A new generation of curing lights
Intelligent LED curing light technology brings more comfort, efficiency and reliability to the dental practice.
Bluephase PowerCure is the smartest Bluephase ever seen. The new high-performance LED curing light combines reliability with short exposure times of only three seconds if used in conjunction with the 3s PowerCure product system.
The Bluephase PowerCure comes with an automatic curing assistant that “keeps an eye on the operator”: It detects accidental movement of the curing light and recognizes the risk that this may present to the reliability of the curing procedure. If the restoration is at risk of not being cured adequately, the light alerts the operator of the improper use by vibrating and automatically extends the exposure time. If the curing light is being shifted too far away from the original position, the Bluephase PowerCure will automatically interrupt the exposure cycle so that it can be repeated correctly. Intelligent technology is required to make this possible. In the case of Bluephase PowerCure, this technology is called Polyvision. Its advantages are obvious: professionals who are looking for reliability, ease of operation and time savings will get what they are looking for with the Bluephase PowerCure.
Freely selectable light intensities provide optimum curing results
The curing performance is affected by the position of the curing light, but not only, the light intensity emitted by the light also has a determining effect on the quality of the restoration and the depth of cure. The new Bluephase PowerCure features three different curing programs that can be freely selected to match the needs of a variety of situations: In addition to the 1,200 mW/cm2 high power mode, it offers a turbo mode and a 3s mode. In the turbo mode, the light produces a light intensity of 2,000 mW/cm2 and this mode is therefore especially suited for polymerizing luting materials in indirect restorations. In the 3s mode, Bluephase PowerCure emits a light intensity of 3,000 mW/cm2, allowing the exposure time to be reduced to three seconds when light-curing direct Class I and II restorations from the occlusal surface in permanent teeth. With the exposure times being as short as this, the risk of errors occurring during the light-curing step is additionally lowered. Three-second exposure times can be applied if Bluephase PowerCure is used in combination with the products of the 3s PowerCure product system.
A well-designed product system
The innovative 3s PowerCure product system comprises, alongside the new Bluephase PowerCure, the sculptable Tetric PowerFill composite, the flowable Tetric PowerFlow and the Adhese Universal dental adhesive. Both restorative composites can be applied in increments of up to 4 mm and significantly reduce the number of working steps required to complete a restoration, enabling dental professionals to increase their everyday efficiency even further.
