Penn Composite Stent™

A revolutionary injectable, direct composite veneer process developed by renowned Australian dentist and author, Dr David Penn, using traditional direct bonding with flowable resins injected within a customised dental stent to create the desired aesthetics.


Study models are evaluated for the most desirably-shaped teeth for each case and a diagnostic wax-up is provided for the dentist prior to stent fabrication. Once the teeth are prepared, the Penn Composite Stent™ is placed in-situ and resin is injected and cured. A fast and effective method, when the stent is removed, the resin veneers are trimmed and polished.
