No Stress Impress Makes Home Dental Impressions Easy

Share this article

Direct to consumer dental products have been around for the past two decades with many online retailers, typically a dental laboratory, manufacturing and supplying a range of dental products via a home self-impression kit.

The process has been quite simple: place your order online, receive your home impression kit, take your dental impression and send it back to the lab for your custom-made dental appliance to be manufactured.

A convenient and more cost-effective method of purchasing a custom-made dental appliance such as a mouthguard, retainer, or whitening tray.

In 2014 the direct-to-consumer (DTC) dental market exploded when Invisalign patents expired. This situation opened the door for companies like Smile Direct Club to enter the aligner market with a direct-to-consumer offering rivaling Invisalign in price and convenience.

The driver? Simple the size of the opportunity! According to Fortune Business Insights, the global cosmetic dentistry market size was valued at USD 23.02 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach a whopping USD 43.06 billion by 2026.

Finally an innovative and easy to use impression kit

The traditional self-impression kit consists of silicone putty and disposable impression trays.

The process entails mixing the putty, rolling it into a sausage shape, and inserting correctly into the tray all under strict time constraints before you must centrally align your teeth into the putty ensuring you don’t catch the tray and then sink your teeth through the putty before leaving in the mouth for a set time, usually 3-4 minutes.

For many years we used this traditional method at Instasmile. The outcome; is a very difficult process for the general public to get right. Even some dentists struggle to provide a good impression!

For the past 12 months, Instasmile has been testing a new impression system; one that is easier to use, more accurate than most putty, and allows multiple attempts to get a good impression.

This System is called No Stress Impress™; an FDA-approved and patented preloaded tray developed by Dentists that removes the variables of mixing and inserting with traditional silicone putty.

It also comes with a premade channel to align your teeth correctly into the tray. Why not watch our impression video HERE to see just how easy the process is.

Multiple attempts led to over a 75% first-time pass rate

Not only do the pre-loaded trays remove the need to mix and insert the putty correctly into the tray; the main advantage of No Stress Impress™ is that you have multiple attempts to get a perfect impression.

If you make a mistake don’t worry you can simply re-boil and go again. Watch our reboil video HERE just to see how easy it is! 


“I originally purchased my veneers from a competitor and had to purchase 3 replacement impression kits as my impressions kept failing. In the end, I gave up and decided to try Instasmile. The No Stress Impression system is amazing and so much easier to do. My veneers fit perfectly and look amazing! Go Instasmile xxxx”
