Less than 0.5mm from the pulp:

  • Use Ca(OH)2 followed by a fluoride-release liner (GIC) and a dentin bond agent/resin liner

Greater than 0.5mm from the pulp (low caries activity):

  • Use a fluoride release liner (GIC) with or without a copal varnish or a dentin bond agent/resin liner

Greater than 0.5mm from the pulp (high caries activity):

  • Use a fluoride release glass ionomer liner (Vitrebond, XR Ionomer, Timeline,GIC etc.) and a dentin bond agent/resin liner
