In brief: See a dentist

See a dentist who can determine the cause of your tooth pain and then suggest the proper treatment.
Whether or not you have a filling in the tooth the possible causes of pain are many.

In brief: Pain

Fillings have life spans, they don't last forever. There can be many reasons for your toothache, most of which are not related to whether or not you have a filling in a tooth.
Please see your Dentist for an examination to determine the cause of the pain, and the appropriate treatment plan.
