Tooth Filling Materials Market Size

Tooth Filling Materials Market size was worth over USD 2 billion in 2022. Driven by the growing occurrence of dental caries globally, the industry could grow at over 5.5% CAGR from 2023 to 2032.

Tooth Filling Materials Market

High incidence rate of dental disorders, including dental caries and associated ailments such as gingivitis & periodontitis, has increased the need for tooth-filling materials. As per WHO, severe periodontal conditions could affect nearly 19% of the global adult population. Moreover, escalating government initiatives toward improving oral health are propelling industry growth. For instance, in October 2022, the government of Canada announced an investment of USD 2 million over five years for supporting a national research network to advance oral health science in Canada.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a severe impact on the tooth-filling materials market owing to supply chain upheavals birthed by prolonged lockdowns. Additionally, elective procedures, including dental treatment, were postponed and canceled, which reduced the demand for tooth-filling materials. In fact, an American Dental Association (ADA) Health Policy Institute survey indicated that the offices of 97% of dentists were serving only emergency patients in 2020. However, the restoration of dental procedures due to successful vaccination drives will help the industry recover in the post-COVID-19 era.

Tooth Filling Materials Market Trends

Recent innovations in tooth-filling materials are presenting growth pathways to the market. Nanotechnology has now made its way into dental materials, including tooth fillings. Nano-sized particles of materials like silica or zirconia are increasingly getting incorporated into composite resins to enhance their properties. These nanoparticles can improve the strength, wear resistance, and aesthetics of the filling material. They may also have antibacterial properties, reducing the risk of secondary decay, resulting in increased product uptake.

Tooth Filling Materials Market Analysis

Connected Tire Market Size, By Component, 2021 – 2032, (USD Million)

Based on the product, the composite resin segment amassed around 35% of the tooth filling materials market share in 2022. Superior durability, rapid bonding, and the natural appearance of composite resins favor their adoption. These fillings have low thermal conductivity, meaning they are less sensitive to temperature changes than metal fillings (such as amalgam). These materials can be color-matched to the natural shade of the tooth, providing a seamless blend with the surrounding tooth structure, thus, driving product demand.

Connected Tire Market Share, By Vehicle Type,

With respect to end-use, the dental clinics segment accumulated around 57% revenue share in the tooth filling materials market in 2022. High availability of advanced procedures such as laser dentistry, digital imaging, and CAD/CAM technology for restorations has increased patient visits to dental clinics. These facilities provide improved access to dental insurance either through private plans or government programs to make dental care more affordable and accessible to a larger population. Growing number of dental clinics will further support segment growth.
