As the use of GI and All Ceramic Restorations ACRs increases, there will be greater incidence of these restorative materials in direct contact at the external cavosurface margin. There is insufficient research to evaluate the performance of glass ionomer GI when it is in contact with an ACR and simultaneously exposed to the oral environment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the marginal integrity of a ceramic inlay when bonded to a GI restoration, as compared to that of a ceramic inlay bonded to cementum.
