Objectives: Vital tooth bleaching with peroxide is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in dentistry and can be accomplished using a variety of methods or regimens. Recently, new generation of tooth color restorative materials were introduced to market. The purpose of this in vitro study was to determine the gloss changes of three different tooth color restorative materials: Flowable composite (Filtek Flow/3 M), packable composite (Filtek P60/3 M) and ormocer (Definite/DEGUSSA) after two different bleaching regimens (Vivastyte/VIVADENT) and (Crest Professional Whitestrips/PROCTER and GAMBLE).
