The main problem with your bridge as I see it from the photos is it doesn't look like the other side of your mouth, so it appears much more bulky. The only real way to fix it is to make a different one. If you were to do that, make sure that the provisional (temporary) bridge looks and feels the way you want before proceeding with the permanent. The permanent bridge can then be a copy of the provisional bridge.
Bridge bulky and pain
Pain is always sign of something that may need fixing. Sometimes dentists drill too much and causes sensitivity, maybe you needed a root canal before the crown. Hard to determine with just the picture. I recommend having a second option by another dentist to check everything.
From the photo it appears that the bridge is over contoured. This could be due to not enough tooth structure is removed, therefore the bridge becomes over contoured. If the porcelain can not be adjusted the best option is to remake the bridge.
