The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of repeated firings on the color stability of Vita VMK95 and Ivoclar IPS classic metal ceramic porcelain systems using a colorimetric. In this experimental in vitro study, 24 disc-shaped specimens, 10 mm in diameter with a 0.3 mm base metal alloy (Supercast) thickness were prepared and two types of porcelains, a 0.2 mm opaque and a one millimeter dentine porcelain (Shade A3) thickness, were applied on them. Samples were fired one, three and six times. Color measurement was carried out after each firing using a colorimeter (Minolta, CR-10) and data were expressed in Commission Internationale I'Eclairage (CIE-LAB) system coordinates. In this study, the parametric paired t-test was used to analyze the data. After six times of firing the 1*, a* and b* parameters were significantly different, before and after aging, for Vita VMK95 (respectively p = 0.043, p = 0.002, p<0.001); however for Ivoclar IPS classic, only a* parameter was significant difference before and after aging (p<0.001). After repeated firing, color stability of Ivoclar IPS classic was better than Vita VMK95 porcelain.
