The wax-up serves as a preview of the final smile makeover. These wax mockups can be either made on replica models or directly on your tooth with the temporary material.
Using special matrices and dental materials, an intraoral mock-up is created that exactly duplicated the wax-up in temporary veneers to the mouth. This gives the patient the ability to visualize the new smile before committing to the final veneers.
Many patients love it right away, but some patients like to play with a few changes to color, shapes or lengths of the temporaries, before sharing the information with the lab to make the final porcelain veneers.
