Cosmetic Temps &
Cosmetic temps & diagnostic wax-ups are two great devices in getting that perfect, natural smile. Cosmetic temps provides high quality natural teeth. Diagnostic wax-ups serve as a visual prototype, providing a close idea of what the final product will look like.
Prescribing Cosmetic Temps will provide your patients with the most natural cosmetic temporaries available. Cosmetic Temps have an aesthetic three layer shell which includes wire reinforcement for extra security at no additional change.
Diagnostic Wax-Ups are a valuable tool for any smile makeover because they give the patient an accurate preview of how his or her finished case will look. With this technique, the lab removes the desired amount of tooth structure from the preoperative model and the restoration is waxed onto the patient’s actual prepped teeth. This method accurately shows the patient, dentist and lab technician what is realistically attainable for the patient.
The Diagnostic Wax-Up also helps many patients determine whether to pursue treatment because they can compare this waxed-up model to their existing smile. For this reason, all Diagnostic Wax-Ups are fabricated from white stone models with white wax to produce the most lifelike result possible.
Now your Diagnostic Wax-Up can be scanned, digitized and stored for duplication in the final restoration. Simply request that we “scan and save” your Diagnostic Wax-Up information when you send us your case. This diagnostic service requires five working days and provides you with the ultimate treatment planning tool for consistently superior results.
