Dental Composite Applicator

The project

Dentists often use the material composite to repair chipped teeth. However, most of such composite dispensers for dental use lack an attractive appearance. The Dutch company Compulz therefore developed the Applicator in close consultation with engineers and designers. Tests with target groups showed that dentists prefer this applicator because of its ease of use.


Dentists use dental composite to fill holes in teeth and repair chipped and broken-off teeth. This dispenser with its smart technology, functionality and ergonomic design does a perfect job and looks harmless enough to reassure the patient.

— A good example in which designers play a crucial role in creating easy-to-use products with an attractive appearance.
