People who have previously broken teeth or fillings may be more likely to break them in the future. Other factors that can increase the risk of cracked or broken fillings are:

  • The presence of older and larger fillings.
  • People who grind their teeth or have strong chewing muscles.
  • People who have uneven or unbalanced bites.
  • People who have destructive habits, such as chewing ice or opening things with their teeth.
