Smile makeovers are becoming ever popular among consumers. A diagnostic mockup is a tool that practitioners can utilise during the smile design process to evaluate the treatment plan and communicate with patients.
A diagnostic mockup changes the model or intraoral scans of the patient in line with the specifications of the proposed treatment plan. Essentially the diagnostic mockup replicates the final restorations.
The purpose of a diagnostic mockup is to evaluate the aesthetics and functionality of the proposed treatment plan.
