Bridges have been used for hundreds of years to move people and things across water and ravines. Several versions have been created and what started as simply as a fallen tree across a stream has become multi story metal giants helping cars cross rivers and roads. Bridge puns use the word to mean many other things as well, from dental work to cooperation.

A bridge is built to cross over a body of water, often a river or a stream, or a ravine and similar dips in ground. They allow people to move freely from one place to another and have helped to keep towns, cities, and countries together and able to move about. There are several different types of bridges, and each serves its own purpose.
One liner bridge puns may address what a bridge does, as the word works both as a verb as well as a noun, and this makes it easily used in clean bridge puns.
A dental bridge is a dental appliance that holds one or more crowns or fake teeth and attaches to the tooth on each side of the gap they are filling. A short bridge pun, they are named after the way that they match the functions of a bridge by covering the gap. This one liner bridge pun is one of the most common, and it is used often, with many people needing a bridge to cover the gap where a tooth or teeth are missing.
When a bridge is not suitable there are other alternatives, and each have their own dental pun to go with them. Implants and dentures are both options for filling a gap, and while not technically a bridge, they do bridge the gap.
Bridges As A Verb
While the word bridge most often conquers the image of a wooden or steel structure that is built across a lower space, either a dip in the ground or a body of water, it is also used as a verb. In this definition it means to create or be the connection between two sides of something. Corny bridge puns reference helping to bring things back together, to connect things that have become disconnected or lost, and creating a connection between two areas of land that have become disconnected.
Silly bridge puns about bringing things together and creating a path from one space to another are common. They use the same principal as creating a connection, and this has moved from being only about pieces of land or buildings, of bridging the gap physically, to being used in regards to people and bringing them together.
Bridge Between People
To create a bridge between people is to find a common ground that each enjoy, a common purpose, or to be the common friend that they both respect. This is used in regards to family, where the parents or a sibling keep the family together, or where a couple creates the bridge between their families. Short bridge puns are used in these references often, and though they are not the funniest bridge puns, they are not intended to be.
While many puns are made to be funny and to encourage people to laugh and share joy, share jokes
, and find common ground, others are to make things easier to understand or to explain things in common and familiar terms. These are functional and as common as ones that are made in jest, but are tools for understanding and explanation. A pun that carries a comparison, that switches words for one that sound similar, or that use alternate definitions are all ways to improve communication, expand vocabulary, and create deeper understanding between people.
Many puns, even funny bridge puns, have a purpose or more than one purpose. They are used for laughter, for bonding with others, for sharing information, and for showing knowledge. Puns are a part of regular communication and have a place in the way that society speaks to each other and communicate. They help to bring people together in a way that deeper conversations or complicated conversations may not.
