Hello, I've just had a porcelain, metal fused Bridge fitted today, I'm really not happy with it.. it has a huge gap at the top (margin) I can actually breathe through it. I can't talk properly & when I talk the saliva just comes over the top of it. . It also feels like it moves when i eat/talk as it doesn't touch the gum. Please give me your opinions as to if this has been fitted right.

Usually I would first try in the bridge without cementing it, in order to see if there are any gaps. If there were indeed gaps, you can add pink porcelain onto the bridge, in order to cover up these "gaps". Remember, when a tooth is extracted, there will be some bone loss in that area. Sometimes for up until a year after the extraction. As the bone resorbs, the soft tissue goes with it, so there is a chance that the gaps that you see, could enlarge.
I would go back to the dentist to voice your concerns.
