In this study, we evaluated in vitro the staining susceptibility of an infiltration resin (Icon, DMG, Hamburg, Germany) and compared it with several marketed bonding systems. Fifty 1-mm-thick disk-shaped specimens were prepared for Icon and for each bonding material. Initial specimen color was assessed by a spectrophotometer. Specimens in each group were then randomly divided into five sub-groups and stored in an incubator at 37˚C in the dark for 60 days. Groups 4 and 5 were used as negative controls by being stored dry and in tap water respectively. Test groups were stored in (1) coffee, (2) tea, or (3) red wine. After 60 days of storage, new spectrophotometric measurements were performed and dE (color difference) was calculated to determine color change. Icon showed higher staining susceptibility. The clinician should be aware of the staining potential of infiltration resins over time.
