Knowledge, Awareness and Practice among Dental Practitioners Regarding Porcelain Repair System
Abstract: 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.
