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.

Many different types of bacteria live, work, and play in your mouth. They hide in the spaces between your teeth and gums, and in the deep crevices of your tongue. They eat food left on your teeth after meals. Feasting on these “leftovers “, bacteria pour out volatile sulfur compounds and bad smell.
In some instances bad breath (Halitosis) may be caused by medical conditions (liver, lung, and stomach problems). In a few instances, it is cause by certain foods. But bad breath from food quickly goes away. Over 95% of bad breath is caused by bacteria (germs).
During regular check up and cleaning, dentists should be on the look out for teeth with gross decay or periodontal involvement since these can be a source of hard to get rid of malodorous bacteria. In a patient with a relatively healthy mouth, a simple thorough cleaning and the implementation of improved oral hygiene regime (flossing and brushing) will often eliminate bad breath. Tongue scrapping and oral irrigation will also help to remove the bacteria from both sides of tongue.
Regardless of what steps are taken at home to prevent bad breath, frequent and thorough cleanings at your dentist are highly recommended, since these cleanings will eliminate most of the plaque and bacteria that accumulates around the teeth.

Gum disease is a bacterial infection that can lead to damage to the gums, tissue, and bone around your teeth. The destruction of tissue and bone causes pockets to form around teeth. ARESTIN® with scaling and root planing can help address some of the symptoms of gum disease.
Bacteria are the cause of gum disease. And antibiotics kill bacteria. Scaling and root planing (SRP) removes a great deal of bacteria that cause periodontal infection. But this procedure can’t reach all bacteria that hide in the bottom of pockets. That’s why your dentist may decide to add a locally administered antibiotic (LAA) such as ARESTIN®.
