This study evaluated the mechanical properties of laser-welded cast and wrought titanium base and compared them with those of a brazed type IV casting gold alloy. Ultimate tensile strength, 0.2% yield strength, and percent elongation were recorded for joined and unjoined bars of the previously mentioned materials. Sections of titanium bars were laser-welded, and gold alloy bars were brazed. Both joining methods significantly reduced the ductility of the material. The strength of the cast gold alloy was superior to that of titanium. However, the strength of the laser-welded titanium equaled that of the brazed gold alloy, which suggests that dental restorations made of cast and wrought titanium would satisfy ordinary clinical requirements.
