The global cosmetic dentistry market size was valued at USD 33.6 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.5% from 2023 to 2030. With an increasing population opting for the improvement of dental aesthetics, this industry has undergone great advancements. Developing countries have generated a large amount of disposable income, which is the main reason why cosmetic dentistry is flourishing. The geriatric population, in general, has propagated the growth of this industry, owing to old age-related tooth ailments. Treatments that include teeth whitening, changes in dental appearance, and malocclusion are the most frequent procedures that patients undergo in cosmetic dentistry. Dental tourism has been an important reason that has caused cosmetic dentistry to prosper globally.
The market is gaining popularity due to the promotion of sugary food and drinks, as well as tobacco and alcohol, which has resulted in an increase in the consumption of products that can cause oral health issues and other non-communicable diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Oral Health Status Report (2022), nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide were affected by oral diseases, with 3 out of 4 affected individuals residing in middle-income countries. Globally, approximately 2 billion people have tooth decay in their permanent teeth, and 514 million children have tooth decay in their baby teeth.
In addition,cosmetic dentistry has been greatly transformed by new technologies and treatment methods. These advancements have brought about advanced tools, materials, and procedures that offer dental professionals more effective and efficient solutions. As a result, cosmetic treatments have become more accessible and attractive to patients. For instance, with 3D printing, dentists have the option to use a digital wand to scan the teeth, design customized oral appliances, and print them directly in their on-site dental lab. This eliminates the need for old techniques which allows for more precise and efficient dental treatments.
The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the market and the business of various market players. The pandemic resulted in supply chain disruptions such as cost inflation, shortages of supply, and shipping delays. It also increased the financial burden of market players in terms of labor availability, which resulted in an increase in labor costs. However, telemedicine became a boon for both dental surgeons and patients. With ease in restrictions in different regions, the market players were able to continue with their operations.
The dental systems and equipment segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 33.8% in 2022. This is attributed to their wide range of applications in the dental industry. Based on the product, the industry is segmented into dental systems and equipment, dental implants, dental crowns and bridges, dental veneers, orthodontic braces, bonding agents, inlays and onlays, and whitening. Approximately 19% of adults worldwide, with over 1 billion cases, are estimated to be affected by severe gum diseases. Dental lasers which come under the dental systems and equipment segment are used for gum reshaping and removing inflamed tissues which is driving the cosmetic dentistry market. In severe cases, the gums can separate from the teeth and underlying bone, resulting in loose teeth or tooth loss.
The orthodontic braces segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 28.7% during the forecast period. The campaigns and activities such as Oral Health Foundation's initiatives National Smile Month, Dental Buddy, and others are creating awareness about dental products, dental health, and appearance, thereby facilitating segment growth. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, 25% of patients seeking orthodontic treatment are adults. If misaligned teeth remain untreated, it can lead to dental problems such as wearing down of teeth, cavities, gum disease, and trouble chewing. Furthermore, adult orthodontic treatment can help improve your bite and lower the chances of having these problems in the future.
North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 40.0% in 2022. This is attributed to technological advancements and an increase in the number of individuals opting for procedures involved in cosmetic dentistry. Moreover, factors like high acceptance and openness toward aesthetic treatments and growing appearance consciousness are likely to propel market growth in the region. In January 2023, W&H, a dental equipment company, launched a new product, Assistina One, in North America. This device is designed to take care of dental handpieces by performing necessary lubrication cycles. It is known for its speed and efficiency, as it can complete the entire cleaning process in just 18 seconds, making it the fastest option available. With its advanced features, W&H aims to improve the performance and durability of dental equipment in the North American market.
North America is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 14.8% during the forecast period. This can mainly be attributed to factors such as high personal disposable income. According to data published by the U.S Bureau of Economics, in April 2020, personal income increased by USD 1.97 trillion (10.5%) and Disposable Personal Income (DPI) increased by USD 2.13 trillion. Moreover, the increasing expenditure on healthcare, availability of certified professionals, well-built healthcare infrastructure, and easy access to aesthetic services are key growth factors.
