Abstract

Cosmetic & aesthetic procedures are usually accompanied by ethical considerations toward the patient such as, whether they need to have this procedure or not or whether will it be beneficial and long-lasting for their case. The study aims to have a better understanding of the ethical values & views of dentists toward cosmetic dentistry, in particular: laminate veneers. This is a descriptive cross-sectional study of dentists working at hospitals & clinics in Riyadh in both private & public sectors. After receiving ethical approval (RC/IRB/2018/1155), data was collected through a self-administered questionnaire after validation & conducting the pilot study. A total of 351 dental practitioners gave their consent to participate in this study and filled the questionnaire, 196(55.8 %) were males and 155(44.2 %) were females. The study included 74.1% of GP’s and 25.9% in dental clinics in Riyadh. The findings in our study suggest that the overall aesthetic dental practice among the participants in this study runs within the relevant ethical rules and guidelines cited by national and international dental regulatory.
