like a pro
We know you’re excited you try it out on your own and by all means you can as it’s extremely easy and we too will be there to guide you at every step of the way via video consultation. If you’re on our website, we already know you’re a perfectionist and keep that in mind, we recommend using the kit under the virtual supervision of toothsi pro via a video consultation for best results.
Before you start, remember to:
Clean your hands and mouth. Choose an impression tray that fits right on your teeth. And wear gloves.
Take one set of white and blue putty. Mix them well for approx 20 seconds.
Roll it in a cylindrical shape and place it in the impression tray evenly.
Place the impression tray in your mouth to make an impression.(Put pressure with your thumbs as needed.) And let it dry.
Repeat the same procedure with upper and lower teeth.
It’s as easy as you count 1-2-3!
You can follow the instructions shown in this video we made with a lot of love! Send us the impressions once ready and we’ll take it from there. We’re waiting!
common mistakes people make while taking impressions
Taking your teeth impression at home is a fairly simple process and a toothsi expert can make it even more easier by virtually supervising you during the entire process via video consultation.
Missing gum line
Your gum line is very important to us. While pressing the tray, make sure your teeth gently touches the tray to get the perfect gum line.
Improper putty mixture
Keep mixing the white and coloured putties until it looks like one solid colour. Take your time and have a little fun!
First impressions matter! So try to be as still as possible while taking the impression for the best results.
Uneven pressure given
A big no-no! Apply firm and even pressure while pushing the tray and also keep the tray very, very still.
Yes, absolutely! Once your impression kit is delivered, our team will get in touch with you to schedule a video consultation call with an expert. They will guide you on how to take the impressions correctly. Once done, we will arrange a reverse pick-up to collect the kit and send it to our team who’ll design your smile makeover plan based on the impressions.
Mistakes happen, and we understand. If the impressions are not suitable for printing the aligners, our team will get in touch with you to send across a new impression kit. We also provide an extra set of putties in the impression kit for trials before you can take the final impression.
Worry not! It’s absolutely okay if both your attempts go wrong. You can order a new impression kit and get ready to send us your best impressions again.
Fret not! Once we have your impressions, toothsi pro will analyse and assess whether you should go for the aligners or not. Only if they are a good option for you, we’ll forward you a smile makeover plan. You can go through the plan and then take a call.
Half the battle is already won! You have already done your part and we’ll take it from here :)
Once we receive your impressions, our pros will assess if you’ve made a good impression! (no pun intended) Once the assessment is done, we’ll work on your smile makeover plan and send it across within 15 business days.
We recommend you to not consume water during the process.
