Why has the dentist left blue marks on my teeth?

I've just had 3 white enamel fillings in the bottom-left corner of my mouth. Looking in the mirror, I now have a small bluish-gray mark at the nearest 'peak' of each molar. Should I be worried?

The only reference to 'blue marks' I can find online is here
, where it's stated that blue marks can be put on teeth (and then removed!) in order to file down the high points of newly fitted crowns.
But I don't have any crowns, and I don't know what to make of these blemishes, given that I paid (considerably) more to get white enamel instead of metal fillings.
What are these marks? Did my dentist not finish the job properly? Should I be worried?
