Warranty information

 

Composite (White) Fillings

We have restored some of your teeth with tooth-colored materials.  The resin (plastic) material used contains small “filler” particles of glass-like material for strength and wear resistance. These restorations will serve you well for several years. They contain the finest and most up-to-date materials available today. However, you should be aware of the following information about your new restorations:

{C}·      As with natural teeth, avoid chewing excessively hard foods on the filled teeth (hard candy, ice, corn nuts, etc.) because the resin material can break under extreme forces.

{C}·      Composite fillings set up hard right away. There is no waiting time to eat. Children should be observed until the anesthetic wears off. Due to the strange feeling of the anesthetic, many children will chew the inside of their lips, cheeks, or tongue which can cause serious damage.

{C}·      Sensitivity to hot and cold is common for a few weeks following a dental restoration. Usually, the deeper the cavity, the more sensitive the tooth will be. If you feel the bite is not correctly balanced, please call for an appointment for a simple adjustment.

{C}·      Grinding/Clenching: Patients who grind/clench their teeth typically have more post-op problems with any given treatment rendered. Expect more post-op sensitivity and tenderness, as well as, a longer, more difficult recovery period. Properly designed and fitted bite guards help alleviate these problems.

{C}·      The gum tissue could have been irritated during the procedure and may be sore for a few days together with the anesthetic injection site. These things typically resolve quickly over a few days.

{C}·      The finished restoration may be contoured slightly different and have a different texture than the original tooth. Your tongue usually magnifies this small difference, but you will become accustomed to this in a few days.

{C}·      Proper brushing, flossing, and regular 6-month (minimal) cleanings are essential to the long-term stability and appearance of your restorations. Often, problems that may develop with the fillings can be found at any early stage and repaired easily, while waiting for a longer time may require more extensive treatment. 

Warranty information

1.    When a tooth has a cavity the dentist removes the decay and fills the hole with a filling material; the tooth supports the filling. The ideal filling is no more than 50 percent of the tooth. This leaves half the tooth to support the filling. When you get a cavity that takes up 60 percent or more of the tooth, a crown/onlay is indicated. A crown/onlay covers most of the tooth and holds the tooth together. It is stronger than a filling. Sometimes we place a filling thinking there Is enough tooth to hold the filling when actually it turns out there is not. The tooth then starts to break away because it can no longer support the filling. In this case we will credit the cost of the filling towards the cost of a crown/onlay.

In addition, for a period of three years from the date of service, we will replace the filling if it fails at no additional cost to the patient.

 

2.    This warranty is null and void if the patient does not maintain their 6-month continuing care cleaning appointments with 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics.
