CRYSTAL CITY DENTAL CARE LIMITED DENTAL WARRANTY

Our practice is proud of the dentistry that we provide for you and your family. Our goal is not just to correct any dental problems you may have, but to also show you how to prevent dental disease in the future and save you time and unnecessary expenses.

The long-term success of the treatment we provide depends on the care of your teeth and gums at home and keeping all recommended professional cleaning with the recommended time frames. These appointments include periodic examinations, by the dentist, of the teeth, gums, bone, oral cavity, throat, muscles of the head and neck, as well as oral cancer screenings, x-rays, cleanings, and fluoride treatments. The products we recommend for you and the frequency of visits depend on your individual condition. Visits may be every 2,3,4, or 6 months, depending on your oral health.

With that in mind, we offer the following limited dental warranties for the investment you have made in preserving your oral health.

Treatment Covered by Our Limited Crystal City Dental Care Warranty

Our Obligations

Patient’s Responsibility

 

Dental Sealants

 

 We will repair or replace Sealants for a   period of 2 yrs. from the date of   placement.

 

 You must keep the prescribed regular Hygiene   appointments (usually 6 months) within a 21-day   grace period for routine professional exams, x-rays,   and cleaning at our office.

 

 

 

Crowns, Bridges, Onlays,

&

Veneers

 

 We will replace or repair the same type   of restoration at no extra charge to you   during the first 1 yr. from the date of   placement. If a veneered or onlayed   tooth is damaged or has a material   failure to the extent that a crown is   necessary, the full fee originally paid for   the veneer or onlay will be applied   towards the crown. You will only pay for   the difference.

 

 You must keep the prescribed regular Hygiene   appointments (usually 6 months) within a 21-day   grace period for routine professional exams, x-rays,   and cleanings at our office. This does not include   accidents, acts-of-God, and willful damage to the   prosthetic which could affect normal, healthy teeth.

 We cannot predict if and/or when gum or nerve   treatments may be required on the covered tooth. If   needed, they would require additional fees.

 

 

 

Composite Fillings

  

 If the composite restoration fails, we will   replace or repair it for the period of 1yr.   from the date of placement. If the   restoration breaks and requires a crown   or onlay within this 1 yr. period, we will   credit the cost of the filling towards the   crown or onlay. (Warranty is void if the   restored tooth was recommended for a   crown or onlay originally)

 

 You must keep the prescribed regular Hygiene   appointments (usually 6 months) within a 21-day   grace period for routine professional exams, x-rays,   and cleaning at our office. This does not include   accidents, acts-of-God, and willful damage to the   filling, which could affect normal healthy teeth.

 We cannot predict if and/or when gum or nerve   treatments may be required on the restored tooth. If   needed, they would require additional fees.

  

Dentures

&

Partial Dentures

   

 We will repair dentures and partials for a   period of 2 yrs. from the date of   placement if a tooth chips/breaks or the   flange breaks under normal conditions.   This warranty does not apply to any   accidents and/or dropping the denture.

  

 Full upper and lower denture patients must be seen   once every 12 months in our office. Patients   with some of their own natural teeth must keep the   prescribed regular Hygiene appointments (usually 6   months) within a 21-day grace period for routine   professional exams, x-rays, and cleanings at our   office.
