More people are seeing the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. According to a report by Technavio, the global oral hygiene market is expected to grow steadily at a rate of about 4% in the next four years. The study covers the current and future prospects of the global oral hygiene market for 2016-2020. According to Abhay Sinha, a lead analyst at Technavio for health and wellness research, “The increase in overall awareness about health and hygiene has also led to an increase in demand for premium products, even among men. Premium products incorporate organic components that are safer than traditional oral care or hygiene products. Improved markets and increased disposable incomes will boost the demand for premium oral hygiene products in the future.”
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, approximately 99% of people believe that a smile is the most important social asset. The desire to have white teeth compels consumers to buy teeth whitening products. Previously, approaches to improve the appearance of teeth were limited to straightening crooked teeth but now there are advanced whitening products that enhance the appearance of teeth by removing stains and treating discolorations. The high adoption of these products has paved the way for cosmetic dentistry, which comprises a variety of services and procedures. These include bleaching, bonding (tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth), contouring and reshaping of the teeth, and placement of veneers, crowns, and inlays, all of which can improve your dental health and your smile.
