How to Order a Physical Wax-Up

The physical wax-up (also known as diagnostic wax-up) assists patients in evaluating treatment options by comparing a printed model to their current smile. 

Physical Wax-Ups:

  • Provide patients with a precise preview of their expected final outcome
  • Serve as a tool to assess tooth shape, smile line, occlusion, and vertical dimension
  • A suck-down matrix ($29) for temporaries is added automatically to the Physical Wax-Up

How it is Fabricated

Our physical wax-ups are 3D-printed


Scans Required to Fabricate

To fabricate a physical wax-up for your case, we need full arch scans of the maxillary (upper) and mandibular (lower) arches. These can be done by accessing the Wellness Scan feature in Chairside.
