The influence of the layer thickness and composite shade on the final color of Ceram.X composites (Dentsply Sirona) was tested, selecting five intermediatetranslucency Ceram.X Universal shades, three high-translucency Ceram.X Duo “enamel” shades, and four low-translucency Ceram.X Duo “dentin” shades. Using cylindrical molds, 850 specimens were obtained, representing the whole array of possible Universal single specimens (in seven thicknesses, ranging from 1.0 to 4.0 mm in 0.5-mm increments) and Duo combinations. The CIELAB coordinates of each specimen were determined with a spectrophotometer. Different thicknesses and composites were compared with Clark’s ΔE. The difference in color among specimens of different thicknesses was materialdependent. The thickness and shade of the composite markedly affected the color yield of the Ceram.X system. For each shade of the Universal systems, only one Duo enamel-dentin combination corresponded.
