How to make
your impressions

Top Tips

  • 1 Push evenly through the back and front teeth at the same time, then pull your lips over the front of the tray. Don’t push the front or back down first, otherwise you’ll get drag marks.
  • 2 Press the skin between your top lip and your nose (for upper arch) or between your lower lip and chin (for lower arch). This helps to capture the shape of each tooth and gumline. Wait 2-3 minutes and then carefully remove.
  • 3 Send us your photos.
  • 4 Review your impressions. Please see the EZ Checklist below.

What to avoid

What a bad impression looks like.
Avoid these common mistakes.
  • Broken teeth

    The teeth have broken through the putty
    and the tray is visible.

  • Impression not deep

    This impression is not deep enough.
    The gums and molars cannot be seen.

  • Lack of pressing

    Drag marks caused by lack of pressing.
    Shape of teeth & gumline are not visible.

  • Lip not over the front tray

    The lip was not over the front of the tray. Teeth
    are not close enough to the front of the tray.

Sorry! We won’t be able to use your
impressions if they look like this.

  • Not watching the how-to video
  • Moving the tray or your teeth during the process

  • Talking (we know - it's hard!)
