Peace of Mind at Dental Designs Clinic
Dental treatment is an investment in your health, and it is natural to wonder how long that investment can last. When you come to us, we are committed to take good care of your health.
We help you protect your wellbeing, and your investment in your health, by providing high quality, long lasting dental treatment. Here at Dental Designs, we are proud of the work we do, and we confident in our quality.

Treatments Covered under our Dental Warranty
Bridge/Ceramic Filling/Crown Warranty
- 5 year warranty applies if, under normal conditions, the dental restoration breaks, loosens, cracks or dislodges.
- Replacement with a similar or better material is covered
- it does not cover the treatment cost of root canal treatments (if needed thereafter) nor the breakage/fracture of the natural tooth supporting it. In cases whereby the dentist has advised the patient beforehand that the restoration may not last due to tooth/gum/bite factors, the warranty is not valid.
- 5 year Invisalign warranty which begins on the commencement of Invisalign FULL treatment
- The initial Invisalign treatment is determined to be complete when retainers are made. However, after that, if there is a need for further Invisalign trays (eg. due to relapse from not wearing retainers), an administrative fee of $350 will be charged for each refinement set made.
- No charges apply for Invisalign consultation, attachments, IPR under the Invisalign Warranty.
- Only applies for Invisalign FULL treatment, that is started at our clinic. Does not apply to transfer cases.
Dental Implant Warranty
- 10 year warranty applies if the entire procedure was done at our clinic, including the bone grafting, implant placement and crown.
The Patient’s Commitment
Maintenance of good dental health is also dependent on you, the patient. In cases of dental neglect, disease is unavoidable. The warranty is only valid if you abide by the following conditions:
Bacteria builds up on the teeth naturally after some time, which cannot be removed by just brushing. This causes tooth decay and gum disease. To avoid that, please let us professionally clean and check your teeth for decay and other issues at least once every 6 months
Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day, and following any special instructions your dentist or hygienist has given you to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.
Please notify us and come in for a check immediately once you encounter any problems after the treatment. Any delay may result in more damage to the condition and may void the warranty.
*Limited Dental Warranty: Terms and Conditions

Warranties may be deemed null and void if:
