glass ionomer cement

a dental cement produced by mixing a powder prepared from a calcium fluoroaluminosilicate glass and a liquid prepared from an aqueous solution of polyacrylic acid; used for small restorations on the proximal surfaces of anterior teeth, for restoration of eroded areas at the gingival margin, and as a luting agent for restorations and orthodontic bands.
