**IMPORTANT**
I have been getting comments about whether or not using liquid nails is safe. I don't know. If you're not comfortable using it, don't use it. I used it and I'm ok, but I very rarely wear them. I would not suggest wearing them frequently. Furthermore, The liquid nails worked alright at first, but I found the teeth would fall off after a bit. I'm still trying to find a way to adhere the teeth to the retainer successfully. I have tried hot glue and super glue, neither of which worked. I will update if I find a more successful adhesive. Thank you, take care, and be safe.

Would this work with braces? Like could the nold just fit over the braces, I don't really care if I have to make it thicker, I just need a way to make Grell Sutcliff teeth for comic con.

I would advise against it :/ Maybe try asking your orthodontist?

Could I just use instamorph for this its like some of that heat moldable plastic stuff like what you're using
Faxen's avatar
As long as its non-toxic I don't see why that woulnt work

I wanna do this so much for Rin Matsuoka!

just a thought, but couldnt you something like fixodent to hold them in since they fall out?
Faxen's avatar
Not sure! The dentures themselves don't fall out of your mouth easily and I'm not sure if fixodent would permanently fuse the fake nails to the plastic.
Tirnel's avatar
oh i thought u meant the dentures were falling out of your mouth. whoops...

would long clear nails work ? it seems to be the only thing I can find D:
Faxen's avatar
yes those will work! You can always paint the back of the nails white (with non toxic paint please!)
ChibiMisfit's avatar
ok just wanted to make sure those would work and lol I would def make sure it was non toxic :)

Just a warning, on the dental distortions site it says not to let the stuff cool in your mouth..
Faxen's avatar
hm I wonder why? You're supposed to use it on your teeth with their retainers and I had no problem with it?
Zexionandbandit's avatar
these worked great! But they started to hurt like a retainer type hurt and we had to take them out, is there something we did wrong?
Faxen's avatar
well if you have a regular retainer its possible its just your teeth slightly shifting. I had braces about 6 years ago and I haent worn my retainer in years, so my teeth shift every now and then so my teeth hurt like a retainer after a few hours of wear or when I take them out. I'd say it's pretty normal.

This is probably such a silly question but I want to be super careful kdsfbd when you put the pellets in do you keep them in the bag, or do you dump them out of the bag? ;;
Faxen's avatar
it's ok :) you take the pellets out of the bag.
LuddyFeli's avatar
do you put all the pellets in at once? like does the two bags make one row of teeth and you just put em all in at once to merge together

or does each bag make one row and i do one bag at a time?
Faxen's avatar
nah don't put them in all at once, 2/3 of one bag should be enough for the top and then another 2/3 after for the bottom :)

i made mine like this only I took a nail file and roughed the front of each tooth area then applied gorrilla glue to the nail and stuck it on.
Faxen's avatar
did that work well?
