This invitro study is conducted on 30 horse teeth. Three restorations are compared glass-acid and alkaline are grossly studied and the compressive strength measurements are done at the first day and after three months of acid and alkaline resistance test. The superiority is for glass ionomer-polyethylene, cellulose-polyethylene, and mercury amalgam respectively.
