Wax-Ups or Tooth Models


When a patient comes to us needing significant restorative work, Dr. Tryon personally sculpts a wax-up, or waxed tooth model to physically illustrate what can be done to improve the smile and bite. This wax-up is similar to a blueprint for a house, enabling both the doctor and the patient to see what can be done to improve the function and beauty of a smile. Each tooth is measured and sculpted proportionally to fit the patient as well as provide a balanced bite. By using this effective tool, both the doctor and the patient can confidently proceed with treatment.
