Please take a moment to review the warranties we pride ourselves in offering you.
CROWN OR BRIDGE
- For a period of 3 years from date of service, we will refund the cost of a crown or bridge due to breakage, misfit, or decay at no cost to the patient.*
- This warranty is null and void if the patient does not maintain all his/her 6-month continuing care cleaning appointments.
*Gold and porcelain crowns are the same for practically all cases except that porcelain can chip. Approximately one (1) out of every 100 porcelain crowns chip and need replacement. This will never happen with gold crowns. It the porcelain chips in the first three (3) years, we will replace it free. However, if it chips after the three-year period, you will be charged the regular fee for a new crown. This should be taken into consideration when choosing between a procelain or a gold crown.
- When a tooth has a cavity the dentist removes the decay and fills the hole with a composite filling, which is ideally no more than 50% of the tooth. The tooth is what supports the filling. When a cavity that takes up 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 there actually is not. The tooth then starts to break away because it no longer can support the filling. In this case we will credit the cost of the filling toward the cost if a crown and build up. In addition, for a period of 5 years from the date of service, we will refund the cost of a composite filling due to breakage, misfit or decay at no cost to the patient.
- This warranty will be null and void if the patient does no maintain all his/her 6-month continuing care cleaning appointments.
With today’s technology almost everything we have learned is on the preventive side. Instead of going to the dentist every few years for “Drill, Fill, and Bill,” let’s try preventive dentistry. If you spend 4 minutes in the morning and 4 minutes in the evening brushing, flossing and doing other special treatments your dentist or hygienist have recommended and let your dentist or hygienist professionally clean your teeth, check for decay, apply a fluoride treatment, or apply sealants, you can prevent most of all disease. This is why all our warranties will be null and void if we don’t see you for your regular 6-month check-ups. With 6 month check-ups, your teeth and gums are winners!
