Kindly use a sensitivity paste apply over affected portion for three to five minutes the sensitivity will subside. In a weeks time if it still persists then get an xray done if required get the bridge removed and get root canal treatment done in the affected tooth.
If the bridge is old and leaking, it probably needs to be changed. Visit the dentist and he will take x ray and check the bridge margins and fitting and will advice you whether the bridge needs to be changed.
