    Introduction: Radiographs are very essential diagnostic aids in the field of dentistry. The radiopacity of the restorative materials plays an important role in distinguishing the material from the surrounding hard tissues. The aim of this study is to test the ability of dental students to identify radiographs of various dental restorations on maxillary premolar teeth. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 natural maxillary premolar teeth were collected from clinics. Class 1 cavity preparation was done using a 245 bur. The teeth were then randomly allocated into three groups of 10 each and restored with amalgam, composite, and glass ionomer cement, respectively. Standard radiographs of the teeth were taken. A questionnaire was then prepared and distributed to 210 dental students of various dental colleges. The obtained results were then subjected to statistical analysis. Results: Only 75% of the final years answered amalgam as the right option. About 70% of the final years and 90% of the interns answered composite as the right option. About 82% of the postgraduates, 72% of the interns and 60% of the final years answered guaranteed investment contract as the right option. Conclusion: The ability of the Final year students to identify the correct restoration was lower than that of the Interns and Post graduates. There was no significant difference between the Interns and Post graduates in identification of the restorations.
