ABSTRACT:
Background: A Laminate veneer is a porcelain dental appliance bonded to the front surface of an anterior tooth to improve appearance, close up existing spaces and improve alignment of the tooth. It is a conservative method for treatment of esthetic and functional problems in anterior region of oral cavity. For fabrication of laminate veneers, wide range of dental ceramics is now available on market. Aim: To create awareness in dental practitioners about the laminate veneer preparation. Materials And Methods: A questionnaire survey was designed for Dental Practitioners. The questionnaire had 10 questions about procedures and materials involved in Laminate veneers preparation. The subjects involved were Dental Practitioners (n=50) who had minimum of one year of clinical experience after their dental education. Questionnaires were distributed to the Dental Practitioners of Chennai city and Data analysis was done using SPSS software. Result: 75% of the dentists were aware about the materials to be used in fabricating laminate veneers. 71% of the dental practitioners had the knowledge about the tooth preparation process in laminate veneer procedure. 84% of the dentists were aware about the alternative treatment for discolouration of teeth due to fluorosis. 49% of the dentists had knowledge on the cementation technique being used. Conclusion: The present study found that the dental practitioners were aware about the laminate veneers but unaware about the recent advances and consequences of laminate veneer failure. Further awareness would enhance the efficacy of usage and overcome the difficulties faced while practicing. Therefore it must be necessary to increase the awareness among dental practitioner about the recent advances and consequences of laminate veneer failure.
