Creating your grill takes time. After taking or receiving your dental impression I strive to finish your grill within 3-4 weeks, but it can be later if you want customizations/gems/diamonds/etc. I will let you know when it’s finished, so we can plan a date for the final fitting and then the grill is yours!
Please note: your grill will not snap onto your teeth, because that can harm your teeth. You will need to “glue” the grill with denture glue (I recommend Fixodent, available at most drug stores like Kruidvat, Etos, Die Grenze, etc.).
Payments for grillz will be done in my studio by payment request (QR code).
Payments at my studio will be done 50% in advance on the first appointment and the other 50% when you’re picking up the grill. After the first payment it’s not possible to change your order. If you change your mind or want to cancel the order it’s not possible to get a refund because I’ve already started the making process. Online purchases always need to be paid fully in advance.
Not living in The Netherlands? Then you can order a mould kit for €12,50 excluding (international) shipping by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can use any kit, but I recommend using mine, because it’s a good and cheap option.
The steps you need to take to order a mould kit:
For a good dental mould, please follow these instructions carefully. Read them all through before you start, because you have to be quick so the putty doesn’t get activated too soon:
1. Make sure your teeth are brushed and clean for the best result
2. Put on gloves
3. Grab the dental impression tray(s)
4. Mix 1x green + 1x white impression putty for max. 30 sec. until evenly light green (no white spots)
5. Roll quickly into a ball and then into a thick cylinder shape, without creating folds
6. Press the cylinder shape softly into the tray, make sure the putty has no folds in it (!) and is evened out
7. Push the tray firmly up/down onto your teeth (with your thumbs/fingers) in one move, until it can’t be pressed any further. If it’s on your teeth, DON’T wiggle or move it until fully hardened (because then the final grill piece won’t fit onto your teeth anymore). Make sure your teeth are fully covered with the putty and do not scrape the tray with your teeth, only put your teeth into the putty.
8. Leave in for 2,5 minutes (02:30). Don’t bite on the tray.
9. Remove by pulling it down gently, don’t wiggle it left to right – only softly front to back if necessary!
10. Still struggling? Click HERE to watch a video (00:41 until 11:17) about taking a dental impression yourself. Or contact me.
Note: taking a dental impression yourself is not easy and your own responsibility. It can go wrong, so please come to my studio to let me do it.
Incorrectly done. Customer didn’t push the tray up onto their teeth in one smooth move. They moved it too much. You can see the putty is cracked and the teeth aren’t defined enough. You can also see the (white) tray at the front, because the teeth were scraped onto it. Avoid this.
Correctly done. All teeth are well defined and the gum lines are visible. Your impression should look something like this!
