Fillings during pregnancy

Hi,

I am 34 weeks pregnant. A part of my filling from one of my bottom premolars has fell off. I now cannot chew on that side of my mouth and fear that that part is getting rotten.I often have a weird taste in mouth. Is it dangerous to have the cavity filled during pregnancy?
