Video Lecture 8
First step the esternal mock-up
Who doesn’t want a beautiful smile?
To better convince patients to start an additive rehabilitation, clinicians can count on the first step of the 3 Step Technique: the creation of the esthetic mock-up. By combining esthetic and function, the 3 Step Technique allows all the people involved (the patient, the clinician and the laboratory technician) to be on the same track, and to guide the workflow without any planning pitfalls or failures.
This lecture explains:
- Why the full-mouth wax-up should be progressive
- Why the mock-up should be external
- What to record during the mock-up visit, focusing both on the desiderd esthetic and functional outcome.
