Effect of the light source on the marginal adaptation of composite fillings

Deutsche Zahnarztliche Zeitschrift 46(2): 132-134
Effect of the light source on the marginal adaptation of composite fillings
The marginal situation of class I restorations is determined by the intensity of the light used for curing. In all composites the use of an intensive light-source (Osram HBO 100) leads to marginal gaps. This effect was demonstrated in three composites cured with light sources that are commonly used in practice.
