Aim:Due to high aesthetic qualities, proven biocompatibility and prognosis for long term durability, porcelain veneers have become a routine restorative procedure for treatment of frontal teeth. The aim of this study was to evaluate their use through the private dental offices in our country. Materials and methods:Over 30 dental offices from different parts of Macedonia were included in the study. A specific self-reported questionnaire to collect information from dental practitioners was also implemented in the study.Statistical analysis was performed by using paired sample t-test from Statistical software SPSS for Windows version 23. A p-value < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results: We registered that a very small percentage of the dental offices use porcelain veneers, slightly greater number are composite veneers, but most of the offices that were involved in our study did not made this kind of aesthetic restorations at all. Conclusion: The study emphasize the poor use of these aesthetic restorations in our patients who focus more on aesthetics than their dental health, and want to achieve aesthetic for a lower price without caring about the durability of that restoration. Keywords Esthetic restorations,frontal teeth, porcelain veneers.
