I can’t comfortably keep my teeth touching because of my bite and fillings?

I just had my fillings done and it was really uncomfortable. My teeth weren’t touching on the opposite side and I couldn’t keep my mouth closed. So I got it fixed, but it’s still uncomfortable. When i keep my teeth touching, my bite just feels really off and my jaw gets sore. The dentist told me she doesn’t want to shave off any more filling. So now I constantly have my jaw relaxed. Is this a bad thing? I’m going to get fillings on the other side done in a few weeks and I’m hoping that might even things out. But my jaw and bite are already misaligned and I feel like the fillings are making them so much worse. Just not sure what to do
