    Commonly, a broken filling allows new decay to start, so you might need the old filing removed, additional drilling, and a larger new filling.

    But you've waited two years, and we can't know what other damage might be happening to cause that pain you have on biting. You really shouldn't wait any longer.

    Possibly a crown, composite or cast noble metal crown. It all depends if there is enough "tooth structure" remaining to support a crown.
