The demand for improved esthetics in dental prosthetics is no longer exclusive to veneers. With the higher quality of all-ceramic material restorations, crowns and bridges no longer function to simply repair or replace missing teeth.

New research shows the Australian dental prosthetics market is valued at $426 million USD. This total value is made up of revenues from the dental crown, bridge and denture markets. Growth in the overall dental prosthetics market will be driven by a strong demand for more aesthetically pleasing dental restoration product selections.

Crowns and bridges accounted for the majority of the total dental prosthetic market value. All-ceramics are especially popular, and compared to the other Asia-Pacific countries, Australia appears to be more technology driven, which will contribute significantly to the increase in all-ceramic restorations and the growing adoption rate for CAD/CAM technology.

Common Dental Prosthetic Materials

Gold and Gold Alloys: Gold prosthetics are popular due to their strength and durability. They tend to last longer than structures made from other materials as they resist abrasion and fractures. Aside from the higher cost, some consumers may be put off by the unnatural appearance of prosthetics made from gold.

Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM), Semi-Precious and Precious Alloys: Crowns and bridges made of PFM look significantly more like real teeth than gold or gold-alloy devices. This type of material is a combination of metal alloys and porcelain. Precious alloys must be made of at least 60% noble metals (gold, platinum, palladium, rhodium, iridium, osmium and ruthenium), with a minimum of 40% gold composition. These devices benefit from both the natural appearance of porcelain and the durability of the metal base.
