Angry Bathroom sink does not drain properly

New bathroom countertop installed on Sat with new sink. Sink appears to have a totally flat bottom, hence, large collection of water and little draining leaving a pool. Hubby already set sink in. First, What is the best way to remove the silicone without chipping the sink, and Second, should we shim under the front to tilt the sink back so the water will drain? Please feel free to email me privately. I really need to get this done ASAP. Thanks for all assistance.

It may be good to check that the surface into which the sink is mounted is level. If, it may not drain, despite its design. It will be easier to shim the cabinet a tad than to reseat the sink. This is especially true if the sink is set in silicone. It is practically impossible to remove all traces of silicone and nothing will stick to silicone, so you would not be able re-seat the sink after removing it.

Hope this helps.
