Limited Warranty 

 

In our office, we strive for technical perfection and customer satisfaction, which is why we are happy to provide you this warranty, something few other offices offer. With the information and technology we have available today, we have the ability to prevent oral disease.Instead of going to the dentist every few years for costly “drill and fill” treatment, you can actively participate in disease prevention. If you spend 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening brushing, flossing and doing other dentist-recommended treatments, let your dentist professionally clean your teeth, check for oral cancer, check for cavities, apply fluoride treatment, or apply sealants, you can prevent virtually all disease. This is why our warranties become null and void if we do not see you for your regular six-month check-ups.

 

Crown and Bridge Warranty

1. For a period of five years from the date of service, we will refund the cost of a crown or bridge due to breakage, misfit, or decay.*

 

2. This warranty is null and void if the patient does not maintain his/her six-month continuing care check-up and cleaning appointments.

 

*Gold and porcelain crowns are the same for practically all cases except that porcelain can chip. Approximately one out of every 100 porcelain crowns chip and need replacement. Gold crowns cannot chip. If your porcelain crown chips in the first five years, we will replace or repair it for free. However, if it chips after the five-year period, you will be charged the regular fee for a new crown. This should be taken into consideration when choosing between porcelain or gold.

 

Composite Filling Warranty

1. When a tooth has a cavity, the dentist removes the decay and fills the hole with a composite or silver filling, which is ideally no more than 50% of the tooth. The tooth is what supports the filling. When you get a cavity that takes up to 60% or more of the tooth, a crown is indicated. A crown covers the entire tooth and holds the tooth together. Sometimes we place a filling thinking there is enough tooth to hold the filling when actually there is not. The tooth then starts to break away because it can no longer support the filling. In this case we will credit the cost of the filling toward the cost of a crown and build up. In addition, for a period of five years from the date of service, we will refund the cost of a composite or silver filling due to breakage, misfit or decay at no cost to the patient.

 

2. This warranty is null and void if the patient does not maintain his/her six-month continuing care check-up and cleaning appointments.

 

Sealants Warranty

 

1. Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings which are applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent decay. Most tooth decay in children and adolescents occurs on the chewing surfaces of these back teeth or molars. Adults are also susceptible. This is because molars have irregular surfaces with pits and grooves which tend to trap food and bacteria debris. Sealants flow into and coat these pits and grooves so that bacteria cannot multiply and cause decay.

 

2. The teeth most likely to benefit from sealant application are the first and second molars just after they have erupted and before they have had a chance to decay. Children between the ages of 5 and 14 benefit most from sealants. Newer research also shows the benefits of adults getting sealants as the bacteria in their mouth change over time.

 

3. A sealant application can last for as long as five years and often longer. Sealants should be checked regularly and reapplied when they appear to have worn off. Because teeth are most susceptible to decay when they are young, preventing decay during the first 5 to 14 years after a tooth erupts is critical. For a period of five years from the original date of service, our office will reapply worn sealants at no cost to the patient.

 

4. This warranty is null and void if the patient does not maintain his/her six-month continuing care check-up and cleaning appointments.
