Abstract: Many restorative materials are claimed by their manufacturers to match the Vita shade guide. To verify this claim, 40 dental personnel were asked to color match five different restorative materials to their respective Vita shade tabs according to a 5-point scale (1 = very poor color match; 5 = excellent color match). Three shades were chosen for each restorative material (a mid-Value shade as well as the highest Value shade and the lowest Value shade present in each system). Pooled scores indicated that the resin composite materials had significantly better overall shade match than did the other materials evaluated and that one resin-modified glass-ionomer cement had significantly better shade match than did the "compomer" and another resin-modified glass-ionomer cement. Only 11% of the scores for all material and shade combinations were given a good or excellent rating (score greater than 3). Shade match to the Vita shade guide was not material dependent but tended to differ among the different Value shades evaluated.
