Background: Polishing of dental composite restorations to achieve a highly smooth and reflective surface not only enhances esthetics but also their color stability and improves resistance to staining. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of beverages on the color stability of nanoceramic composites polished using different techniques. Methods: 80 samples of ceram. X SphereTEC one were prepared by condensing the material into a stainless-steel split mold and divided randomly into two groups. Group I was subjected to polishing using Sof-Lex system™ disks, and Group II was kept unpolished. Each group was subdivided into four sub-groups of 10 samples each. Each subgroup samples were immersed into designated beverages (Tropicana orange juice, Coco-cola, Nescafe coffee, and distilled water) for a duration of 15mins/day for 15 days. The color of all specimens before immersion, one day, and 15 days after immersion was measured using a Spectrophotometer. Results: Significant staining of the material was found with cola drinks and coffee compared to orange juice and distilled water. Polished material showed better resistance to staining by various beverages compared to control group. Conclusion: Nanoceramic composites exhibited superior color stability after polishing with Sof-Lex system™. Among the beverages, coco-cola significantly altered the color of the composite.
