If you found a dentist who knocks you completely out, which some do and some even use the laughing gas now, then id go for them...but Im STILL too chicken to even do that!

They'll fill it like any other cavity. Since it's not on the biting surface, they'll do a composite filling to make it match the enamel. I don't suggest OTC filling products. Go into the dentist and have it filled. If you can see it yourself, it won't be difficult to treat. Just don't wait around; make an appointment tomorrow!
I just meant temporary, not as a replacement.

it was no big deal. They just drilled on the side of the tooth and filled it.
Did they have to excise any gum tissue to get to your cavity?

So, my advice is to not let it go...get it taken care quickly.
