Cold causes bridge pain

Hi Doc,
Need some help, i have a 6 unit bridge where my front teeth should be, for it to be afixed to my teeth the dentist drilled into 2 teeth, secured it with metal and his applied filling to top it all off. the bridge also has a metal plate behind the 4 front teeth (obviously for added strength) the problem i am having is with the very cold weather, getting the cold air in my mouth all this metal is giving me jaw and tooth ache. if i drink a warm drink hte metal heats up and pain goes away. is there anything i can do (short of pain killers) like a topical cream or something to stop the pain

nothing topical will solve the problem- see a dentist- there is probably a marginal discerepency around the bridge
