How it works
Most modern dental composites and resin adhesives are fluorescent due to its content of fluorophores. Under certain wavelengths of illumination (UV-A 395 to 400nm), these materials can be distinguished from tooth tissue. Therefore, significantly reducing risk of iatrogenic tooth damage when they need to be removed. The K-Lite is a groundbreaking dental device that allows in any dental discipline its appropriate indication

"The K-Lite is this clever lightweight instrument you can use with such great ease, that is why I love it. Its small tip makes it very agile and easy to use in all areas of the mouth.The Violet Mode helps me to diagnose active caries. The White-Light Mode is extremely useful to visualize cracks and inter-proximal caries"

"Dentists tend to buy a large number of things that we rarely use, however, this is a tool that far from being trendy, is really useful (...) I used to think during my practices that I was removing all excess residual material, nowadays I have realized I wasn't! I was unable to fully see it, K-lite has made it visible"

Why is K-lite an Eco-Friendly Device?
The technology inside uses premium semiconductor integrated circuits, achieving high accuracy (<1%) of both intensity and wavelength (color) of the two LEDs independently. In addition, it offers an embedded microprocessor for controlling the soft-start feature, increasing dramatically the lifetime of the two AAA batteries and achieving a power efficiency (of above 95%) when operated in normal conditions. Moreover, K-Lite features a smart timing auto-stop (after 10 s and 30 s respectively) which further increases its energy efficiency. Hence, the K-Lite product is practical, easy to use, and green for the environment. These features confer more flexibility and sustainability in the dentistry industry

The violet light is of the UVA type in an intensity controlled by a mini software to imitate the human eye blink and protect us from the reflection of residual UV light on the dental surface. Each 10-second blink is used to: a) Indicate visual use time. b) Prevent heating of the LED that could cause damage due to its proximity to the pulp. and c) Save battery consumption
