Post Higher tooth than others. Bite issue.

I had braces put on because one of my teeth on the lower row was stick up higher than the other teeth and when I close me mouth it rubs againsts the upper teeth. And I feel pressure on that one lower tooth everytime my mouth is closed. Now that my braces are off I noticed the tooth is still higher up than all my other teeth. The doctor didn't even notice it or say anything about it. And I mentioned it to the assistant and she said for me to get the doctor to file the tooth down. I don't think my tooth can be filed down that much to be even with the rest of my teeth. The problem is not really how it looks but how every time I close my mouth there will be pressure on that tooth from the upper teeth. I've already had that tooth repaired once because I managed to smash down on it which produced a small fracture.

Does anybody else have this problem? Does anybody know what I should do about it?
