Glimpse Your Future with a Cosmetic Wax-Up

Every patient who is planning to have comprehensive cosmetic or restorative care wants to know what their smile will look like when all is said and done. But that’s impossible, right?

Not at all!

At Bethesda Sedation Dentistry, Dr. Schlossberg and Dr. Klotz are happy to give patients a glimpse into their future with a cosmetic wax-up.

What Is a Cosmetic Wax-Up?

A cosmetic wax-up is a specially made wax piece that resembles your smile, with the changes we recommend already factored in. That means that what you’ll see with a finished cosmetic wax-up isn’t your smile as it is now, but your smile as it will be in the future.

The major advantage of cosmetic wax-ups is that they build confidence. It’s one thing to hear about how a service will change your smile; it’s quite another to see it. If you’re in doubt at all about how we can help, a cosmetic wax-up will help.

But that’s not the only benefit. A cosmetic wax-up can also show us if we need to make changes to your plan. With an approximation of your new smile right in front of us, we can decide if another service might work better before we implement anything.

Are you looking forward to having cosmetic or restorative work done on your teeth or gums? With a cosmetic wax-up we can help you see how your new smile will look before we even start a single procedure. Call Bethesda Sedation Dentistry to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
