Purpose: The effect of the aging process on color stability of light-cure, dual-cure, and self-cure resin cements used for luting laminate veneers was investigated in this study. Materials and Methods: Dyract Cem (self cure), Twinlook (dual cure), and En Force (light cure) cements, 0.30 mm thick, were polymerized on laminate veneers that were 13 mm in diameter and 0.50 mm thick in an A2 shade. Five specimens were made for each material. The specimens were subjected to an accelerated aging process in a Weather-Ometer for 900 hours. Spectrophotometric analyses were made after 300, 600, and 900 hours of accelerated aging time. Overall color difference (DE*ab) was determined using the CIE-LAB system for measuring small color differences. Chroma changes (DC*ab) and hue differences (DH*ab) were also determined. DE*ab, DC*ab, and DH*ab were analyzed by one-way analysis of variance, t test for dependent samples, and Tukey honestly significant difference (HSD) tests. Results: DE*ab values determined for the materials in this study varied in the acceptable range of 1.9 to 2.7. Different aging times caused no significant differences in DE*ab, DC*ab, or DH*ab values for any of the materials. There were no significant differences in the amount of overall color change among the 3 resin cements at the same aging period. Twinlook material showed the greatest chroma change at each aging time. The greatest hue change was determined for Dyract Cem material. Conclusion: The light-cure resin cement tested can be proposed as a suitable material for luting laminate veneers, but long-term clinical studies are necessary to verify these experimental findings.
