Found small thin piece of white filling after getting multiple cavity fillings today

Was just sitting on the computer when I felt a small definitely not food thing in my mouth. Spat it out and it was a thin narrow strand of white. Here's a picture. I got them done I think in-between some molars. I'm kind of thinking it's leftover from when they were trimming/polishing the filling earlier today. Should I be concerned my filling came out already? Thanks.

Yes most likely. No I don't think so :)
 
@Gordon So it's fine? Phew thank you for your response. I'd hate to have to go back in again so soon after I finally regained feeling in my face.
 
Yes, I'm sure it's fine.
