It shouldn't. The neighboring teeth that support the bridge are crowned, this supplies the extra strength for the teeth to support the bridge. You would maintain the area as you would for a normal crown. These do require extra cleaning as they tend to trap a lot of additional plaque leading towards bleeding. As long as you are meticulous about keeping it clean to keep the gums healthy and preventing recurring decay you should be fine.
