Our practice is proud of the dentistry that we provide for you and your family. Our goal is to not just correct any dental problems you may have, but to show you how to prevent dental disease in the future, to save you time and unnecessary expense. The long term success of the dental treatments we provide depends upon your continuing quality home care of your teeth and gums, regular professional dental exams, cleanings, x-rays and fluoride treatments. The products recommended by us for you, and the frequency of those professional recare visits depends on your individual condition. The recare visits may be every 3, 4 or 6 months apart, depending on your specific level of oral health. With that in mind, we offer the following limited dental warranties:
Silver and Tooth-Colored Fillings:
If a dental filling is the recommended treatment of choice and it fails or breaks under normal use, we will replace or repair it for a period of 1 year after initial placement. *If the Doctor’s recommended treatment is a crown and you elect to do a short term treatment such as a large filling, this warranty is null and void.
Crowns, Bridges, Inlays, Onlays, and Veneers:
We will warranty these most comprehensive procedures for a full 5 years. We will replace or repair them at no charge during this five year period if they break, crack or chip with normal use. This does not include accidents that could break normal, healthy teeth.
Dentures and Partial Dentures:
We will warranty dentures and partials for a period of 1 year if a tooth chips or breaks, or a flange breaks, under normal use. This warranty does not cover accidents such as dropping your denture. Full upper and lower denture patients must be seen once every 12 months for a recare exam to evaluate the health of your oral soft tissues and of your dentures.*patients with some of their own natural teeth must be seen at the recommended recare appointments or this warranty is null and void.
Night Guards/Bite Splints:
These appliances are designed to wear out. The typical lifespan of this sort of appliance is three (3) to five (5) years. If your appliance breaks under routine use within 12 months of use we will replace it at no additional charge.
To keep this warranty valid, you must:
Keep your regularly scheduled appointments. Maintain your account in good standing. Have all recommended dental treatment(s) including X rays as prescribed, the treatment of jaw-occlusal dysfunction and use of night guards if recommended. This warranty DOES NOT include anything not mentioned above. This warranty does not cover the need to replace or repair dentistry due to cavities, gum disease, nerve damage within the tooth, eating foods we ask you to avoid, accidents that cause injury to the head and face, and the improper use of teeth as tools (nail biting or tearing open packages).
