With the rising incidences of dental disease and related oral care concerns across the globe, the trend is shifting from conventional to advanced dental services. The traditional dental services are overpowered by advanced dental care services such as cosmetic dentistry and laser dentistry. Laser technology in dentistry has been a boon for the patients as well as the oral care specialists. This painless technology has gained popularity and is in high demand in procedures such as extraction of tooth, dental polishing, orthodontics, and periodontal decay. Based on the study in 2013, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) has approved laser treatment as one of the most effective procedures for restorative and other dental procedures. Many countries such as the US, Australia, and Sweden have implemented the use of laser dental care. During the procedure, bleach is applied on teeth and the heat generated by the laser helps in enhancing its effectiveness while speeding up the process. It uses a strong bleaching gel that the laser activates and offers quick results. This results in increased consumption of gels, which will in turn contribute to the market growth. With the implementation of these procedures precautions are taken to counter teeth sensitivity, and provide protection to lips and gums. The precautions include cheek retractors, formulated soft or rubber dams to cover gums, professional application of desensitizing products.”

The high adoption of these products has cemented the way for cosmetic dentistry. In addition, veneers, crowns, whitening procedures, and inlays/onlays are the popular cosmetic treatments used by consumers to improve their dental health and appearance. Teeth whitening process is an integral part of cosmetic dentistry as it is used after the correction of teeth structure and polishing. It helps in correcting the appearance of the individual user by removing intrinsic stains from the surface of tooth. Teeth whitening products are easily accessible to users and can be used even while sitting at home or while sleeping.
