    Abstract

    Colour changes in four currently used brands of acrylic dental teeth were measured objectively and assessed subjectively following the application of heat, acrylic monomer and light. The data indicated that no clear correlation existed between the results of visual inspection and opto-electronic measurements. It is suggested that visual assessment is an unreliable method of detecting colour change, and an objective colorimetric method is therefore recommended. © 1996 Blackwell Science Ltd.
