Abstract: Modern composites have good aesthetic prop-erties and acceptable mechanical strength properties, comparable with the properties of porcelain and amalgam and exceeding the performance of glass ionomers [1, 2]. However, free radical polymeriz-ation, which provides the curing process of the composite, leads to volumetric shrinkage of the material, which is 2 – 5.63% . The inclusion of an appropriate amount of antimicrobial additives (AMA) can endow filling materials with antibacterial prop-erties without significantly affecting their strength properties [4, 5]. This research was an evaluation of chlorhexidine effect incorporated into the composite material Restaurin as antimicrobial additives on the color stability of the composite filling material.
