Why is a wax up necessary before cosmetic dental treatment with Leicester Loughborough Nottingham Dentist

If you are undergoing cosmetic dental treatment,  at the Dental Suite we always recommend our patients to have a wax up prepared by the lab technician prior to starting with the veneer/crown/bridge work.

The reasons why a wax up is such an essential step in cosmetic dental treatment are listed below:

1- to see the shape of the teeth, so that you can check the length and the width and any changes can be made prior to the definitive restorations

2- can be used to make temporary crowns/veneers

3- to check function and bite forces when used as temporaries, so if any issues are present with the bite these can be corrected prior to the definitive restorations
