    Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is introducing a line of premium accessories for VALO™ Grand curing lights. The addition of these six new lenses allows clinicians to use their VALO Grand light in increasingly nuanced ways to provide optimal care for their patients.

    • PointCure™ lens: creates a 2.5 mm diameter curing area to aid in position and tack curing
    • ProxiCure™ ball lens: holds matrix against contact while curing composite for Class II restorations

    Diagnostic Lenses:

    • Interproximal lens: provides a focused 1 mm white light to help view interproximal caries
    • TransLume™ lens: aids in detection of cracks and defects in a tooth or prostheses
    • Black Light lens: fluoresces chemicals in various dental materials
    • White Light lens: provides a pure natural light for accurate shade matching

    About VALO Grand Curing Lights


    VALO Grand curing lights use a custom, multi-wavelength light emitting diode (LED) for producing high intensity light at 385–515 nm through an optimally collimated beam capable of polymerizing all lightcured dental materials including porcelain and underlying resin cements. The VALO Grand light features a 12 mm lens and its extremely durable, slim, ergonomic shape allows unprecedented access to all restoration sites.
