The dentist may have left the filling intentionally low to take the tooth out of occlusion. This is usually done to protect the tooth if the tooth is in a high stress area and tends to fracture, feel sore often, or other dental issues.

Go back to your dentist and have the dentist take a look. Maybe the dentist did not pack the tooth enough with enough filling material and/or maybe it was placed low intentionally. If it was just an error, the dentist can add more filling material.

Yes I would go back.. You don't want your jaw misligned or you can get t.m.j. Not a good thing at all. T.M. J.

Re: How to get my bite back it is off

yes i am having similar problems ,my old dentist put so many big crowns in my mouth (which is only a small mouth) that i have similar problems now !!

i do also grind my teeth now too due to it ,apparantly my new dentist told me because of my crowns ,there isnt anything i can do about my teeth being out of line
well i suppose there is by taking them all off and re-doing them ,but i cant afford that to be done paid out enough as it is

Re: How to get my bite back it is off

My teeth are also out of alignment. I went to an orthodontist and he said that may be true but he's more concerned with getting my jaw bite correct rather than matching up my teeth. I don't understand it entirely but in my situation he says that my front teeth are hitting first when I bite/chew and he made me a splint to assist in moving my bite to where it should be. I'm not sure what he does about the teeth not coming together correctly. Anyways, you could see a specialist for an evaluation about your bite.
