If it happens very often, you may end up damaging some system components, which may require replacement – such as motherboards or graphic cards ,or even face certain health issues in the long run.
Technically, the reasons can be many; for instance if you are gaming or running some resource intensive task or maybe running virus scans, installing software, etc, laptops may over-heat.
