The Old Way
Getting a dental crown using a more traditional process can take several weeks. A typical process involves an initial appointment in which the dentist takes impressions and molds of a patient’s mouth, then sends the impressions to a local dental lab where the restorations are created. The patient must then come back to the dental office weeks later when the restoration arrives back from the laboratory in order to have the crown or onlay bonded into place. The entire process can be time consuming.
The New Way Using CEREC
Thanks to Westermeier Martin Dental Care, area patients can enjoy the best in state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Drs. Westermeier and Martin use CEREC technology to create restorations within one hour in one dental appointment. After the tooth is made ready, the doctor simply takes a picture with the computer and the CAD/CAM technology produces the restoration in minutes. This helps to create a natural, life-like restoration that can be bonded in the mouth in as little as one hour. The restorations offered at Westermeier Martin Dental Care are always metal-free and beautiful!
CEREC (which stands for Chair side Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics) is a way for Drs. Westermeier and Martin to provide quality, high-end restorations faster and easier than ever before. CEREC allows the dentists to fabricate restorations on the spot, which is great in emergency situations like when a patient may have lost or broken a crown and needs a replacement as soon as possible. With the CEREC machine, faster restorations are available like never before!

Before and After
Dr. Martin and his staff are wonderful. They are friendly, helpful and make you feel comfortable. The facilities are beautiful both inside and out . I’ve never had a bad experience here. Would highly recommend Westermeier Martin to anyone looking for honest , knowledgeable, and kind dentists and dental assistants who treat their patients with compassion and respect. They are honest about dental work and will not rip you off ( unlike the high profile dentist in Amherst that I had previously been to). Westermeier Martin have integrity and class.
The staff are Amazing!!!! They are always so pleasant and patient with each person. There is never a long waiting period to go into a room. Dr. Ehlers is wonderful. I am so glad I made the change from my dentist to Westermeier Martin. Never have I been disappointed with anyone or any procedure I have had done. Very thorough and answers every question. Would highly recommend!!!!!
The staff were welcoming and helpful. Check-in was quick, though patients should have their new patient paperwork completed in advance. Patti and Doctor took enough time to review the situation, run through the potential treatment plans, explain the procedures. They also reviewed options for the timing, costs and potential issues. They were very accommodating in terms of planning for the overall treatment and sensitive to options to spread the cost out to meet budgeting requirements. It was a great initial consultation.
