Smile Protection Policy

We are often asked how long a porcelain crown, porcelain veneer, or bridge last? Many things can influence the longevity of your porcelain restorations. Even our best estimates are just that…estimates. However, if one of our porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, or bridges should break, become loose, be damaged or come off we will repair or replace it at no charge.

This even includes accidental trauma from any accident you may have (skiing, bicycling, falls, auto accidents, etc.). Regardless of who is at fault, you can rest easy knowing we will repair or replace your porcelain at no charge.

SMILE PROTECTION POLICY

Smiles By Garcia will, at our discretion, repair or replace any of our crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers that are damaged for any reason (including accidental trauma).

PROVIDED THAT:

  • You have completed your required appointment for final polish and bite adjustment by our office following placement of the crowns, porcelain veneers or bridges.
  • Repair or replacement is done at Smiles By Garcia’s office.
  • The tooth in question can be saved.
  • You have had at least 2 dental cleanings per year since the placement of the crown, porcelain veneer or bridge. Your cleaning DOES NOT have to be done in our office.
  • You inform us immediately of any dental problem related to our treatment or discovered at your two annual cleanings.
  • This policy excludes any damage cause by recurrent decay.

NOTE: IF ANY FURTHER TREATMENT IS NEEDED AT THE TIME OF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT (SUCH AS ROOT CANAL, EXTRACTION, OR IMPLANTS, ETC.) AN ADDITIONAL FEE WILL BE CHARGED.
