Even if you’ve always had a correct bite, it’s still possible to develop an uneven bite after a filling. An uneven bite is described as a bite that’s obviously misaligned in some way.

Diagnosing an Uneven Bite After a Cavity Filling
When checking for a correct bite after a filling, simply close your teeth together and squeeze. This shouldn’t cause any pain or discomfort. You should also feel all of your teeth coming together at once. Try grinding your teeth together in various directions. You shouldn’t feel any discomfort here either.
Your dentist performs this test in the office after he fills a cavity, but the composites used to create the filling can sometimes shift and become misplaced slightly. When this occurs, you can call your dentist and arrange a visit with a Sunday dentist if necessary.
