Made a tips and tricks video for stuff I had left out of my tutorial. These could help you -

Full tutorial here - kind of old. Could use a revamp.

I cringed at the suggestion to use scissors to scrape out the old silicone/pad residue.


I just knaw it out with my teefs

0 out of 5 dentists surveyed recommended it

Ever try this one?

To me is the best silicone ever. Smooth response and last long.

It’s not very self leveling so I don’t really like it.

Whenever I’ve tried flowable silicone, they always fall out or break. Any suggestions?

(G2 Jake) #12

Clean the response grove. Make sure there’s no bubbles.

Is there some magic amount of time you need to wait for the silicone to dry? I typically wait around 12-18 hours.

(G2 Jake) #14

24 minimum for heavy use. 48 if you want go crazy. I do testing after 12 but not a lot of play.

To me red one is the best ever. You just have to use it in the right way.
P.S. It’s ready in 20 minutes at 20° Celsius
