  • Publication number: 20090068613
    Abstract: A portable color corrected light for the correct matching of tooth shades and acceleration of tooth whitening has been developed. In order to accurately match the tint and hue (true color) of teeth, the device provides 5500 to 6500 Kelvin, ambient-independent light with the ability to block or overwhelm ambient light to get a precise “color” reading of that tooth. The same light can accelerate the tooth whitening process with the addition of photo-accelerators to increase the decomposition of H2O2 or other peroxide whitening material. In addition, the same light can also serve as a dental operatory light which provides a closer to daylight illumination than conventional halogen dental lights.

  • Patent number: 6102696
    Abstract: A self contained light source for curing light initiated resins used to coat teeth as veneers and fill cavities and chips in teeth in aesthetic or restorative procedures. The source includes an elongated container holding a battery and electronic compartment at one end and a light emitting window at the other. A plurality of closely space light emitters, typically light emitting diodes or laser diodes, are arrayed to direct light to a common focal point. The light is directed out of the container toward a tooth bearing the resin to be cured to a hard, stable state. The light emitters produce light in a region of the spectrum to which the resin curing initiators is sensitive, typically blue light. The light emitters are preferably mounted on concave edged printed circuit so that they are all oriented inwardly toward the focal point. Microlenses may be used with each light emitter to further concentrate light toward the focal point.
