At Walnut Creek cosmetic dental office of Dr. Mehri Zarekari the latest advancements in dental technology is used to restore your smile. To restore shape and function of the tooth that has damage, fractured, or decay of tooth a crown, would be a preferred restoration.
A dental crown covers a tooth, restoring its shape and size, as well as strengthening and improving its appearance. While the benefits of a crown are numerous, the downside is that they require multiple visits.
Until now!
In the past, receiving a crown took at least two appointments, separated by a two-week waiting period. Not any more! Dr. Mehri Zarekari is one of only a few dental offices that offer on-demand, custom porcelain restorations through the use of CEREC CAD/CAM system.
Thanks to this amazing new technique, near-perfect tooth restorations are not only possible, but can be done in just one visit!
What is CEREC®?
CEREC (chair side Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a revolutionary system that allows Dr. Mehri Zarekari to create, design, and fit a new crown in a single visit. During your visit, an image of your tooth is scanned into an acquisition unit. Using Sirona software, your crown is designed to your tooth’s precise specifications. The multi-instrument CEREC system consists of a newly developed light-emitting diode (LED) camera, a computer with 3-D imaging software, and a milling unit with diamond blades for quick, precise, and highly detailed construction of restorations.
There are several advantages to CEREC restorations over conventional laboratory-made restorations:
Single-Appointment Dental Care – With CEREC, you only need to visit the dentist’s office once.
No Temporary Restorations – Conventional restoration procedures require you to wear temporary restorations while the laboratory creates your new restoration. Temporary restorations can fall off or cause other problems. CEREC eliminates this inconvenience.
Complete Control by Your Dentist – Since the restoration is designed and fabricated from start to finish by Dr. Mehri Zarekari, he has complete control over how it will look and fit. By contrast, a crown made in a laboratory is under the control of a technician who must rely upon impressions and dental imagery provided by Dr. Mehri Zarekari.
Fine Materials – CEREC uses strong, tooth-colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. Not only do they look like the rest of your teeth, these materials closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure, allowing you to eat hot and cold foods without worrying about your tooth cracking from the extreme temperatures.

TMJ, Walnut Creek Dentist, Dr. Z.


TMJ stand for Temporo-Mandibular Joint. This is the joint between your upper and lower jaws.  You can feel it moving just in front of your ears when you open and close your mouth.   If you feel discomfort in or near your facial joints or side of your face, you may have what is known as "TMJ dysfunction".  This may effect eating talking and drinking.   If your teeth do not meet properly when you close your mouth dysfunction may occur, it may also caused by clenching or grinding your teeth.   In some cases it may be due to postural problems, which can affect the position of your lower jaw.
According to ADA report, more than fifteen percent of American adults suffer from chronic facial pain.
Diagnosis And Treatment
At Dr. Z.'s dentist office we can help identify the source of the pain with a thorough exam and appropriate X-rays. Often, it's a sinus, toothache or an early stage of periodontal disease. But for some pain, the cause is not so easily diagnosed.
Request an appointment or call our office to schedule a personal consultation during your next visit.

How to treat sleep disorder by dentist in Walnut Creek


Did you know that 50 to 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders?
Types of sleep disorder are:
1) Chronic Illness: Sleep problems can be due to a chronic illness, such as diabetes, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, lupus, Parkinson's diseaseAlzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis.
2) Psychiatric Disorders: There is no evidence that sleep disorders are a cause of psychiatric disorders.  But sleep and psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression are closely related.
3) Stress: If high levels of unwanted stress are not properly managed, your health and sense of well-being can suffer. Therefore, it is important to learn how to manage stress.
4) Menopause: Approximately 75%-85% of menopausal women experience hot flashes, which can last for five years. Hot flashes and sweating can make it difficult to sleep.
5) Pregnancy: The hormonal changes and physical discomforts associated with pregnancy can affect a pregnant woman's quality of sleep.
6) Aging: Regardless of your age, good restorative sleep is essential to physical health and emotional well-being.
7) Snore:  Although snoring can be harmless, it can also be a sign of sleep apnea which occurs when the tongue falls back into the throat during sleep and blocks the airway. Untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to excessive daytime sleepiness as well as an increased risk from high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and driving accidents. This life-threatening condition can be treated in the dental office with a custom-fitted oral appliance.
If you snore, wake gasping for air, or show other signs of a sleep disorder, you may need a sleep test. Request an appointment or call our office at (925) 939-9177 to schedule a personal consultation during your next visit.
