what is your legal question?
Your bridge will eventually fall out due to the dentist's shoddy workmanship?
how long ago did the bridge fall out?
Where someone performs substandard dental work, they are ordinarily responsible for the cost of curing the defect, plus any pain and suffering. The problem with these cases is usually proving that the work was substandard; you almost always need a dental expert to evaluate the work and render a professional opinion that the first dentist failed to perform their work at the standard for the industry. If you can get an expert on your side, you can ordinarily hold the first dentist accountable in court. Best of luck.
