Just as an engineer creates a model to ensure that a machine will work correctly, Dr. Franzen often fabricates a wax-up model of the jaws and teeth when working on more complex restorative or cosmetic cases. By building an accurate model of your mouth, we can test prosthetics, and other dental work to ensure a proper fit. You can also see what our proposed solutions will look like on the wax model so you’ll be able to make a truly informed decision about your dental care. If adjustments are required, Dr. Franzen can adapt the model to reflect the changes before the case goes to the dental laboratory. Wax-ups provide us with a realistic projection of how your dental work will look and function, which results in more accurate and natural-looking restorations.
