Dental Anatomy and Occlusion: Maxilliary Central Wax-Up

When waxing up an anterior tooth it is necessary to concentrate on esthetic value first and then later work on establishing function. This maxim is especially critical with the maxillary anterior teeth. In this procedure we will be do a complete wax-up of an interior incisor and align it with the adjacent teeth. We have replaced the tooth #9 with a prepared tooth. The marginal outline extends all the way around the tooth from the labial to the lingual surfaces including the proximal surfaces. For demonstration purposes, we will outline the margins of the tooth with a darker color wax, and use tooth colored-wax to complete the wax-up of the coronal portion.
