ABSTRACT:To evaluate and compare the diametral tensile strength and shear bond strength of Cention N, FujiCEM 2 with a conventional glass ionomer cement. A total of thirty samples were used for the evaluation and comparison of diametral tensile strength. Ten samples of each of the restorative material were prepared with the help of metallic moulds and stored in distilled for 24hrs, following which they were tested on the Universal Testing Machine at crosshead speed of 5.5 mm/min. A total of thirty-three premolars were used to evaluate the shear bond strength with eleven premolars in each group. The premolars were then grinded perpendicular to the long axis of the tooth, restored with the respective cements following the manufacturer’s instructions and stored in distilled water at room temperature for 7-10 days, later they were subjected to thermocycling. After 24 hours, the specimens were tested in the Universal Testing Machine at a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/min. The obtained data was statistically analyzed. There was statistical difference in diametral tensile strength values of Cention N when compared to FujiCEM 2 and Fuji IX (p value= 0.00). The shear bond strength of Cention N was significantly higher than that of FujiCEM 2 and Fuji IX (p=0.005 and p=0.008 respectively). The results of our study concluded that Cention N performed better in terms of mechanical properties than FujiCEM 2 and Fuji IX.
