Hi fiona,

if your doctor is sure about the treatment given, he should give you the permanent filling only.
temporary filling as the name suggest is only for short time.
if it get dislodged again you will get the infection in that tooth.
if you need any further treatment in the same tooth, we can remove that permanent filling also.
so i suggest take safe and sound treatment by getting the permanent filling only.

Thanks.
