About CEREC Crowns
Instead of making two visits for a crown, inlay, or onlay, CEREC by Sirona uses Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) that allows general and cosmetic dentists, Drs. Martin, Martin, and Marshall of Martin Dentistry in Indianapolis and Fishers, IN, to design, mill, and place permanent restorations in a single dental appointment. 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

"You can see each of my reviews reflect all the same...Martin Dentistry is THE BEST!!! We really like Matt and Stephanie. Both are so kind, nice, laid back, comfortable to chat with all while very professional!! Great people. And the hygienists are great as well. Recently took our 3 year old for his first visit and they hygienist and Dr. Matt did soooo well not only with my 3 year old and his first visit in making him feel comfy and know what was going on. But also with my 5 year old who was overly chatty and trying to tell all about what was going on and full of even more questions. Highly recommend!!! We love this place!!"- S.J. / Yelp / Nov 19, 2017

"I went yesterday for my first appointment there. The place is very clean and fresh. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful and my wait time was only about 10 minutes which included some new patient paperwork. The dental assistant was great and this place has some great dental technology. Then the dentist came in and she was great also. Friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. During checkout the staff provided me with a financial breakdown of my future visit that displayed the cost, what insurance would cover, and my out of pocket. This is great...all medical offices need to do this."- J.C. / Yelp / Nov 07, 2017
What to Expect
Because 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 foods, 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.
