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.

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.

What’s better, an implant, bridge, or dentures?

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Dr. Jensen will examine your teeth and gums, and explain your options. Together you’ll create the best treatment plan for you.

How long will a dental bridge last?

We expect most bridges to last from 5-15 years or even longer. However, this takes work on your part, including proper at-home hygiene and regular exams and checkups.

I have a bridge and it feels loose. Do I need a new one?

Not always. Depending on the age and condition of the bridge and surrounding teeth, it may be possible to bond the bridge back into place.

My gums are sore near my bridge. What do I do?

It’s a good idea to talk to your dentist. Gum disease is common near bridges and is something we keep an eye out for in our patients at Chugach Dental.

We accept most dental insurances!

We are in-network with Premera Blue Cross, Delta Dental, Moda, Aetna, Cigna, United Concordia, MetLife, TRICARE, and more. We’ll file paperwork, explain what’s covered, and help you maximize your insurance benefits.

Our office does not accept Medicaid.

Have a question about how much your dental bridge will cost with dental insurance? Call our Anchorage dentist office today at (907) 868-3000.

No insurance? No problem.

With financing options like CareCredit or our Healthy Smile Club (starting at $45 a month), there are ways to pay for your bridge even if you don’t have dental insurance. Ask our friendly front office staff for more information about payment options.

Shani Rinner

I am a new patient at Chugach Dental. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Jensen cleaned my teeth himself (never had a dentist only hygienist do that before). He was very gentle and gave me options. My follow up visit was for a filling (😩) which I was not looking forward to. Dr. Jensen continually checked on me throughout the procedure and I am feeling great the following day. Thank you!

All the staff were incredible. The COVID safety procedures made me feel very comfortable. Adam really listened to me to understand my concerns and provided helpful information for all my questions. He was also great working with my toddler. I was happy to that we talked through different options and I didn’t feel pressured to pick anything that didn’t seem right to me. I also felt respected and supported in my choices.

I found Dr. Jensen when I was having a dental emergency, and they were able to fit me in within 18 hours of calling. Dr Jensen and his staff are super friendly and helpful. As someone who is super nervous at the dentist, they made the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. They are up front with costs and provide estimates for services before they are provided, even same day. I would highly recommend Dr. Jensen and his team!

Jeffrey Cincoski

I hadn’t been to the dentist in an embarrassingly long time. Dr. Adam and the staff provided care in a supportive way that made me feel comfortable. Their attention extended beyond just my teeth, and it was nice to be treated with such understanding. I liked that they had options for squeamish folks and could do so many different services; I feel like its a good one-stop option. Also, the team here seemed good-natured (fun and cohesive) and genuinely enjoyed helping me out. It will be way easier to come back to Chugach. Thanks guys!

Najeeby Quinn

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!!
