An in-vitro study was done to compare the surface finish of conventional Glass Ionomer Cement with that of fast setting Glass Ionomer cement. (In-vitro study) Ten intact non-carious central incisors were selected and Non-retentive class V cavities were prepared and 5 teeth were filled with conventional Glass Ionomer Cement (Group I) and remaining 5 teeth were filled with fast setting Glass Ionomer (Group II). All the samples were finished and polished. The samples were subjected to Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) analysis. Results showed that under all magnifications fast setting Glass Ionomer Cement exhibits better surface finish and marginal integrity when compared to conventional Glass Ionomer Cement.
