When it comes to reconstructive dental procedures, seeing is believing. Nothing gives your patients more confidence in your ability to deliver optimal results than seeing a wax-up model of the final outcome. Whether you are a prosthodontist, orthodontist, oral surgeon, or a general dentist providing restorative services, we can help you take the guesswork out of complex reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, like:
- Orthodontic treatment
- Crown and bridgework
- Gum contouring
- And more
The 3D Wax-Up
A wax-up is a 3-D model that can be produced in stunning visual detail. Patients are much more likely to agree to a complex treatment when they see a wax-up than if they do not. The wax up allows patients to see and hold their new smile, making it easier to look past the cost of the procedure and into a future without the oral health and aesthetic issues that hold them back.
Wax-ups also allow you to work together with your patients to identify possible complications and modify the patient treatment plan before performing a reconstructive procedure. You can answer questions, share your expertise, and make recommendations for which materials might best fit your patient’s needs.
There are different types of wax-ups, each of which can be created in varying detail and used for different purposes, such as:
- Diagnostic (when treatment planning is the goal)
- Orthodontic (when repositioning the teeth is necessary)
- Full Contour Visualization (when aesthetics are key)
- Case Presentation (the most realistic version of the final results)
