Product Spotlight: Glidewell Lifetime Warranties
The Glidewell team takes its responsibility to the dentist and patient seriously. In fact, the company has implemented computerized workflows to enhance the accuracy and case-to-case consistency of its services. But despite this careful planning and workflow enhancement process, the customization and precision involved in restorative dentistry means that complications can still occur.
If you prescribe through Glidewell and your case has any problem or challenge whatsoever, the lab team will make things right — at no additional laboratory cost to you. The company is proud to back all laboratory services with industry-leading warranties. Moreover, the services most popular with dentists are now covered for life.
The driving force behind extending these warranties to lifetime coverage is the company’s commitment to quality, which inspires ongoing research and clinical validation. The clinical data shows that complications with Glidewell’s popular dental solutions are highly unlikely. The Hahn Tapered Implant has shown a 99.2% success rate in clinical study,1 and the original BruxZir Zirconia has shown a 100% survival rate after 10 years in an independent clinical study published by the Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report®.2 Thus, these lifetime warranties are intended to provide additional confidence in Glidewell services and to reflect the quality of the technicians and workflows. If any issues do occur, it is the company’s hope that dentists are able to rest easy knowing that the case will be made right with no added laboratory cost to the practitioner.
