In brief: Can be simple

If you are talking about a tooth with anew filling and your bite is off a little then this is a simple, pain free thing to do.
The dentist would just touch the new filling. If you are talking about a complete mouth then this would require a complete evaluation of your teeth and bite using models of your teeth to duplicate your teeth and bite so the dentist can study your teeth first.

In brief: Bite adjustment

New fillings occasionally will feel "high.
" the dentist checks the bite, but sometimes the anesthetic prevents us from knowing if everything is adjusted properly. The dentist can easily adjust it later by just shaving the filling down slightly.
