Hello there,

If there is adequate remaining tooth structure on the broken tooth it can be reshaped (if the dentist thinks it necessary) and the new bridge can be fabricated. This is a judgement call. If you trust your dentist, I would proceed. You can also get a second opinion from another dentist if you are unsure.

Please let me know if you need additional information to answer your question. If not I'd appreciate a positive rating for my effort.
