How much power does the LED use compared to a halogen light?
ClearVue LED operatory bulbs use only 5 watts in comparison to 95 watts or more depending on the light fixture. This is one of the reasons why ClearVue is the clear choice for excellence in dental lighting.
Does the ClearVue get hot like halogen lamps?
Halogen lamps are notorious for the amount of heat they generate. LED bulbs in general don't produce anywhere near the amount of heat as halogens, but they still produce some heat. The ClearVue will get hot after running for long periods. Before touching the light or removing the ClearVue bulb, please allow at least 5 minutes for the bulb to cool.
Is the light as bright as a halogen?
Yes, both halogen bulbs and ClearVue LED bulbs emit 25,000 Lux. They are a direct comparison in brightness. LEDs however provide better color accuracy for a crisp and clear view.
Does this LED put out the same light as an LED dental light?
Yes, ClearVue bulbs have been engineered to convert and emit light that is the same as if you purchased a new LED fixture.
How long will the light last?
ClearVue has a lifespan up to 15 years.
What color is the light?
ClearVue is a white light with a blue accent. It is 90% quality of daylight.
Will the light from the LED change over time?
No, ClearVue LEDs emit the same light on day 6000 as it does on day 1.
How long is the light guaranteed?
ClearVue Led bulbs come with a 5 year limited warranty.
Do I have to change anything with my light fixture to install the LED replacement light?
No, ClearVue is true plug-and-play. Simply open the fixture, remove the halogen bulb, install a ClearVue bulb in its place and close the fixture cover.
Which light, LED or halogen, is better to assess true tooth color?
Halogen color accuracy starts pretty close to LEDs however degrades quickly leaving halogen color accuracy uncertain. ClearVue LED color accuracy is true from day one until day 6000.
The spot size and dimensions seem different. Can anything be done about that?
Most fixtures have a focusing knob on the back of the reflector. Turning this knob will position the ClearVue differently within the reflector and change the dimensions of the light spot. Aim the light at the wall, and make adjustments to the focusing knob until the spot size is how you like it.
Why does my light seem too bright or not as bright as my halogen bulb did?
Most dental chair models have the ability to adjust the intensity of light. If you previously kept your lights on medium intensity you may need to adjust your fixture to either a higher or lower setting to experience the same intensity as previously experienced.
How do I determine which ClearVue lamp is appropriate for my light?
It will be necessary to identify which model of light you have. This can usually be found on a large white or silver label at the base of the light's armature where it attaches to the chair/wall/ceiling mast. Review the models of ClearVue lamps in the compatibility section of this product page and look for the model number of your light.
