Accurate shade matching of tooth colored restoration with the adjacent dentition is essential not only at the time of fabrication but also for the life time durability. This is a factual truth for dental porcelain but in contradiction, color instability in porcelain restoration is a common dilemma nowadays, especially when they are exposed to routinely consumable beverages, which sever its nature of being tooth colored. Here the authors have attempted to highlight the historical outlooks, researches on color stability and difficulties, and current trends for color stability in tooth colored restorative materials, predominantly dental ceramics. A methodical literature search was performed using MEDLINE/PubMed and other scholarly research bibliographic databases using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) from 1953 to 2013. Most of the studies suggest and evidence that there is no ceramic available, which could be classified as total stain free; however, there is wide diversity in their color stability and surface characteristics seen with different oral conditions both qualitatively and quantitatively.
