Use the PointCure lens for tacking all-porcelain veneers and crowns, bonding endodontic fiber posts, and diagnostic transillumination of teeth. Transillumination helps in detecting fractures, cracks, or defects in teeth by illuminating the teeth from the lingual, making shadows observable. We recommend using VALO’s Standard Power mode during this procedure to take advantage of the full 20 seconds of illumination.
For tack curing veneers, the high power mode with a 1-second timing interval allows you to cure the center of a veneer or crown then clean up the uncured excess around the margins. After cleaning the margins, cure the restoration using the full-sized curing lens. For all-porcelain crowns, place the curing light on the occlusal surface and cure using the high power mode for at least 2 seconds. For posts that transmit light, insert the post into the canal prefilled with cement, then position the lens on the VALO and place directly on top of the post and direct the light into and through the post. We recommend you cure through the post for 20 seconds using the standard power mode. If you are using an opaque or dark-colored cement, a second curing cycle may be required.
TransLume Lenses (Green and Orange)
The green lens aids in locating and demonstrating cracks and subsurface differences. The penetrating ability of the orange lens shows the obstruction to light caused by posts or internal bubbles.
ProxiCure Ball Lenses
ProxiCure Ball lenses facilitate the building of convex proximal contacts. The imprint is easily filled with composite in a second step. Push the ProxiCure Ball lens against the interproximal wall of the band; do not submerge in composite.
Black Light Lens
The Black Light lens is used to detect fluorescent particles in resins for easy differentiation from natural enamel.
The EndoGuide Lens is ideal for use in apical retrofills and other narrow preparations.
The mounting bracket can be used for VALO and VALO Cordless. It mounts to any surface.
