Burbank Dental Lab's Smiles By Design diagnostic wax-ups are the blueprint to your final restorations. Every one of your cases represents a unique set of restorative and cosmetic needs because every case is a patient that is as unique as their fingerprint. The only way to evaluate the best design for the final dental restoration is to mock-up the case, check it out on an articulator, and finally test it as provisionals.
A construction company wouldn’t build a bridge without an architect’s design, an engineer’s study, and a tested scale model; dental restorations require the same detailed analysis. The execution of the final restorative solution can become routine even in very complex cases, and simple cosmetic cases can be elevated from nice cosmetic results to a case that brings the WOW factor. Do you want average results or to create life-changing smile makeovers that will win your patient’s appreciation for years to come? Your Smiles By Design team custom designs each case to meet your specifications, and always has the goal to create a functionally sound and esthetically pleasing design.
Many of your patients have the desire to improve their smiles; after all, a person’s smile can make or break their success in many areas of their life. Even though they want a nicer smile, it is a difficult emotional decision to make. There is no better way to assure a patient that they can achieve the results they dream of than to create a 3-D mock-up of the final result. Many of our clients go one step further and use a putty matrix of the wax-up to create a quick composite mock-up in the patient’s mouth. The patient can “wear” their smile home and evaluate it. Nothing will get a YES to cosmetic treatment faster than that. Smiles By Design diagnostic wax-ups are ideal for this type of case presentation and are the most certain way to build your practice and give your patients the smile they truly desire.
Smiles By Design diagnostic wax-ups are ideal for case presentations, as a template for provisionals, and as a preview of the final restorations.
For optimal case presentation and maximum case acceptance, diagnostic wax-ups are delivered on white presentation models. Pink tissue wax is available upon request.
Diagnostic wax-ups have several key benefits to your practice:
- Smiles By Design wax-ups can be used as a patient education tool that expedites the patient forward to beginning the case.
- A prep guide can be created in a clear guide or putty matrix from the wax-up.
- Provisionals can be fabricated chairside or in the lab from the wax-up.
Nothing is worse than surprises chairside. To avoid most of those, the wax-up is the ultimate communication tool between you, the patient, and Burbank Dental Lab. Smiles By Design Diagnostic wax-ups will add a new dimension to your practice that will benefit your patients and build your practice.
