Step 2 – Wax mock-up and trial smile
Detailed impressions or digital scans are taken of the teeth for the artist that is Simon’s dental technician to build a wax preview based on the initial computer simulations.
A silicon key of this wax mock up can then be used to replicate this trial smile in the patient’s mouth using acrylic. This procedure is very quick and completely painless as the acrylic simply slips on top of the teeth and can be gently removed after the smile has been test-driven. This smile “test drive” is documented with photographs and video and the patient can see the difference a new smile could make without committing to anything more at this time.
Simon then will discuss with you the various options and estimates, which are required to achieve this beautiful new smile. With modern dentistry there are always many treatment options to suit different budgets or expectations.
