So you’ve got your Basma impression kit. Hooray!
Now, we’ll show you how to take good impressions of your teeth at home with a step by step video.

Taking your impressions is fun and simple, and takes only about 30 minutes of your time. Also, getting started is risk-free; if, after you return the impressions to us, our orthodontists determine aligners are not right for you, we’ll get you a full refund. That is our guarantee!

By now, you’ve probably opened your kit and found these inside:

  • 3 sets of dental trays
  • Dark and light putty
  • A smile spreader
  • A return box
  • A pair of gloves
  • A detailed guide

But, before you take your impressions, here’s a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Make sure nothing is missing inside your kit.
  2. Make sure you set a timer next to you.
  3. We’ve included a detailed guide on how to make good impressions. Read it carefully!
  4. Brush your teeth, wash your hands, and put on your gloves before starting.
  5. Keep a towel with you, as your saliva will likely droop when you put the trays in your mouth.
  6. When taking a photo, make sure you’re sitting in a well-lit room, and use the flash of your camera to get a good shot. Ask a friend or family member to help you if needed, or stand in front of a mirror. Watch the photo guide here.

Okay, let’s get started!


Watch the video from start to finish – and read the guide too – before taking your first impression.
