Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of prolonged chemical challenges on color stability and staining susceptibility of a silorane-based composite material when compared to methacrylate-based composites.
Methods: Cylindrical specimens (n=24) were fabricated from methacrylate (Filtek Z250, 3M ESPE; Filtek Z350XT, 3M ESPE; Master Fill, Biodinâmica) or silorane-based (Filtek P90, 3M ESPE) composite materials. Initial color was registered in a spectrophotometer. Specimens were divided in four groups and individually stored at 37°C in 0.02N citric acid, 0.02N phosphoric acid, 75% ethanol or distilled water (control) for 7, 14, 21, and 180 days, when new measurements were performed. A staining test was performed (n=12) after 21 days of chemical challenge by immersion in coffee during 3 weeks at 37°C. Color changes (¿E) were characterized using the CIEL*a*b* color system. Data were submitted to two-way analysis of variance or analysis of variance for repeated measures, and Tukey’s multiple comparison test (a= 0.05).

Results: Although significantly different (p<0.05), color changes on the methacrylate-based resins and the silorane-based material were not visually perceptible after immersion in water, citric acid, phosphoric acid or ethanol up to 21 days (¿E<3.3). After 180 days of immersion, color change was similar (¿E<3.3) amongst all investigated materials, except for the silorane when immersed in ethanol, which demonstrated visible color change (¿E=4.1±1.3). The methacrylate-based resins stored in ethanol were significantly (p<0.05) more stained by coffee (Filtek Z250 ¿E=24.1±1.1; Filtek Z350XT ¿E=24.0±2.9; Master Fill ¿E=12.8±0.6) than the ones stored in other media, while the silorane-based material demonstrated no staining (Filtek P90 ¿E=2.0±0.6), regardless of the immersion medium (p<0.05).

Conclusions: Ethanol influenced color stability of the silorane-based material and increased the staining susceptibility of the methacrylate-based resins. Storage in phosphoric acid or citric acid did not influence the color stability or staining susceptibility of the investigated materials.
