A Mold of your teeth is required to manufacture a custom grill. The mold kit is good for either top 8 to 10 teeth or bottom 8 to 10 teeth. The kit comes with enough material to make one mold selected at purchase and 1 extra set of putty in case you mess up..
The only way we can precisely make gold caps is by you taking an exact impression of your teeth. You will receive the mold kit by mail with all the easy step by step instructions on how to use it. If you already have a mold and prefer to send us that mold instead of making a new one, you can do so.
Mix the two putties together at a fast pace for 30 seconds until you have a uniform color.
*NOTE: Putty gets hard within 1 minute*
Next, roll the mold like a ‘sausage link’ and place the mold into the mouth piece and make sure it’s even inside the mouth piece and not overflowing the tray (the putty will overflow when you press with your teeth). If you are going to do only 6 teeth then place appropriate amount on the tray.
Next open your mouth as wide as you can and put the mouthpiece in until your teeth are right in the MIDDLE OF THE MOUTHPIECE WITHOUT BEING TOO CLOSE TO THE WALLS OF THE TRAY and push straight up (FOR TOP GRILLS) or straight down (FOR BOTTOM GRILLS) Using a mirror can help. Use your fingers to FIRMLY APPLY PRESSURE to the tray for 1:30-1:45 minutes (DO NOT MOVE OR TALK). Make sure the mix covers your teeth, Gums and that your lip is completely over the tray. Your impression must have a good visible gum line (where your teeth meet your gum).
After 1:30-1:45 minutes, PULL DOWN FOR TOP SET AND PULL UP FOR BOTTOM SET. You can very lightly wiggle the tray to help remove from mouth. *Leave putty in tray*
