The Elipar DeepCure-S LED curing light has optimized optics for a deep, uniform cure even when perfect light positioning is difficult. The Elipar DeepCure-S provides a more collimated and uniform beam as well as better light uniformity and intensity distribution at clinically relevant distances. These features help to compensate for slight movements, consistently allowing the light to provide a higher depth of cure. The Elipar DeepCure-S is designed with an optimal angle and height, providing comfort and accessibility for both the patient’s and practitioner’s benefit. The housing of the curing light is seamless, ventless stainless steel with a glass ceramic coating. The charging base contains a built-in intensity meter, and the light is fan free for quiet operation. The Elipar DeepCure-S operates at a wavelength of 430-480 nm and an intensity of 1,470 mW/cm2. Pre-set cure times are: 5, 10, 15, and 20 seconds, one-second tack cure, and continuous. The 10 mm light guide is autoclavable. Elipar DeepCure-S was evaluated by 13 consultants in 457 uses. This light curing unit received a 96% clinical rating.
Elipar DeepCure-S is an excellent curing light for restorative procedures. The design is simple with activation and setting buttons separated to avoid confusion during use. The high output gives confidence of a complete cure, and the tack-curing feature gives a quick burst of light to gel resin cements. While the metal housing adds some weight to the unit, it gives a feeling of sturdiness and is smooth and easy to disinfect.
The high output of Elipar DeepCure-S provides a quick cure, but can warm the teeth and gingival tissues. Curing distances are influenced by access, matrix position and depth of material. Light output that addresses these issues enhances patient care by promoting properly cured restorations.
