What is Mock-Up?
The application we call mock-up is the process of temporarily bonding and shaping composite materials specially produced for this job to the tooth surface without any bonding to the tooth. Direct mock-up application takes approximately 10-15 minutes. This is a preliminary rehearsal. After the mock up, the patient is photographed again. Thus, the physician has the chance to explain all the details of the treatment in a concrete way through this work. Visual; It makes a serious contribution to diagnosis and treatment limits.
Mock-Up is a Concrete Way of Communication Between Patient and Physician.
Patients see their new smiles holistically and directly on their own faces without having to imagine them. They get more ideas about the treatment and can even describe their expectations more easily through the mock-up application. Therefore, changes can be made on the mock up. The colour, form and position of the teeth and their relationship with other facial elements can be determined before the treatment begins. Thus; the anxiety of what kind of tooth will be made at the beginning of the treatment and the disappointment that may be experienced at the end of the treatment are completely eliminated. In short, mock up is a concrete way of communication between the patient and the physician.
Our patients can also take this mock up image from their own phones. They can get the opinions of their friends and relatives. Since people and temperament structures have differences in decision-making, the decision-making process is personalised. If the aim of an aesthetic smile design is the happiness of the person, it ensures that our patients are fully sure of some details during the decision-making phase. Maybe the person only needs teeth whitening and “Hollywood Smile” is not suitable for his/her expectations. Therefore, MOCK UP and the time to spend with the mock is important.
