Hi,

Hope You can umderstand my English.

Twice, this summer,
the composite filling dropped (from right side upper tooth)
within 20 hours.

First time it dropped after several hours when I ate quite ordinary biscuits since filling it in outdoors in the summer.

Second time was in september and it had been raining day before.
The grass was still wet when the dentist came.

Wonder if moist and weather has any role to hinder or help
filling to attach to tooth?

He did not use
portable drill because he had no any.

The weather has no effect on your teeth and a filling will not fall out because it's wet outside but because it is not bonded properly. A composite filling requires the correct equipment including a special light to make the filling materials bond to the tooth. The tooth also needs to be prepared correctly for the filling to be strong. It's also possible that the tooth needs different treatment because it may be that a filling of this type is not suitable as a restoration. See another dentist for an opinion.
