  • Mirror - to help make a good impression
  • Please read all the steps and check the examples before you start.
  • During the summer months ensure you do your impression in a cool location, heat can speed up putty setting time.
  • There are many videos on Youtube - it is highly recommended that you have a look before attempting.

How to take your Impression

  • Practice putting the tray in your mouth before starting the process. The tray will need to sit under your top & bottom lip, practice lifting your top lip out of the way.
  • Put gloves on and mix the WHITE and BLUE putties together until it makes a uniform blue mixture. There should be no white streaks,
  • Work quickly to do this - maximum 20 seconds.
  • Roll the putty into a sausage and place it into the impression tray. Press the putty down lightly to create a flat surface.
  • 15 seconds working time.
  • Once the 2 putties are mixed together it will start to go hard in 30-60 seconds.
  • Looking in the mirror, open your mouth as wide as you can and align your teeth in the middle of the tray.
  • Ensure there is plenty of putty towards the front of the edges of the tray and avoid your teeth scraping the front of the tray.
  • Push the tray up or down slowly and as far as you can.
  • Make sure you lift your lip up out of the way while pushing the tray straight up. We need an impression of your gums also not just your teeth.
  • Hold your impression for 4 minutes. Do not talk or move the tray during this time. Doing so can ruin the impression.
  • You can press the skin in between your top lip and your nose, this helps push the putty into the gums and give a good impression. Do this in the first minute.
  • After 4 minutes gently pull the impression down to release it from the mouth.
  • Rinse with cold water and let dry.
  • Check your impression and send us a photo for confirmation before sending back.
