Your dentist will make recommendations to minimize your risk of a cracked filling. Here are some things that may be recommended:

  • Replace older fillings before they break.
  • Place a dental cap or “crown” over very large fillings to protect them.
  • Have your bite adjusted if it is unbalanced.
  • Wear a night-time grinding appliance.
  • Do not chew ice or use your teeth to open things.
