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.

When is a dental crown needed?
Dental crowns are most commonly used as the final restoration following a root canal or dental implant procedure. Crowns restore the shape, function, and appearance of a tooth that’s been damaged or lost due to disease, decay, or injury.
After a root canal when the decayed portion of the tooth has been removed, the crown acts as a “cap.” It covers and protects the remaining healthy tooth structure, keeping it healthy for as long as possible.
When an implant is used to replace a missing tooth, a crown takes the place of the entire missing tooth. It attaches securely to the implant and will look/feel just like a real tooth.
In some cases, crowns may also be used to create attachment points for a bridge to replace one or more missing teeth.
Let’s talk about your options — get a free second opinion!
When crafting a crown, we begin by taking an impression of your tooth that’s used to make the crown itself. It takes about 2 weeks and we’ll provide you with a temporary crown to wear in the meantime.
Before you have a crown made, we’ll talk about the different materials and the benefits of each. Some composite porcelain-like materials are designed to match the exact shade of your natural teeth. Other materials like gold are known for their durability but don’t have that natural appearance.
Dr. Jensen will answer your questions and help you make the choice that’s best for you. Schedule your appointment at our Anchorage, AK office to get a free second opinion.
How long will my crown last?
With proper at-home care and regular cleanings and exams, you can expect your crown to last 15 years or more. Other factors, including your health, can affect the durability of your crown.
Is a crown better than a filling?
When a tooth is badly damaged or decayed, a crown offers additional protection a filling can’t. Large fillings also don’t provide the stability or durability of a carefully-crafted crown.
Is gold the best material for a crown?
There are many materials available for crowns, including gold and porcelain. Dr. Jensen will help you select the best material for your dental crown.
How do I prevent gum disease near my crown?
Brush and floss daily, paying particular attention to the gum line around the crown. Keep up with your exams to assess your gum disease risk and track changes to your health.

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!!
