Yes, definitely you should go for restoration of all teeth if you don't have pain in them. As the teeth are pre molars so I would advice you to go for composite filling or glass ionomer cement because it would be visible while you open your mouth or laugh. Amalgam contains mercury so it is definitely not good for your health.

Amalgam filling is outdated nowadays becoz of its health hazards, go for composite fillings which cosmetically look good and does not have health hazards also.

Yes you should go for restoration as early as possible. N its better to go for composite restoration as it will match your tooth colour. Amalgam has mercury hazards associated wid it.
