The global dental crowns and bridges market was pegged at US$ 3.25 billion in 2021 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period.
To restore the size, strength, and shape of teeth, fixed prostheses such as dental crowns and bridges are employed. Dental crowns and bridges can also enhance the appearance of teeth. Dental crowns are used to support and cover a tooth with a large filling as well as to protect and cure fractured or weak teeth. Dental bridges are also utilized to keep the form of the face, regain speech and chewing ability, and stop the remaining teeth from shifting. A dentist mounts these onto the patient's natural teeth. Due to their comfort and proficiency in performing these restorations, dentists endorse dental crown and bridge therapies.
During the projected period, the global dental crowns and bridges market is anticipated to be primarily driven by the growth in demand for aesthetic and preventative dentistry. The increase in edentulous patients and rising interest in aesthetics are other market drivers. Additionally, it is projected that the development of novel technologies, such as CAD/CAM, will promote growth. Given that it enhances the development and design of dental restorations, this technique is anticipated to become more widely used shortly.
The global market for dental crowns and bridges, however, is being held back by several main issues, including inadequate reimbursement, and rising out-of-pocket costs.
The global dental crowns and bridges market has been analyzed from four perspectives: type, material, end-user, and region.
Dental Crowns and Bridges Market by Type
Based on type, the global dental crowns and bridges market is segmented into, crowns and bridges. Due to an increase in the number of people without teeth compared to those with damaged teeth, as well as their capacity to produce a seamless appearance and enhance oral health, bridges have the biggest market share.
