Diagnostic Wax-Ups for Smile Design

Wax-ups are a wonderful tool for both dentist and patient. With this process, the patient sees a natural-looking, three-dimensional model of how cosmetic dentistry can improve the shape and length of his/her teeth.

It is also helpful for the dentist to have matrices and a preparation guide made from the wax-up to assist in creating temporaries and communicating any desired changes for the final restorations.
