Place your composites with confidence


Nova’s Titanium Nitride Instruments are a superb range of composite placement, sculpting and contouring instruments that have been developed to markedly reduce resin stickiness making composite application far easier and quicker. The nitride coating provides a virtually non-stick and non-scratch surface meaning that the composite will stay exactly where you place it without pulling away from the tooth surface.

The thin and exceptional flexibility of these instruments make composite contouring and characterisation readily achievable. To allow for personal preference, each pattern is available in a choice of 3 handles – solid round, hollow round or solid octagonal. All are lightweight and perfectly balanced to help prevent hand fatigue.

As with the range of Nova Instruments, Titanium Nitride Instruments are made in the UK by skilled craftsmen to exceptionally high standards at economical prices.

Whatever your choice of pattern, Nova Instruments are sure to have the perfect composite placement instrument for you.

Quality and value

Nova Instruments will make your working day more pleasurable. Constructed from the finest quality stainless steel by experienced precision engineers, Nova instruments are made to exacting standards.
