Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate and compare the optical properties of supra-nano spherical filled resin composites and the nanofilled, nano-hybrid and microhybrid composites using the Kubelka-Munk Theory. Diffuse reflectance of samples (Shade A2) was measured against white and black backgrounds, using a spectroradiometer, using a viewing booth with D65 illuminant and d/0º geometry. S and K coefficients and T were calculated using Kubelka-Munk's equations. The spectral behavior of S, K and T was similar for all dental resin composites analyzed (VAF close to 100%), even though they were, generally, statistically different (p≤0.05). The K-M T values overestimate the real value of Transmittance of the resin composites. Supra-nano spherical filled resin composites show the highest scattering and Transmittance when compared with the others materials, probably due to the shape and size of the filler. Such difference should be taken into consideration in a clinical situation to reproduce natural esthetic restorations.
