What does a shadow mean on bridge that was xrayed right after bridge cemented in?  ?

I had dental bridge cemented in 4 months ago & bite wing xrays taken. Today at dental cleaning dentist announced she did not like my bridge as she sees shadow on X-ray taken 4 months ago. Then examining another X-ray bite wing says it does not look too bad & bridge does not need to come off.  What would this shadow mean?  Also, noted 6.5 gum pocket on tooth behind bridge which hygienist said was not related to new bridge. All other pockets were 3-4.  Told to floss. Could this have been from bridge placement?
