We are trying to make bleaching trays with plaster

Customer Question
impressions and a thermoforming machine...
We are trying to make bleaching trays with plaster impressions and a thermoforming machine. When we are making the trays on the machine, the plaster is discolouring the plastic trays. We are using victor dental plaster with a 1:2 ratio of water to plaster, and 0.8mm thick trays. How do we stop the trays from discolouring?

One of two things. Since you already have the plaster, try to finish what you are doing with the plaster, but let it totally harden for an hour or so. Then, put a light coat over the teeth on the plaster of vaseline, then attempt to use the trays, and don't overheat them. You may be overheating them...?

If the above does not work, but it hopefully will work. Try this as a second choice - Use Dental stone, as opposed to plaster. Stone is harder, and will not tend to discolor. You can use golden brown, blue, green or white stone, they should all work fine, and I've personally never had them leave any color or residue behind. I'm sure one, if not both of the above techniques will work for you...

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
