You have around 90 seconds before the putty starts to go firm, so aim to have the putty mixed and rolled in 60 seconds, then into your mouth pressing evenly.
A good impression should look like a perfect rendering of your teeth – this means the outlines of your teeth are defined, without drag marks and uneven lines, as well as making sure the whole tooth has been captured ie the impressions are deep enough to see impressions of the tops of the teeth and gum line.
The gumline is the point above and below your teeth the meets your gums. Its important to capture this in your impressions as this will help our team at the lab manufacture the perfect fitting aligners.
When spreading the putty in the tray, make sure that there is enough putty spread evenly in the tray. When you sink your teeth into the putty ensure you can feel that your teeth are fully covered by the putty and your upper lip is pulled over the top of the tray. To help make sure you capture the gums and tops of the teeth you can massage the top lip that’s over the tray so you are essentially pushing the putty into and around your teeth and gums.
You may experience some discomfort while waiting the 3 minutes for the putty to set. However, this should not cause you pain.To avoid discomfort make sure you choose the correct sized tray for your mouth. If you choose a size too big it can hit your jawbone uncomfortably.
Yes, there will be saliva involved and a bit of dribble, so be prepared with a box of tissues.

The end result of completing a scan or an impression kit is the same, there is no difference in the quality of the outcome. Whichever way you prefer to start your EZ SMILE journey, both methods will create accurate models of your teeth for us to create your 3D treatment plan and perfectly fitting aligners. If you live in a remote area or are not close to a scanning partner clinic, then an impression kit is a perfect solution.
