Dr. Mark Kleive, a cosmetic dentist in


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


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


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



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
