Diagnostic Wax Ups
At Rutherford Dental Lab we offer FREE Diagnostic Wax-Ups to you and your patients. Once a Diagnostic Wax-Up is prescribed, we would like discuss with you which smile guide and anatomy design is desired. After the discussion we will fabricate your Diagnostic Wax-Up and send the case back to your office. When your patient comes back for the final restorations and you send the case back to us to fabricate them, we will discount the Diagnostic Wax-Up free of charge from the final bill.
Diagnostic Wax-Ups are a valuable tool for any smile makeover. They give the patient an accurate preview of how their case will look. By creating a diagnostic wax up, the lab removes the desired amount of tooth structure from the preoperative model and the restoration is waxed onto the patient's prepped teeth from the model. A Diagnostic Wax-Up accurately shows the patient, dentist and lab technician what is realistically attainable for the patient. The Diagnostic Wax-Up also helps many patients determine what kinds of treatment are possible. Patients are able to compare their Diagnostic Wax-Up to their existing smile.
