DentalDB Mockup

The Mockup reconstruction can be used to start the treatment planning, setting up teeth, and design e.g. a new smile without previous preparation. From this set up, it can be created a "clip-on" device or a Mockup model which allows the patient to physically try out the new smile based on the Smile Creator planning. The purpose of this reconstruction type is to check the appearance of the new smile quickly in the patient's mouth for improved patient communication. Check this page for further information about how to create a project in DentalDB.
