Dentek guarantees our prostheses to be free from defects in materials and/or craftsmanship. All prosthetics will be fabricated using the appropriate materials and according to the material manufacturer’s specifications. Completed prostheses will conform to the specifications of the completed lab slip by the prescribing dentist. Dentek offers a conditional warranty against failure in material or craftsmanship on fixed, implant, partial denture, and full denture products of one year from invoice date. All thermoformed products, nightguards, splints and temporary crowns and bridges are warrantied for thirty days from invoice date. All warranty claims must be processed through the original prescribing dentist. The original failed restoration must be returned to Dentek within the warranty period for the warranty to be honored. Dentek requires an intraoral photo of failed prosthesis prior to removal to document failure to material manufacturer. No alterations from the original prescription are covered. Costs incurred by the prescribing dentist for removal of failed prosthesis, or reinsertion of remade prosthesis are not covered. Consequential damages to patient including lost wages, inconvenience or pain and suffering are not covered. Prosthetic failures resulting from accident, neglect, abuse, failure of supportive tooth or tissue structures, improper adjustments or improper dental hygiene are not covered.
Dentek fabricates custom dental prosthetics specific to individual patients, therefore returns of any kind for credit or refund are not accepted. Dentek will make necessary adjustments based on the original impression and prescription to ensure complete satisfaction. Any adjustments or remakes due to the original prescription not being followed will be completed free of charge using the original impression. Permanent cementation of any prosthesis indicates both prescribing dentist and patient approval of fit, shade, contour, function, and esthetics. Any remake of a permanently cemented prostheis that did not fail in material or craftmanship will be charged full price of restoration on prevailing fee schedule. If a remake or adjustment of an uncemented prostheic is requested with a change from original prescription, original prosthesis and supporting materials must be returned or a 100% remake charge will apply.
