Twenty samples of three composite resins (Ceramage, SR Adoro, Luna-Wing) and three ceramics (IPS In Line, Hera Ceram, Reflex Dimension) immersed in three acidic beverages (Red Bul, wine, Coca Cola), for 5 minutes, three times daily, 14 days. The control samples were immersed in artificial saliva during the study periode. After the end of the erosive cycles and before to determine the surface roughness of the samples in the study groups, all the samples were immersed in artificial saliva for 18 hours. The surface roughness was determined in relation to the baseline surface using profilometer Perthometer_M1 (Mahr Gottingen GmbH, Germany). The immersion of the indirect restorative materials tested in the three acidic beverages lead has resulted to changes in their surface roughness. The most aggressive was wine, followed by Coca Cola, and Red Bull.
