Only the very best for your smile!
Lost teeth present a number of obstacles. You may find it difficult to chew and speak naturally or feel self-conscious about your appearance.
Fortunately, there are many options for restoring missing or damaged teeth. If you’re missing a single tooth, an implant may be your best choice. If you’re missing all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw, dentures might be right for you.
However, for times when one or more adjacent teeth are missing and you have other healthy teeth next to the space, you might be interested in learning about dental bridges.
Have questions about what to do about your missing teeth? Not sure if you need dentures, an implant, or a bridge? Get a second opinion at Chugach Dental. Call (907) 868-3000 to schedule a dental bridge consultation.
Chugach Dental is staying on top of modern dental technology to bring you the best care possible.
We invested in a new digital intraoral scanner displays a 3-D rendering of a patient's teeth on a screen immediately after the scan is complete, providing a more impactful dental experience and a better understanding of the condition of their teeth and the recommended treatment plan.
The scanner is more comfortable than traditional approaches. It's quicker, convenient, and creates more accurate scans to get more precise impressions.

What is a dental bridge?
As the name suggests, a dental bridge “bridges” the gap left behind when teeth are lost. Unlike implants that are placed securely into the jawbone itself, dental bridges use neighboring teeth for stability and support.
A dental bridge can be used to:
- Close the gap left behind when teeth are lost
- Help you to eat and speak naturally
- Give you back the ability to smile with confidence
- Keep your remaining teeth from “drifting” and becoming misaligned
- Help maintain an even bite and prevent jaw pain
How do bridges work?
While there are several types of dental bridges, all start by preparing the healthy teeth on either side of the gap. These teeth may need a crown or other restoration to provide a secure attachment point for the dental bridge.
At Chugach Dental, we work closely with a local dental lab that creates incredibly natural crowns and dental bridges. The end result looks, feels, and functions just like real teeth!
With proper care, your bridge and crowns can last for years — if not decades. After your bridge is complete, Dr. Adam Jensen will talk to you about how to care for it and recommend a regular schedule of dental cleanings and exams.

Chugach Dental has taken my anxiety out of that dreaded dental visit. Finally! I went in as a new patient for a cleaning and my hygienist was both enjoyable and thorough. Dr.Jensen took his time after my cleaning to discuss the health of my teeth and gums, changes I should make to my routine and future dental work that was only deemed necessary. I appreciate a conservative dentist because my dental insurance only covers my cleanings. Dr. Jensen is young and healthy as a health care provider should be. The office is also really clean and modern, no tacky music or outdated artwork. My appointment was easy to book and I even look forward to going back and having him fix a badly chipped tooth. 5 stars for services and the staff I interacted with. Highly recommended!

Dr. Jensen is great. I was nervous to get an issue addressed. He took care of it quickly and the procedure was surprisingly pain free. I continue to see Dr. Jensen for his professionalism and his approach to dentistry that provides what is essential to his patients at a great price.

Dr. Jensen is such a kind dentist, he’s warm and welcoming and he truly cares about his patients. His staff goes above and beyond to make my family feel comfortable. He has also been really good with my 2 year old son, making him feel comfortable and getting him used to the dentist chair since he was 1. He loves going to see Dr. Jensen! The office is modern and you even have a nice view of the mountains while you’re getting your teeth cleaned! Highly recommend Chugach Dental!!
