Filling cavities should not per se be an issue in a person with a problem with the mitral valve of the heart. The problem with persons with mitral valve disease and dental care is more related to procedures like pulling a tooth or invading the gum line. You don't tell us what kind of problem you have with your mitral valve.
I doubt that your burning feeling in the throat or your tasting the stuff in the mouth should be of concern.
Please note that I am unable to diagnose medical conditions online.
