Some of our customers end up needing extra putty because they mess up the first time. Call it a practice run. We’re not trying to make money off the putty. It’s just much more affordable for you to order more now (with your retainer), rather than later! If you don’t use it, return it and we’ll refund your money.
ClearRetain's impression putty is a vinyl polysiloxane impression material with a very high viscosity that provides excellent dimensional accuracy and stability. The impression putty consists of two pastes, which when mixed together harden to form a base for making the dental impression. It is designed for use as the tray material for reproduction of teeth. Each order includes two containers of putty. One white and one colored.
Our impression putty has a two-year shelf life. The impression putty ingredient list is polydimethylsiloxane polymer, silicon dioxide, polymethyl hydrogen siloxane, and plasticizer pigments.
I thought that I wasn’t going to need it however I ended up using it all (you will make at least 1 mistake).
It was very easy to follow the instructions given for taking impressions but I highly recommend getting the extra putty just in case you need to take other set of impressions. They refund your money if you don’t end up using them.
I'm very happy with my retainer. Having never taken a mold of my own teeth before, I'm glad I got the extra clay. Even though my bite wasn't perfect, the retainer turned out just fine.
Took me 3 attempts to get a good impression of my teeth so the extra putty definitely was used. So glad I got it!
They answer you very well and precisely with good instructions.
