Comparative efficiency of plasma and halogen light sources on composite micro-hardness in different curing conditions

Published inDental materials, vol. 19, no. 6, p. 493-500
Publication date2003
Abstract

Recent developments have led to the introduction of high power curing lights, which are claimed to greatly reduce the total curing time. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a plasma-curing device (Apollo 95 E) and a halogen device (Heliolux DLX), in different curing conditions.
