Titanium porcelain crowns are an effective restoration method, bringing bright smiles and confident beauty to patients. In particular, the cost is only from 1.5 million/tooth.

1. What are titanium ceramic crowns?

Titanium porcelain crowns have been around for a long time but are still trusted to this day. Teeth are composed of 2 parts:

  • The inner core is finished with an alloy containing 4 – 8% Titanium, very light but sturdy.
  • The outside of the teeth is coated with Ceramco III porcelain enamel. Each thin layer is overlapped to create a color similar to real teeth. Then, the technician proceeds to grind the teeth so that the shape and size match the real teeth.

The following cases should use titanium ceramic crowns:

  • Teeth with chips larger than 2mm cannot be effectively filled or easily peel off, causing loss of aesthetics.
  • Teeth with decay or root canal treatment are no longer as strong as they were before.
  • Teeth become discolored due to alcohol, tobacco or antibiotics.
  • Teeth are spaced, the distance between teeth is not too large.

In addition, titanium porcelain crowns are also used in implants or dental bridges to restore lost teeth, improving the patient’s aesthetics and chewing ability.

2. What are the advantages of titanium ceramic crowns?

Titanium porcelain teeth have been a popular choice at dentists thanks to their outstanding advantages. May be mentioned as:

2.1 Titanium porcelain teeth are durable and lightweight

Titanium porcelain crowns are light in weight, so they are often used for the upper jaw and help limit dental bridge collapse. On the other hand, titanium porcelain teeth have the same force-bearing ability as real teeth, helping to improve the patient’s chewing ability. At the same time, the lifespan of titanium and ceramic is also quite long, up to 10 years if properly cared for.

2.2 Teeth covered with titanium porcelain are safe for the body

Titanium material is safe and often used in medicine. The outer ceramic coating is also proven to be benign, not causing irritation to the gums and surrounding soft tissues. The thermal conductivity of teeth covered with titanium porcelain is average, so there is no sensitivity when eating hot/cold foods. This creates comfort in daily activities for patients.

3. Disadvantages of titanium ceramic crowns?

Along with the advantages, titanium porcelain crowns also have disadvantages that make them less and less popular:

3.1 The color of titanium porcelain-covered teeth is not exactly the same as real teeth

Due to the metal core, it is not exactly the same color as real teeth. If you look closely, titanium porcelain teeth are opaque white, not pure white like real teeth. Therefore, if the patient has high aesthetic requirements, titanium porcelain teeth are not the optimal choice.

3.2 Teeth covered with titanium ceramics are susceptible to blackening of the gum line

This is what gives patients the most “headache” when using titanium porcelain crowns. After a period of time, the metal part is easily oxidized in the oral environment, causing discoloration at the tooth roots and gum line.

3.3 Lifespan is shorter than all-ceramic teeth

In real life conditions, the average lifespan of titanium porcelain crowns is about 5-7 years. This number is much lower when compared to all-ceramic teeth (up to 20 years). However, patients can increase the lifespan of titanium porcelain teeth by taking proper oral care according to the doctor’s instructions.
