Sažetak
Under clinical conditions, the time needed for the proper light curing of luting composites or the multi-incremental buildup of a large restoration with halogen curing units is quite extensive. Due to the development of high power curing devices, such as argon lasers and plasma arc lights and, in order to decrease curing time, halogen and LED devices have developed a high intensity polymerization mode. This study compared the degree of conversion using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) of two composite materials: Tetric Ceram and Tetric EvoCeram polymerized with three polymerization modes (high, low and soft mode) of a Bluephase 16i LED curing unit and blue diode laser intensity of 50 mW on the output of the laser beam and 35 mW/cm^2 on the resin composite sample. Descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson Correlation and Tukey Post hoc tests were used for statistical analyses. The results show a higher degree of conversion for the polymerization of composite samples with all photopolymerization modes of the LED curing unit. However, there is no significant difference in the degree of conversion between the LED unit and 50-second polymerization with the blue diode laser. Tetric EvoCeram shows a lower degree of conversion regardless of the polymerization mode (or light source) used.
