Objective: This study evaluated the color stability and translucence of resin cements in the fixation of ceramic veneers submitted to aging protocols. Material and Methods: Buccal faces of bovine incisors were planed up to dentin. Eighty ceramic veneers (1 mm) were prepared using two pressed ceramics (IPS e-maxPress and IPS e-maxZirpress, IvoclarVivadent). Before the initial color and translucence readouts (Vita EasyShade, VITA), the veneers were fixed with light (Variolink II, Ivoclar/Vivadent) or dual cured (Relyx U200, 3M ESPE) cements. The samples were submitted (n=10) to thermal mechanical cycling (1.200.000 cycles, 1,3Hz, 5°C/37°C/55°C); and no aging protocol (control). New color and translucence readouts were performed. The cement thickness was quantified by a double coordinate stereomicroscope (Nikon Measurescope) as a control of the study. Results: Data (3-way ANOVA, Tukey, p<0,05) showed difference (p>0.05) in the color change for both ceramics cemented with U200 with no aging protocol. In the other groups, there was no significant difference (p>0.05). There was no difference for translucence regardless ceramics, cements, or aging protocol. Thermal mechanical cycling was not significant for optical changes of the ceramics tested. Conclusions: It was concluded that the color stability and translucence of ceramics with thickness of 1mm were not influenced by the cement when submitted to thermal mechanical cycling.
