Before & After
Not all cases are as extreme as this, not only did it give the patient a great new smile but It gave them the confidence they had aways lacked.
Communication between the laboratory ceramist and the dentist has always been the key to obtaining superior resulst in both asthetic and functional aspects of restorative dentistry. An essential yet overlooked part of this communication is the role of the diagnostic wax-up.
The diagnostic wax-up, when used properly, can provide valuable information to the dentist, ceramist, and patient. It may help dentists determine the amount of reduction necessary to achieve the final result, keeping preparation as conservative as possible.
Another important role of the diagnostic wax-up is in the fabrication of the provisional restorations or temporaries. An impression of the wax-up is taken with a putty material. In the mouth, the temporaries can be contoured and customized to the patient’s facial features. Occlusion can also be evaluated, and when this, along with asthetics, are deemed satisfactory, an impression can be made to communicate the proper size, shape, length, and form to the lab.
