Remake policies

As a Lab, we view ourselves as a member of your dental team, and we intend to do our part in being a good team member. All single unit* remakes will be at no charge except under the following circumstances:

  1. Concord Dental Lab inquired about the die, margin or impression. However, the customer approved and requested completion of the case.
  2. Concord Dental requested a try-in, but the customer declined and asked for a completed case.
  3. A try-in was completed and approved by the office.
  4. The teeth are re-prepared.
  5. There is a shade change/correction different from the original request.
  6. A practice has risen into our top 5% for remakes and has been identified with a chronic remake problem with numerous no lab-error remakes**.

No Lab Error Remake Reasons include:

  1. Cases that are re-prepped at attempted insert of crown/bridge
  2. Crown provided fits master die/model but does not fit mouth indicating poor original impression or temporary-driven drift
  3. Final restorative shade or product change different from the original request.
  4. Treatment planning was incomplete or not followed on large multi-step cases.

*All Multi-unit case remakes are subject to a manager review and are only at no charge when found to be a lab error.
**If any of the no-lab error events listed above are the sole reason for remake with any client, the remake may be shared by billing material cost only, or no charge at the discretion of CDL management.
