Planning Your Smile Makeover
Everyone has different concepts of beauty, and this applies to teeth as well. The best possible outcome of any dental service lies in the doctor and care team understanding your desires for your smile. Each patient's treatment plan should be individualized and custom designed to compliment the patient's facial structure, skin and eyes. Your dentist has pursued advanced training in dental aesthetics to confidently guide you in making good choices.Keep in mind that disease, nutrition, occlusal function (your bite), accidental injury, your genetic makeup and other factors affect the appearance of your smile. One of your dentist's objectives will be to solve as many problems as possible, in order to make sure your new smile is optimally healthy and functional so it lasts a long, long time.
A wax-up model of your mouth provides significant information for both you and the dentist, and it will help both of you in this process. The dental team will "take impressions" (make molds) of your mouth and from the molds create a mock-up of your mouth in wax. On this wax, your dentist can modify the shapes and contour of your teeth and examine the changes in three dimensions. This allows your dentist to do a proper and realistic assessment of your bite.
Cosmetic dentistry without regard to the bite (stable occlusion) is asking for failure. The wax-up enables your dentist to properly diagnose your condition and determine what is really the best care for you.
