Abstract : INTRODUCTION: All ceramic restorations (ACRs) are gaining popularity due to excellent physical properties and esthetics. Glass ionomer (GI) and resin-modified glass ionomer (RMGI) provide a tooth-colored restorative option when resin composite is not ideal and a metal restoration is not desired. GI and RMGI provide a slow and continuous release of fluoride and have physical properties similar to natural tooth structure. As the use of ACRs, GI and RMGI increase in dentistry, there will be greater incidence of these restorative materials being used in direct contact with each other at the external cavosurface margin.
