Introduction: Tricalcium silicate cements can be used for pulp capping, pulpotomies, apical barrier formation in teeth with open apices, repair of root perforations, regenerative endodontics, and root canal filling. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the discoloration potential of 3 different tricalcium cements using a bovine tooth model. Methods: Forty bovine anterior teeth have been used for the study. Crowns separated from the roots were randomly divided into 4 groups: the BioAggregate (IBC, Vancouver, Canada) group, the Biodentine (Septodont, Saint Maur des Fosses, France) group, the mineral trioxide aggregate Angelus (Angelus, Londrina, PR, Brazil) group, and the only blood group. Materials have been placed to the standardized cavities on the lingual surfaces of the crowns, and their contact with blood has been provided. The color values of the samples were measured with a digital tooth shade determinator (VITA Easyshade; VITA Zahnfabrik, Bad Sackingen, Germany) before the placement of the materials, after the placement of the materials, in the 24th hour, in the first week, in the first month, in the third month, and in the first year. The mean value of all groups was compared using the Tukey multiple comparison test (alpha = 0.05). Results: All groups displayed increasing discoloration during a period of the first year. The "only blood group" showed the highest color change values, and it was followed as BioAggregate, mineral trioxide aggregate Angelus, and Biodentine, respectively. Statistically significant differences were found for Biodentine when compared with the only blood and BioAggregate groups (P < .05). Conclusions: Considering the results of the study, Biodentine is found to have the least discoloration potential among the tested materials.
