In cosmetic dentistry, it is often important for dentists and patients to determine what the final product will look like before actually performing one or more procedures. To do this, our dentist will make a dental wax-up to show you how your smile will end up looking once the decided treatment(s) are complete. First, our dentist will create an impression of your upper and lower arches. With these impressions, our dentist will make modifications according to the procedures you are planning to have done. Once the modifications are complete, our dentist will place a tooth-colored wax along the surface of the impression and mold it to the fake teeth. In the end, you will be able to review the final product with our dentist to determine if the discussed procedures will meet your needs.
Dental wax-ups are convenient and helpful when it comes to planning any modifications you plan on making to your smile. Once the final wax-up is complete, our dentist can make a digital copy of the impression and make any further changes. If you are looking to make changes to your smile, we invite you to contact our office and schedule a consultation with our dentist where you can receive your own dental wax-up.
