The aim of this investigation was to improve the quality of the cured composite resin using the pulsed laser, thus avoiding disadvantages of previously used methods. The light source consisted of the pump excimer laser (Lambda Physik LPX 100) and the dye laser (Lambda Physik 3000). It is expected that pulsed laser polymerization could improve the conversion rate, decrease a temperature rise in the sample, allowing the `cooling' of the material and reduce polymerization shrinkage.
