Smile Warranty

 

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with the best possible dental care available. Our commitment to excel in our profession is evident by standing behind our treatment. We offer this Limited Smile Warranty as a proactive gesture in helping maintain your oral health for years to come. Treatment is individualized for each patient and their oral health needs. It is imperative that you continue home care of your teeth and gums in addition to scheduling your routine dental cleaning and professional exams as recommended by our office. It is also imperative to follow recommended treatments such as occlusal guards that will prolong the life of some restorations.
