Unless there's a problem with your rabbit's teeth you shouldn't have to

If there is a problem (like the small spurs that sometimes grow on a bunny's
tooth when it's not being ground down during regular eating--symptoms vary from
drooling to not eating, etc.) the vet should do the filing.

Most bunnies have well-aligned teeth that wear down on their own. If
your rabbit's teeth are mis-aligned and do not wear down properly, let
the vet file or trim them. If not done correctly, you can loosen or
crack the teeth.      -Rhonda

Just make sure your rabbit has something to chew on and you shouldn't
have to worry about it. Mine likes the pieces of juniper root he has in
his hutch, and pecan and oak planings when he's with me in the
workshop.

If the rabbit's teeth are aligned properly, chewing will wear them down
normally. If they are mis-aligned (as are many or most cases of
over-grown teeth), then no amount of chewing will help.   -Rhonda
