  • Accurate impression with any type of impression material are acceptable.
  • Impressions must adequately reflect all relevant anatomy.
  • Impression material must not be separating from the impression tray.
  • Consider pouring your models right away if your impressions are moisture, temperature or time sensitive.
  • Impressions sensitive to moisture content should be wrapped in a damp paper towel and placed in a sealed plastic bag if models are not poured immediately.
  • Only metal impression trays and those with PVS impression material will be returned.


  • Plaster or stone models are acceptable. Generally, the durability of stone (for appliances) is preferred.
  • Models should be reasonably trimmed, yet sufficiently thick for strength considerations.
  • No horseshoe-shaped models. Models should have a base of at least 7mm in the thinnnest area.
  • Bases will be added as necessary (for an additional fee) to models without bases or those lacking adequate base thickness or strength.
