At J. Foster Weems, DDS, our dentist, Dr. Weems, and our team are committed to helping you achieve optimal oral health. The dental care you receive conforms to a very high standard of care, and we are very confident in assuring you of a lasting comfort and quality. J. Foster Weems, DDS is proud of the dentistry that we provide for you and your family. Our goal is not only to correct any dental problems you may presently have but also to show you how to prevent gum disease in the future. Preventive action will save you time and unnecessary expense.

The long-term success of the dental treatment that we provide for you depends greatly upon your daily home care of your teeth and gums. Regular professional cleanings, exams, X-rays and fluoride treatments are also very important. The products recommended by our office for you and the frequency of your professional re-care visits (checkups) depend on your individual condition. These re-care visits may be every two to six months depending on your overall health. With that in mind, we offer the following limited dental warranties:

Dental Sealant — Sealants are plastic coatings placed on the chewing surfaces of the teeth to prevent decay in the pits and grooves of the teeth. These are the most common areas for children to get cavities. Flossing and the use of fluoride will help prevent decay from developing between the teeth. We will replace sealants for a period of two years after placement in the event they are lost. You must keep the regular prescribed re-care appointments or this warranty is null and void (minimum every six months).*

Composite (Tooth-Colored) Fillings — If a composite restoration is the recommended treatment of choice, we will replace or repair it in the event of failure for a period of five years. If the filling replaces the biting edge of the tooth, the pressure may exceed the strength of the plastic composite. Repeated fracture of this edge may necessitate using a stronger porcelain crown. You must keep the regular prescribed re-care appointments or this warranty is null and void (minimum every six months).*

Root Canals — Root canal treatment is about 96 percent successful. They do occasionally fail. If you lose your tooth within three years due to failure of the root canal (you must also have the tooth properly restored), we will refund the root canal fee or apply it as a credit toward a replacement tooth. You must keep the regular prescribed re-care appointments or this warranty is null and void (minimum every six months).*

Crowns, Bridges, Onlays and Porcelain Veneers — We will warranty these most comprehensive procedures for a full five years. We will replace or repair them at no charge during this five-year period if they break, are lost or decay with normal use (this does not include accidents that could also break normal, healthy teeth). You must keep the regular prescribed re-care appointments or this warranty is null and void (minimum every six months).*

Dentures and Partial Dentures — We will warranty dentures and partials for a period of three years if a tooth chips or breaks, or a flange breaks under normal use. This warranty does not cover accidents such as dropping your denture. Full upper and lower denture patients must be seen once every 12 months. Patients with some of their own natural teeth must keep the regular prescribed re-care appointments or this warranty is null and void (minimum every six months).*

*NOTE: Failure to have these regular visits with our office voids all warranties. Help us to help you maintain your teeth for a lifetime!
