German term or phrase: lichthärtend
From a set of instructions for gluing on a decorative tooth. (was es nicht alles gibt!) Klebefluid methacrylatbasis, UV/lichthärtend. I know that Lichthart is lightfast, stable to light. But from what I can see lichthärtend means the opposite - that is gets hard when exposed to light.

UV curing
Explanation:
trying google with dentistry+uv+curing I got on the first page
3 x UV-curing
4 x UV curing

One example: in the same document, as quoted below:
. ultraviolet technologies
(eg. curing, ...,)
. UV-curing in dentistry

I would drop the light, it's superfluous. I found only one URL with 'curing with UV light'.

Explanation:
So THAT'S what the dentist did to my filling! With that transparent tube that looks like a flashlight... he never quite explained it, though.

light-cured


Explanation:
The substance hardens upon exposure to UV light. I have also seen the adjective 'light-hardening', but light-cured appears more frequently.
