Successful photo-curing of dental composites depends on many factors including: the light transmission characteristics of the composition, the light source intensity, spectral output and exposure time. Recently, high intensity LED lights have entered the clinical world with the “hopeful promise” of providing faster, deeper curing to reduce steps and save time. Concurrently, several bulk-curing composites with reduced shrinkage stress have also been introduced to reduce the number of increments during placement.
