Hello. 1. It could be post filling sensitivity. Sometimes it may occur. You probably went for a light cure tooth coloured composite filling. Such fillings are very sensitive in the protocols to be followed while filling. A refilling with more precision could help. Or you could go for a GIC filling. 2. If a filling is too deep it is not always necessary to go for a root canal. If the nerve/pulp of the tooth is not infected. A pulp capping can be done and the response of the pulp can be monitored over time . Because there are chances it may heal. 3. If pulp response is exaggerated over really long periods of time , then you will probably need of root canal. 4. The sensitivity could also be due to a nearby tooth, and the pain is referred making you feel it's in the tooth you got filled. Warm regards. Dr. Runit Nangalia.

See there can be two things one which almost all of my fellow dentists have already suggested that the decay might be too deep and need RCT intervention but secondly the filling can be faulty also which might happen due to breech in isolation that means your tooth might have got wet during the fill leading to its failure..
Next Steps
Don't worry go and get a X RAY done,  either post it here or show it to the nearby dentist and take appropriate action accordingly i.e. Either a refilling or a RCT
Health Tips
Meanwhile if it's just a sensitivity related issue try Colgate's PAIN OUT on that tooth
