Moreover, the supply of many pieces of equipment also witnessed a setback which led to lesser manufacturing of the product.

Developing countries such as India and China are expected to have opportunities in the alveolar contouring sector, owing to heavy sugar consumption and poor brushing habits.

So this can be a factor leading to the growing dental contouring industry in this region.

Diamond burs are highly effective in removing the targeted teeth and polishing the teeth more effectively, which can promote the growth of this segment.

It will continue to grow in upcoming years as well, owing to the fact that most of the teeth are exposed on the front side, which is prone to get cracks, fractures, and chips which leads to crooked teeth and change the shape and size of the teeth where central incisor takes a major role to improve reshaping.

Similarly, the demand for lateral incisors is also at boom and expected to drive the market as it is required besides the central incisor. Central incisor helps to fill the gaps between teeth and repair crooked teeth; lateral incisors are also required to help with traumatic alveolar injuries. They are basically used for bonding the teeth after the removal of braces and for fixing some minor teeth injuries.

This results in the chipping of teeth and pain while biting or chewing, which could be cured by smoothening and by cutting trimming sessions.

In addition, minor crowding is also expected to grow over the period. Many adults face overcrowding of teeth from a younger age, affecting the smile's appearance. This could be treated by veneers, aligners, and braces, which have had heavy market demand in the past. So, this could be a major factor leading to driving the market.
