Lack of Impression Detail
Visual Appearance: Muted detail reproduction.
Result: Crowns may be too tight, or loose, and not fit correctly.
Impression material stored at elevated temperature.
Impression material stored at too low a temperature (prolongs the setting reactions, changes viscosity and requires exceptionally high extrusion forces for automix materials).
Exceeding the working time.
Incorrect storage conditions of the final impression affects surface quality (detail reproduction) and dimensional stability.
