A 20-year-old female asked:

Hi doctors; what is the effect of light cure on resin composites?

Sets up the material: The light curing starts the process by which the composite material cures (or sets up and hardens). This enables the dentist to sculpt and shape the material to "mold" to your tooth in the shape and position needed to repair and restore the tooth back to form and function.
