Hello,Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.So you have a PFM bridge, that is Porcelain Fused to Metal.The metal layer is the inner layer, called the coping. That can be seen when the porcelain chips off. It is most commonly a nickel-chromium or a cobalt-chromium alloy.No, that is not a concern at all to the CNS, don't worry.However please visit your dentist as soon as you can so that the bridge can be repaired.Hope this answers your question. Please leave a positive rating if my answer my answer has helped you.I do not get credit for it otherwise!Regards, *****
