Calcium silicate cements are gradually making their way through the various materials used in restorative dentistry.
A portion of calcium silicate cement (CSC; Irajazinho Votorantim, Cimento Rio Branco, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) was mixed with 0%, 15%, 20%, 30% and 50% of bismuth oxide (BO; Merck, New Jersey, USA), proportioned in weight using an electronic analytic scale (Mettler Toledo PG5002-S, Sao Paulo, Brazil).
Controversially, the increase of BO decreased the [DELTA]E of the calcium silicate cement. The CSC group presented statistically higher [DELTA]E values than the CSC / 50% BO (p < 0.05).
The radiopacifier bismuth oxide is yellow in color; however, contrary to what would be expected, the addition of a high proportion of bismuth oxide to calcium silicate cement did not result in an increase in yellowness ([DELTA]b).

It is known that calcium silicate cements have the ability to release calcium and hydroxyl ions and to form hydroxyapitite crystals on the surface after contact with phosphate containing liquids like body fluids.
