The purpose of this present study was to investigate the influence of material filler and RGB values' fluctuation on creating a calibration curve, which indicates the relationship between material thickness and transmitted light brightness using the transillumination method. Creating the calibration curves were carried out through the following three methods; 1) the conventional method creates the calibration curve with a formula of thickness, 2) the maximum value method, with samples of a specified thickness, and 3) the actual value method, with a microscope. Furthermore, the reliability of each curve was verified via scanned artificial tooth data. In addition, the characteristics of light decrement were investigated. From our results, it was suggested that the filler diameter must be considered when the calibration curve is created using the bite impression material with a filler. In addition, it was suggested that the RGB values' fluctuation did not influence the calibration curve.
