An ideal luting cement material should exhibit a long working time for providing the ease of manipulation to the mixing assistant and the clinician to insert and place the fixed restoration ensuring the correct occlusal relationship, has adequate adherence to the prepared tooth structure, cast alloys or any other material used in fabrication of fixed prosthesis, provides a hermetic seal, be non-irritant and non-toxic to pulp, has an adequate strength, provide luting in thin compressive layers, has low viscosity and solubility, has optimum setting characteristics and the excess or flash after cementation can be easily removed. Glass ionomer cements have become the most popular choice as luting material for cast restorations due to his excellent working characteristics and adhesion to prepared tooth enamel & dentin.

Among the unique properties exhibited by glass ionomer luting cements is their biocompatibility, better mechanical strength than zinc phosphate & polycarboxylate cements and fluoride release which can prevent the occurrence of recurrent decay and strengthens tooth’s defenses against microorganisms. However, it needs protection from moisture contamination soon after placement and must be protected with the help of a resin coat, foil or Vaseline layer or left undisturbed for at least 10 minutes.
