Keystone AFG aesthetic translucent waxes, created by Alberto Battistelli, are used to construct wax teeth that faithfully reproduce natural teeth with a layering system similar to that used by prosthodontists for dental ceramics. The pastel coloration with light shades is very similar to dentine and natural enamel and is accompanied by slightly brighter colors. This reproduces individual characterization in a way that is similar to what is normally done with super-colors or intensive masses during the construction of ceramic teeth.
Keystone AFG aesthetic translucent waxes are important means of communication with patients who will be able to see simulation of the work on a plaster model with a final effect that is very close to the definitive result.
Keystone AFG wax kits are also useful as a teaching tool to help students grasp layering and learning techniques in dental aesthetics.
AFG wax kits contain black waxes to create perfect marginal closures, an opaque white wax, and an opaque grey wax for the technique of mono-color waxing, which assists in the viewing of anatomical details.
White Wax is for mono-color waxing, opal effects and imitation of decalcified areas in aesthetic waxing. Dentin A1 is for modeling of light dental nucleus. Dentin A3 is for modeling of dental nucleus or the neck. The blue/grey wax is the imitation of the areas of grey-blue transparency. Neutral is for the imitation of the effects of translucence, enamel and dilution of all the masses to make them more translucent. Orange is for modeling of the neck, the back of occlusal zones, the mamelons and the interproximal areas. The light brown is for the coloration of the neck and the proximal areas and the dark brown in for the simulation of caries.
