Hi. I have a single tooth prosthetic porcelain bridge with a single metal hinge. The metal has snapped at the join, leaving the bulk of the hinge embedded in the next tooth, and the prosthetic completely detached. Is this likely to be serviceable/repairable, or would a whole new bridge be needed? Thanks in advance.

This requires a dentist to look at it to assess the situation

Best wishes
