Post Composit Filling Discolorin

About a month ago, I had a composite filling put in where the dentist drilled through a crown to re-do a root canal. What would cause it to discolor?

Is the filling gray now? Composite fillings are often transluscent, and the dark metal from the inside of the crown may be showing through. My dentist adds something to make the filling more opaque and less noticable in those situations.
