New cars don’t even come with a 5-year warranty!
If you have ever gotten a crown at another dentist, only to have that crown break in the next year or two, you know it can be an expensive, and frustrating situation.
Does your dentist stand behind their work?
Dr. Britton does.
We are very proud of the quality of care we provide. That’s why we stand behind it, with a 5-year warranty on all major work. This includes:
Should a crown break or require replacement, Dr. Britton will do so at no additional charge.
This warranty is conditional upon the following:
The patient maintains an active recall or hygiene visits, not to exceed 6 months between cleanings.
The patient maintains regular check up x-rays once a year, or as needed/recommended by the doctor.
Most often, crowns are needed due to cracks or fractures in the tooth. Should a fracture under the crown require a root canal, the root canal will not be included under the warranty. However, if any damage occurs to the crown from the root canal, the crown will be replaced.
When teeth have deep decay or a fracture, Dr. Britton may use an interim, medicated cement to calm the tooth. The cement is not permanent. Should the crown fall off, call the office immediately. Loss of the crown (by putting it in a Ziploc bag, in your purse, or leaving it off for days, etc) will not be covered by the warranty. An additional lab fee may ensue.
For veneers, should any breakage occur, they will be replaced, but changes in shape, length, or color will not be warrantied once the patient aesthetically approves them prior to cementation.
Patients who have bruxism and refuse a night guard will be responsible for the lab fee of a new crown.
