The new technology of dentistry lets the filling set quickly. However, it's best to eat slow and on the other side of your mouth just to be sure. If in doubt always ask your dentist any questions you may have. You can even phone them once home.

Its basically a large filling.

How will the dentist treat a tooth with a small hole in the front of it?

The whole is most likely from a cavity so they will put a filling in it. Most likely the dentist will get you numb. When you are numb they will drill out any decay and then shape the whole so it will hold a filling properly. If it is a front tooth, you will get a tooth colored filling. If it is a back tooth, you could get a silver filling or a tooth colored filling. That depends on your insurance, the docotor and you. If you have more questions, the dentist should answer any of them before beginning the work.
