Questions Related to Dic

I got my four Molars DIC filling done from a local dentist. She has called me again for a recheck up after ten days. She suggested that as I had cavities, she did DIC filling this time, but after ten days she will remove this and do a Composite filling instead. It will not cause any pain or problem. My question is, do I really need to go for this? Is it really required as filling is already done? Will it be having any complications in future?
