Fixing FillingsIf you have an uneven filling, you may notice that when you bite down, your bite is uneven. You may find that you can't bite down the way that you have bitten down in the past. You may also notice that one side of your mouth is hurting as you bite down. Some people experience pain in the tooth, and others have frequent headaches.
