A diagnostic wax-up is a roadmap to success when planning a restorative case. A traditional wax-up has long been an excellent tool to plan and communicate the details of a case between the clinician, patient and lab technician. Scanning and 3D printing technology have given dentists and technicians the ability to create and present a digital option for diagnostic wax-ups. The pros and cons of both traditional and digital wax-ups will be discussed, followed by case presentations utilizing both methods.
