Extracted teeth were included in the present study. Each experimental group consisted of 10 embedded teeth. The data was collected and evaluated. The result was analysed using SPSS software. Results: They were divided into groups. Mean shear bond strength was noted. The shear bond strength for glass ionomer cement in capping material was 6.01. Conclusion: Glass ionomer cements provide sufficiently high shear bond strengths as capping agent and in restoration
