The aim of this study is to understand the factors that influence the color stability of composite restorations. we live in a world of esthetic dentistry where esthetic tooth-colored restorations are the trend today. Composite restoration which satisfies this need of esthetic tooth-colored restorations has evolved tremendously. Although the material holds good promise in the field of esthetic dentistry, it also possesses certain disadvantages such as discoloration in the long run. This article reviews the various factors that affect the color stability of composite restorations. since patients seek better esthetic restorations, the proper color matching is important not only in the first period of service but also over a long period. Thus, awareness of the various factors that influence the color stability of composite restorations is beneficial.
