B. John Rozar Raj, Dr. Dhanraj, Dr. Anandhi

Background Porcelain repair system is a quick, painless and highly patient acceptable procedure, without removal of restoration or fabrication of new restoration. Porcelain repair systems allow a dentist to fix crowns and bridges that have damaged. These repair systems may work on ceramics and composite resins in addition to porcelain. Porcelain repair systems should be user-friendly and include a prime/bond component, an opaquer and a silane component. Some type of curing will be necessary to set the repair, often this will be light cured. A feature to look for in porcelain repair systems is excellent masking capabilities, the opaquer should have a smooth consistency and should appear homogeneous, this will ensure a seamless repair. Be sure to inquire about shelf life, it should be between 1-2 years. Aim To conduct a survey about knowledge, awareness and practise among dental practitioners regarding porcelain repair system Materials and Methods A questionnaire with 14 questions were prepared. Questions were given to the subjects by the researcher and the answers were collected. The data were represented in the form of pie charts. Results and Conclusion The knowledge, awareness and practise among dental practitioners regarding porcelain repair system is good. Majority of the participants have a good knowledge about the porcelain repair system and its effectiveness. Since it is a cost efficient and a simple method, porcelain repair system can be preferred rather than other expensive and complicated methods.
