The aim of this study was to investigate the cumulative effects of fruit juices and/or alcoholic beverages on wear track area of the restorative materials by simulating the oral environment in vitro. A microhybrid, a sub-microhybrid, a nanofill resin composite, and a giomer material were used. A daily exposure habits model was created to simulate consumption frequency of acidic and/or alcoholic beverages. Two-body wear tests were carried out using a reciprocating wear tester. ANOVA and Tukey's HSD tests were used for statistical analyses (p < 0.05). When considering experimental groups related to daily exposure habits, statistical difference was found between restorative materials in terms of wear track area (p < 0.01). Joint effect of rmaterial and exposure on wear track area was statistically significant (p < 0.01). Giomer was found to be more affected by acidic and alcoholic beverages. Microhybrid resin composites showed less wear than the other restorative materials. Cumulative effects of alcoholic beverages and fruit juice on wear track area of materials could be related to material's composition and frequency of consumption of acid or ethanol-containing beverages. Daily cumulative effect of acidic and alcoholic beverages was found to be stronger than only acidic fruit juice consumption in terms of wear track area. The plasticizing effect and the concentration of ethanol in the alcoholic beverages provided the basis for the increased wear track area on the restorative materials.
