This study evaluated the degree of conversion (DC%) of one experimental and different brands of composite resins light-cured by two light sources (one LED and one argon laser). The percentage of unreacted C = C was determined from the ratio of absorbance intensities of aliphatic C = C (peak at 1637 cm(-1)) against internal standards before and after curing: aromatic C-C (peak at 1610 cm(-1)) except for P90, where % C = C bonds was given for C-O-C (883 cm(-1)) and C-C (1257 cm(-1)). ANOVA and Tukey's test revealed no statistically significant difference among Z350 (67.17), Z250 (69.52) and experimental (66.61 +/- 2.03) with LED, just among them and Evolu-X (75.51) and P90 (32.05) that showed higher and lower DC%, respectively. For the argon laser, there were no differences among Z250 (70.67), Z350 (69.60), experimental (65.66) and Evolu-X (73, 37), however a significant difference was observed for P90 (36.80), which showed lowest DC%. The light sources showed similar DC%, however the main difference was observed regarding the composite resins. The lowest DC% was observed for the argon laser. P90 showed the lowest DC% for both light-curing sources. (AU)
