Objective: The purpose of the study was to assess the preference of colored restorative material based on gender and age-groups in 3–12-year-old children. Materials and method: A Survey was conducted, where children were divided into three groups depending on Age, Group A (3–6 years) Group B (7–9 years) Group C (10–12 years). Class 1 cavity preparation followed by different colored composite restorations of FLUO and PEARL JEN-RAINBOW were done on typodont. All the preferences were recorded according to ranking and visual analog scale. Result: Overall ratings showed difference in preferences of all age-groups. It was difficult to rely on the results revealed by evaluating overall ranking, further it was evaluated based on different age-groups and showed significant difference. For overall preferences recorded using visual analog scale was only significant for one color, pearl white (p=0.018). Conclusion: The findings of this survey suggest that great diversity in preferences was observed not only among gender but even different age-groups.
