Colorimeters are devices used to measure & detect the color of the sample it is provided with. Dental colorimeters are used in the measurement of spectrum of color of the natural teeth as well as other implants, which helps in attaining the most suited natural looking color for the artificial teeth.

Dental Colorimeters help to reproduce and characterize the exact color of the tooth. Intraoral colorimeters measure the color of teeth with high reliability as well as help in metal-ceramic restorations and also prints out a color recipe for the Vintage Halo Porcelain system. Dental colorimeters use light source and illumination method for measurements. According to a study conducted by National Institute of Health in 2017, In-vivo measurement of maxillary anterior teeth with a dental colorimeter showed that a women’s teeth are generally lighter and less chromatic than men’s teeth.

Color of teeth is determined by dentin, presence of tubules in the dentin causes scattering of light in dentin. Presence of hydroxyapatite crystals causes scattering of light in the enamel.

Dental colorimeter market drivers:-

Increasing inclination of population towards aesthetics of dentition is expected to drive dental colorimeter market growth. According to a study conducted by National Institute of Health in 2017, ideal smile is considered to be an asset, which reflects hygiene as well as enhances the appearance of teeth. This study reveals that more than 50% of the world’s population is not happy with the natural color of their teeth.

According to a study conducted by National Institute of Health, in the U.S. more than 882 patients of the age group 20-29 years and more than 690 patients from the age group 30-39 years were reported for teeth whitening. Therefore, inclination of population towards dentistry aesthetics is expected to propel demand for dental colorimeter to whiten teeth and make them look more attractive, which is expected to fuel global dental colorimeter market growth.

However, dental colorimeters are inappropriate for study of complex color analysis such as colorant strength (coloring ability of a pigment) and metamerism (matching of colors with different spectral power distributions) and lack of skilled professionals to use and interpret colorimeter results as well as high cost of dental colorimeters is expected to hamper dental colorimeter market growth.

Dental colorimeter Market Regional analysis:-

North America is expected to dominate global dental colorimeter market due to increasing inclination of population towards dentistry aesthetics. According to the study conducted by American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 2016, more than 74% of U.S. population are not satisfied with the appearance of their teeth color, shape, etc.

This study reveals that Americans feel their physical appearance is very important, which includes appearance of the teeth, hair, etc. Around 6% of the U.S. population undergo dental treatments such as whitening of teeth for health related reasons and around 86% of U.S. population undergo whitening to look attractive and feel younger. Therefore, rise in interest towards aesthetic dentistry is expected to fuel dental colorimeter market growth.

Europe dental colorimeter market is expected to witness significant growth due to increasing number of geriatric population. Aging causes erosion of the enamel, which exposes the underlying dentin layer of the tooth, which makes the teeth look yellow. According to a survey conducted by World Health Organization in 2017, more than one fifth of European population was aged 65 and above. Thus, increasing number of geriatric population is expected to fuel dental colorimeter market.

Dental colorimeter Market Key Players:-

Key players operating in dental colorimeter market include MHT Optic Research Ag., ZFX, VITA Zahnfabrik H. Rauter GmbH & Co KG., and Dentamerica.

MHT Optic Research’s products include digital dental colorimeter Spectro shade Micro. This device is used to measure dental color as well as their testing needs. Spectro shade Micro uses a digital camera, which is connected to a LED spectrophotometer. Environmental conditions do not affect the measurement of the tooth color. The device reads the color of the tooth and indicates a closest available chromatic standard for reconstruction. This device helps in calculating the numerical difference between the natural tooth color and selected color in terms of brightness. Images and data can be saved in Spectro shade Micro, which would help in further analysis.

ZFX dental colorimeter products include ZFX Shade Digital dental colorimeter. ZFX Shade helps in measuring the color of tooth quickly and accurately. This device consists of a spectrophotometer, which is controlled by a Linux Machine.
