Direction to Use

1. Preparation of the silicone mold (indirect)

  • Before sawing the model, build a mold by creating a bank around all parts of the model to be masked, using addition or condensation curing putty (e.g. blue eco or compact lab putty) (Fig. 1). An existing impression, if made of silicone, can also be used as a bank after separating it from its tray. Be sure to remove any undesired protrusions from areas outside of the mask area on the bank to later allow better realignment on the model.

2. Preparation of the model

  • Grind away a layer of material in those areas to be modelled in Esthetic Mask (Fig. 2). Be sure to remove enough material so as to allow sufficient mask thickness. Stumps can be sawed and worked on either before or after mask preparation; if done before mask preparation, be sure to block-out saw lines.

3. Preparing silicone mold for assembly

  • Cut several injection holes into the silicone mold (from the palatinal resp. lingual side). Then, drill air vents into the mold with a rose-head burr, placing them at the highest points of the desired mask (Fig. 3). Clean silicone mold and coat with separating liquid. Let dry for 30 seconds, then remount the mold onto the model, check to ensure satisfactory fit, and fasten.

4. Fabrication by direct method

  • Mark the edge of the gingival areas for the impression with soft wax or similar. Then insulate this area by spraying lightly with silicone Separating Agent. Drying time 30 sec. Separating Agent (separating liquid) is suitable for A- and C-silicones and polyether impression material. Please note by the application of Esthetic Mask: Inject directly around the impression or transfer posts and leave the tip of the mixer in the material during dispensing (Fig. 7). Dispense with steady pressure. Ensure that the Esthetic Mask has the desired dimensions. Continue model fabrication only after the Esthetic Mask has set completely. Any separating medium residues on the laboratory posts can be removed with isopropyl alcohol. Insulation of the mask against plaster or resins is not necessary.

5. Mixing and casting

  • Extrude equal lengths of base material and catalyst onto a glass plate or mixing pad (Fig. 4) and quickly homogenise with a spatula (30 sec.). An even, bubble-free mixture is best attained by repeatedly spreading the material out on the mixing pad and scraping it off again with the spatula. Holding the disposable syringe at an angle, fill with material while jiggling (Fig. 5), insert plunger at back of syringe and quickly fill mold (Fig. 6). Check to make sure air vents are partially filled with silicone; this indicates adequate filling. Esthetic Mask will set in 8 - 10 minutes and can then be removed from the mold (Fig. 8).

6. Trimming and finishing

  • When the mask has been fabricated on the model, remove the mould carefully from the model, trim any casting residues from the air vents with a scalpel and remove the mask. Remove any flash with a scalpel or sharp scissors. Further processing of the removed mask is possible with suitable rotating tools (Molloplast® cutters, grinding sleeves with 15,000 - 25,000 r.p.m., tungsten carbide drills and arbors).
