    What are dental restorative materials?

    Dental restorative materials are used in the treatment of the integrity, function, and morphology of missing tooth structures. Tooth structures can be damaged from caries or external trauma. The materials used in dental restoration include composites, glass ionomer, amalgam, porcelain, gold, etc. However, amalgam is phasing out from the market because of its harmful mercury content coupled with the inability to match the tooth color.

    Impact of COVID-19: Sales in 2020 to plunge below 2014 level.

    Segment Analysis

    By Material Type

    The market is segmented as amalgam, glass ionomer, composites, and others. Composite accounted for a market share of more than 50% in 2019 & is expected to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing material type in the market over the next five years. The huge dominance is attributed to the superior esthetics offered by composite restorative materials coupled with the property to chemically bond with the tooth. Glass ionomer also holds a significant share of the market and is slowly gaining traction, owing to the property of releasing fluoride ions to prevent tooth decay in the future.
