Does such exist for dental work?

A `lifetime guarantee' just hands over some of the quality control to the 
customer.

What would you  give for an amalgam lifetime and for a composite lifetime?

Is it better to spend a lot longer being very sure that a filling will 
not fail or to do it quickly and replace it if it fails within an avergae 
lifetime of a filling for that sort?
