Lifetime Warranty

Dental implant treatment is one of the most predictable options in dentistry, relying on a complex combination of proven high quality products and the treating dentist’s knowledge and experience. DESS has a history of providing reliable high quality prosthetic components for most available implant platforms on the market. We are proud to introduce a comprehensive NEW WARRANTY on our products alone as well as in combination with third party implants.

Lifetime replacement warranty of DESS components.

Lifetime reimbursement of third-party implants used together with DESS abutments.

DESS provides a lifetime replacement warranty for all abutments including the abutment screw manufactured and supplied by Terrats Medical SL. (see details under DESS Product warranty). We will also guarantee third party implants used in combination with our abutments excluding immediate restorations.

The third party warranty will apply if the manufacturer of the implant used, limits or refuses its guarantee on the implant because it was used in combination with a DESS abutment. (Please refer to the DESS terms of warranty)
