OBJECTIVES Recently it has been pointed out that light-initiated prepolymerization at low intensity followed by a post-light-cure at full intensity ('softstart-polymerization') may lead to light-cured composite fillings with improved marginal adaptation. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of this procedure with different initial cure conditions on physical material properties like flexural modulus, flexural strength and Vickers microhardness of different composites.
