This market includes composite and GI and RMGI core build-up material segments. Other materials in the market include silver amalgam materials and various hybrid composite resin materials (compomers), but the extent of their use is limited and not considered in this report. Core build-up materials is the smallest segment in dental materials and over the forecast period the market value is expected to decline even further as people take better preventive measures to avoid invasive tooth treatments and as other minimally invasive treatments come to the fore. Core composite materials have proved to be optimal in the majority of core build-up circumstances. Composite adhesive cores in particular are becoming increasingly popular because an excellent bond can be achieved with the tooth structure when they are used in conjunction with a suitable adhesive system.
A core build-up is a restoration placed on a severely damaged tooth in order to restore the bulk of the coronal portion of the tooth. The core is defined to be part of the preparation of an 'indirect restoration' consisting of restorative material. When fabricating crowns or bridges, it is often necessary to use a core material before preparation to reconstruct extensive sections of lost tooth caused by large carious lesions or previous dental treatment. It is suggested that the placement of a core is necessary when more than 50% of the coronal part of the tooth is missing.
