The use of light sources is a constant in dental practice. Many technical and instrumental materials base their properties on applying light at intensities superior to healthy ones for our ocular organ. 5 out of 10 work absences in the health sector is due to visual pathology. One of the main consequences of the technological advance achieved and the engineering of biomaterials was the achievement of lighting parameters that allow us to reduce time, techniques and improve the quality of our

Thus, with the light of polymerizing in dentistry, the great disadvantages of the 30s and 60s on acrylic resins and their contraction in the cavitary walls were solved, thus heading towards one of the main milestones of contemporary dentistry, as were the discoveries of Bouncore and Bowen. For this and more, we must bear in mind the risk of exposure to which the health population, and especially the dental one, are exposed by routinely using light sources that exceed intensity and time of exposure to normal or healthy or at least, for which our eye has intrinsic defense methods.
