Orbital Hybridization - Real or Approximation

I mean is there such a wavefunction of electrons in an atom, or are the only existing ones are the original ones, or are they both different description of the same thing?
The original orbitals and the resulting hybrid orbitals are solutions of the same Schrödinger equation. I do not know if we can determine which solutions are realized in an atom.
