Decay or normal side effect? (PICTURE)

Hello everyone. (Just as a “run through”, I have gum disease and bone loss 😅).

Recently (less than 2 weeks ago) I had some cavities filled. My dentist told me they were small and not to worry about them....as if that’s possible haha

Well recently I examined my mouth, and have come to find both of my top, back molars are graying around their composite filling.

My question is, is this normal? As in, could it be because the teeth were filled recently?

Or is it decay, infection, etc. and I should go back to my dentist? (The filled cavities were very sensitive at first, but this has dissipated as time has gone on).

Thank you very much for any input!!37A4543A-BF52-4FE8-97D4-A302C1D6008C.jpeg

It's not possible to tell much from a photo, if you're worried, go back to your dentist and ask them to check.
