The berry scent of SplashMax was a hit with patients and the dental staff. The handling properties were rated very good as long as users worked swiftly with the half-time set material. The heavy (purple) and lite (green) had good color contrast, and while the colors are dark, margins are easy to read. Impressions can be scanned in the dental lab after being coated with powder. Scanning revealed small bubbles or porosities in some impressions, but it did not seem to affect the fit of the restorations. Overall SplashMax produced very good results in taking crown and bridge impressions.
