Nail repair

I find that when my nails get longer - particularly the thumbs - I often get a horizontal tear down in the nail bed, where the nail starts to break away, and which means that eventually I'll have to cut that nail really short. I keep my nails fairly oval in shape, a sort of oval-ed off square if you know what I mean, so I'm doing my best not to weaken the sides of the nails by filing down too low.
Any tips on fixing a tear in the nail? It's so frustrating having to cut one right *off* to nothing, and still have an unsightly tear in the nail. I don't wear them extremely long.
