high filling but dentist refuses to grind down



Former Member
so i got a filling for my upper tooth (#3 i think)
and it did not feel comfortable at all. everytime i bite, i'm just hitting the filling, which feels very weird and annoying.
so the dentist grinds it down a little, puts it back in, makes me do the bite test and says it's fine.
even though it feels like i have a rock in mouth. i said to her it still feels way too high and she says no, it's fine because the bite test shows it's fine and you'll get used to it.
so my question is, is my dentist correct, should i just wait and get used to it?
usually if it feels high it is high
