About CEREC Crowns
Until recently, restorations demanded at least two dentist visits since physical impressions were made and sent to a dental laboratory. Fishers, IN dentists Drs. Matthew Martin, Stephanie Martin, and Lynn Marshall are pleased to offer CEREC technology for same-day restorations. CEREC (short for ceramic reconstruction) uses CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) technology to produce the restoration at our office while you wait. Martin Dentistry uses the CEREC system to make custom made crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. The CEREC system can also be used for cosmetic dentistry to make custom-made veneers. This innovative treatment permits you to skip the discomfort and time of physical impressions and temporary covers. Schedule a consultation at our Fishers, IN office to learn more about CEREC restorations. Benefits of CEREC include:
- One visit crowns, inlays, and onlays
- No temporaries
- No impressions — it’s all digital
- Natural-looking ceramic restorations
- Durable restorations for lasting results

"Nobody likes getting dental work done -- especially me. But Dr. Stephanie and her assistant Connie have been so helpful and made me feel much better through everything. I have had a few appointments here recently for fillings and a crown. I asked LOTS of questions, and they were so friendly and helpful. We had fun conversations at every appointment. The work seemed so easy to them that it put me at ease. They obviously have a lot of experience. The administrative side (scheduling, reminders, getting cost estimates, etc) has always gone smoothly for me, unlike my previous dental office. I'm glad I chose Martin Dentistry."- A.F. / Yelp / Apr 19, 2019

What to Expect
Since CEREC restorations are all porcelain, they do not work in every situation. Back teeth, for instance, require metal dental materials to endure the intense, crushing pressure from biting and chewing. Martin Dentistry works with reputable dental labs and talented ceramists for quality lab-crafted restorations when patient need metal dental restoration. CEREC creates digital impressions of the tooth or teeth that require restorations. These digital impressions are transmitted to the milling unit, which molds a block of porcelain into the custom crown, inlay, or onlay. The dentist can then bond the dental restoration to the teeth during the same visit.
After the CEREC crown is cemented in place and checked by the dentist for fit and bite, the dentist will give the patient home care recommendations about caring for their new crown, including a good home oral care routine, regular dental exams, and cleanings. To protect the new crown, patients should avoid chewing hard things, like ice and their fingernails. If the patient grinds their teeth or clenches their jaw at night, a night guard may be recommended to protect the crown.
