Abstract

Introduction Provisional restoration refers to a prosthesis which is designed to enhance the esthetic value, or function for a short time, following which it is replaced by using a fixed prosthesis. Color stability is very important factor to be kept in mind during selection of provisional materials in aesthetically important areas. Although there are various studies which look into the issue of stability of color of provisional restorations, the results are contradictory and confusing. This study was planned to compare the color stability of commonly used provisional restorative materials after exposing them to various kinds of discolorants.

Materials and Methods This work evaluated the effect of five common beverages, including tea, on color changes of different provisional materials: 1) Polymethyl methacrylates (DPI); 2) Bisacryl composite (ProtempTM II–3M ESPE); 3) Light polymerized composite (Revotek LC–GC). Color measurement of all specimens was compared with the original values of each specimen prior to immersion.

Results Within the limitations of this study, it was concluded that:

a) There is no difference in color stability of provisional materials.

b) Only food dye produced a clinically appreciable color change, whereas color change by cola and coffee cannot be appreciated by humans and that of tea can be appreciated only by trained eyes.
