Diagnostic wax-up is very valuable model to plan for a cosmetic Smile Makeover. It helps determine the final outcome and offers a simulation of what the teeth will look like after shaping the teeth into an ideal appearance. This helps your dentist see the end result before cosmetic dentistry procedure starts. A set of dental impressions is taken of the teeth, along with digital photos to create dental casts, which then are shaped, modified, and positioned prior to the beginning of cosmetic dental rehabilitation. The final result is placement of crowns and/or veneers based on the wax-up model.
