Objectives : To evaluate and compare the clinical performance of Giomer (Beautifil II) and RMGIC (Fuji II LC) in noncarious cervical lesions. Materials and Methods : Thirty-two subjects with one or two pairs of noncarious cervical lesions were included in the study. Each pair of lesion was restored with either giomer or RMGIC assigned randomly. Clinical evaluation of restorations was done using USPHS criteria. Data was formulated in a predesigned format and subjected to statistical analysis using the chi square test. Results : Statistically significant difference was found between RMGIC and Giomer with respect to surface roughness with P value <0.001. Conclusion : Giomer showed superior surface finish compared to RMGIC. Both Giomer and RMGIC showed equal retention ability.
