out.
