The effect of different herbal teas on the color stability of nanohybrid and bulk-fill composites
Color Stability Of Nanohybrid And Bulk Fill Composites
Keywords:color change, composite resin
Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of green tea and rosehip tea, on the color stability of nanohybrid and bulk-fill composite resins.
Methodology: A total of 60 disc-shaped samples were made from 2 types of A2 resin with nanohybrid (Tetric N Ceram, Ivoclar Vivadent, Schaan, Liechtenstein) and bulk-fill (Filtek Bulk-Fill, 3M ESPE, MN, USA) structure with the help of 10 mm diameter and 2 mm thick Teflon molds in this study. All samples were finished and polished with 4-stage (thick, medium, fine, superfine) polishing discs (Sof-lex, 3M ESPE, MN, USA) and kept in an oven at 37 °C for 24 hours. The samples, whose initial color measurements were made by spectrophotometer, were divided into subgroups for the control group and 2 different herbal teas (Green tea, Rosehip) (n=10). Color measurements were repeated, and ΔE values were calculated. Wilcoxon, Kruskal-Wallis, and Bonferroni tests were used to analyze the data (p < 0.05).
Results: There was no statistically significant difference in color change between the composite resins (p > 0.05). No significant color change was found for either the Tetric N-Ceram or Filtek Bulk-Fill composite resin samples immersed in distilled water (p > 0.05, ΔE<3.3).
Conclusion: Rosehip and green tea affect the color stability of composite resin restorations. Whereas the color change caused by green tea is at a clinically acceptable level, that stemming from rosehip tea falls within clinically unacceptable levels.
