North Carolina Cosmetic Dentist Now Offering New Dental Restorations Technology

San Diego, California, UNITED STATES

ASHEVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - Mar 15, 2012) - Dr. Mark Kleive, a cosmetic dentist in Asheville, has announced he will now be offering CEREC® technology, an innovative dental device for the manufacturing of crowns, implants, and other restorations. Dr. Kleive says he is excited about the new machine's capability to fabricate precise restorative dentistry fittings in a matter of minutes, expediting patient visits and improving their overall dental experience.

At his Asheville cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Kleive focuses on a range of cosmetic and restorative procedures including Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns. Dr. Kleive recently announced the addition of CEREC® technology to his repertoire of dental restoration services in the hopes of improving patient comfort and care. Developed by global dental equipment company Sirona, the CEREC® device manufactures crowns, fillings, and other restorative dentistry procedures from porcelain or ceramic materials. Dr. Kleive says he hopes offering the procedure will allow him to utilize some of the most advanced technology on the market to perform detailed, effective restorations for procedures like crowns and dental implants in Asheville.

As an in-office, chair-side procedure, Dr. Kleive says patients can enjoy the immediate benefits of the CEREC® device through aesthetic, functional restorations created in a quick and precise manner while they wait. Through the use of advanced computer mapping software, he says he will be able to correct chipped and missing teeth with full-contour crowns and bridges in an expedited process. Dr. Kleive also says the improved efficiency of the CEREC® technology means fewer injections, less visits to the dentist, and less drilling for dental restorations. "The most impressive benefit is the increase in patient comfort that this technology provides. Overall there is less appointment time, fewer procedures during each appointment, and a healthier process for individual teeth. Patients also appreciate not having traditional impressions taken."

Regardless of whether patients are looking for a restorative procedure like dental crowns or a cosmetic enhancement such as porcelain veneers in Asheville, Dr. Kleive says staying up-to-date with the latest technology is essential for providing patients with the quality care they expect. He says he is excited about the new device and hopes it will reiterate his commitment to the highest standard of excellence and quality results for his patients, as well as the latest technological advancements. "Dentistry is changing and changing for the better. Patients can now have their mouths restored with better materials in a shorter amount of time. It's possible for people to experience a more positive side of dentistry and this type of technology allows that to happen."
