The followings are the results: 1. In the specimens of glass ionomer cement and compomer, APF gel 4 minute immersion group and pH cycling group show statistically significant increased surface roughness than artificial saliva immersion group (p<0.01). 2. There was no statistically significant surface roughness for composite resin in all group (p>0.05). 3. When the specimens were examined under scanning electron microscope, the surface change were in the order of glass ionomer cement, compomer, composite resin and also in the order of pH cycling group, APF gel 4 minutes immersion group, artificial saliva immersion group.
