PURPOSE To measure the translucency parameter of opaque-shade resin composites. The secondary purpose was to evaluate the ability of the materials to mask dark background color. METHODS CIELAB coordinates (L*, a*, b*) of three resin composites: UniFil S (UF), Palfique Estelite (PE), and Filtek A110 (FA) were determined in two shades (Opaque A3 and A3) at 1 mm and 2 mm thickness on a white backing, a backing of material itself and a black backing using a colorimeter. From the L* a* b* of 2 mm… Expand
