Filling on back tooth still hurts

I had cavity filled over a month ago (bottom back tooth).  It still hurts and cannot eat on that side.  I had a root canal done to the tooth in front (which he also said it doesn't need a root canal and it still hurt) and he said that particular tooth that hurts does not need a root canal and placed additional white stuff on it. Not sure if he's banking in on me or avoiding me having another root canal when I don't need one?

I don't know if you need a root canal or not but something must be done to allow you to eat on that side.If you get no satisfaction I would  suggest another opinion.
