ABSTRACT

Background: The interest in dental ceramics has been increasing due to the recently developed techniques and technologies. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the awareness, knowledge, and practice of the patients using laminate veneers and their effect on the periodontium, in Al-Qassim region. Methodology: A cross-sectional study was conducted using an online survey on the adult Saudi population of 18-year old and above, living in the Al-Qassim region. It was a questionnaire-based study consisting of three major areas, including demographic data, participants' general knowledge about dental veneers, and participants' main sources of information regarding attitude toward dental veneers. Results: A total of 301 individuals filled the online survey. The mean age of the participants was 31.4 7.3 years. Surprisingly, those who used veneers and laminate lacked enough knowledge regarding all its side effects [e.g., gingival infections (p = 0.7), teeth scratches (p = 0.5), accumulation of food and bacteria (p = 0.6), and change in teeth color (p = 0.1)], on the other hand, the knowledge regarding veneers, laminates care, and cleaning was found to be correlated with age (p = 0.007) and in the current users of veneers (p = 0.0001). Conclusion: The knowledge of the Saudi population regarding laminate veneers, its care, its side effects, and its lifespan was insufficient.
