When you forget to brushing your teeth, bacteria in your mouth feed on the food particles left on your teeth. It takes about 24 hours for bacteria that build around your teeth to mature. That bacteria then produce acidic waste which eats at your enamel and causes cavities to form over time. The plaque left behind on your teeth also calcifies over time and becomes impossible to remove without a visit to the dentist. Your teeth are especially vulnerable to cavity-causing agents and gum disease when we sleep because antibacterial saliva production slows. Thus, brushing your teeth before bed and when you wake up is recommended.
It’s important to note that gum, mouth freshener, and mints will make your mouth feel fresher, but will not remove the plaque that brushing and flossing remove. So find two minutes between checking Facebook and chasing Pokemon to brush and floss your teeth before you go to bed and when you wake up for healthier teeth and fewer visits to the dentist.

The end of the year is when most flexible spending, health savings, and insurance benefits expire and we’d like to give you a friendly reminder that it’s a good time to come in for your dental visit.
Just like most dental insurance policies, people with HSA, and medical savings accounts have to use them before the end of the year or lose the money. This can be used for procedures that are not well covered by some traditional dental insurance such as night guard, teeth whitening, veneers, or implant surgery.
A little advice to those planning to use this type of account at the dentist. Don’t wait until the last moment to use it. Why not give your dentist enough time to get started in time with the procedures that you need!

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the bone of the upper or lower jaw and allowed to bond with the bone and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth. Implant supported replacement teeth can look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
The benefits of treatment include:
Basic Implants are $1,200 – $3,500 each, but the total cost can go up to $4,000 – $ 6,000 depending on location, complexity and the need for bone or gum restoration work. We do offer a no interest payment option for qualified candidates.

Crown in a Day! | Less than 2 hours!
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.
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.
