Porcelain Onlays

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: rootcanalpain  (10 years ago)
Greetings!!

I had a root canal done on one of my upper molars and the dentist wants to put porcelain onlay on it. He said, it will preserve more of the natural tooth structure and it will not irritate the gums.

Does anyone have any experience with porcelain onlays ? How long can they last?

Thank you for your time!

Hello!

I had porcelain onlays placed on my rear molars for almost 7 years already. I never had any problem with them so far.

Hello Rootcanalpain,

Porcelain onlay covers only the weak part of the tooth. I have one and I love it. It is very esthetic, it looks extremely natural. I've heard it lasts 15-20 years.
