Glass Ionomer 

Glass Ionomer Cements (GIC) are tooth-coloured like composite. They contain a component that releases fluoride into the tooth over time.

Glass ionomer cement is usually used on a temporary basis to improve appearance of a tooth/to remove sharp edges when there is not enough time to place a more permanent filling such as amalgam or composite.

It is well suited for small restorations and in children’s teeth.
