What’s New At Your Fresno Dentist Office?

Affordable Smile Makeovers In Clovis

Hello friends of Mirelez Wellness Dental, today we’re talking about the modern dental office in CA – California. Dentistry is a field of continual innovation. There are always new and improved ways to help Clovis residents have the healthiest and most beautiful smile possible.

Many dental offices in the Medera, Selma, and Oakhurst areas have found that switching to digital X-rays makes for more efficient appointments. Also, the dental images can more easily be stored in a patient’s computer file and compared with past images.

Diode lasers are innovative instruments that allow your Clovis area dentist to detect bacteria levels in your mouth as well as find and treat cavities.

For Fresno patients interested in cosmetic or restorative dentistry, CAD (computer-assisted design) technology can allow procedures that involve crowns and bridges to be done in fewer appointments.

If you are considering a full smile makeover and want veneers, the newer, thinner veneers are just as strong and beautiful, but more of the original tooth is left intact.

I’m Dentist Art Mirelez. I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. My practice, Mirelez Wellness Dental, is located at 5492 N Palm Ave, and our genuine dental team is always ready to welcome new patients. We offer the following services:

cosmetic dentistry
dental implants
porcelain veneers
teeth whitening
sedation dentistry

Call 559-761-1871 today to schedule an appointment!

Mouthwash Facts In Fresno

Mouthwash Facts In Fresno

Hi, I am Dentist Art Mirelez.  Thanks for visiting my Mirelez Wellness Dental blog. In today’s post I would like to discuss mouthwash. Many California residents use mouthwash to freshen their breath and help retard tooth decay. Mouthwash should never be used exclusively though, good oral hygiene starts with thorough tooth brushing and flossing. Mouthwash is an optional tool in your dental hygiene tool box.

It is important for CA – California residents to know what kind of mouthwash they are using. Some mouthwashes merely mask bad breath while others help reduce the bacteria that causes plaque and bad breath.

If you are one of the Fresno residents that suffers from bad breath it is important to choose a mouthwash that contains ingredients that help prevent tooth decay such as fluoride. But you also need to use caution when using mouthwashes because many of the ingredients are dangerous when the recommended amount of mouthwash is exceeded.

Some of the poisonous components are chlorhexidine gluconate, ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and methyl salicylate. If you experience throat pain, vomiting, headache, or abdominal pain after using mouthwash, seek medical help immediately. The National Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222) can answer questions about mouthwash ingredients.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental we want everyone to have great smelling breath, but to use caution when treating their bad breath. Make sure to read your mouthwash label and follow all instructions given.

In addition to preventative dental care, Mirelez Wellness Dental offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. If you are anxious to have a whiter, brighter smile talk to Mirelez Wellness Dental about teeth whitening. Mirelez Wellness Dental also provide holistic dentistry.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental we have been improving the smiles of residents in Fresno, Clovis and the surrounding areas since 2003. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

You May Have Gingivitis

Fresno Dentistry Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are dedicated to oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t influence your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause troubles.

The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.

Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Mirelez Wellness Dental, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.

It is important for people to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are a tip off that something is out of order.

If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while and live in the Clovis area, call Mirelez Wellness Dental at 559-761-1871.

Dr. Mirelez will perform an intensive examination of your teeth and gums and take time to discuss the results and recommendations with you.

Mirelez Wellness Dental is a full-service dental practice at 5492 N Palm Ave in Fresno. We provide comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry for patients who live in Fresno and the nearby communities of Medera, Selma and Oakhurst.

During your dental consultation, we can discuss any cosmetic or restorative procedures in which you are interested. Some of the procedures that we use to achieve dazzling smiles are porcelain veneers, orthodontics, dental implants, and tooth bleaching.

If you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a while, we invite you to schedule a comprehensive cleaning. Our hygienists are skilled professionals who carry out the ultimate in dental deep-cleanings.

Oral health and overall health go hand in hand. Schedule a dental consultation today by calling 559-761-1871.

Reinvent Yourself With A Smile Makeover

Oakhurst smile makeover

A smile makeover can boost your confidence for an upcoming job interview, promotion or new relationship. The process may include teeth whitening, invisible braces, veneers, dental implants, or gum tissue graft surgery.

Many of these take time. Understanding the process requires only a simple consultation. Small changes can make a big difference.

How The Rich Do It
Public figures from London to Hollywood, from New York to Vegas would advise you to:

  • Choose a dental professional with excellent education, a discerning eye and impeccable track record in the cosmetic dentistry field.
  • Consult with the professional, chart a course, and trust the course enough to see it through to completion.
  • Websites are great for cosmetic dentistry track records, education info, staff description and contact information. Visit Mirelez Wellness Dental’s website at http://www.mirelezdental.com/meet-dr-art-mirelez/.

Do Not Cut Corners
Cheap glue and shoddy engineering never stopped a plane crash. Every cosmetic dental smile makeover should have a unique treatment plan to achieve optimal results. There is no magic pill. Healing takes time before proceeding to the next step. Dental implants, for instance, are valuable in the comfort and beauty they offer but pushing the placement of the permanent restoration before proper healing is dangerous and risky. Learn to be patient with the goal in mind.

Better Smile, Better You
Is this the year to reinvent yourself? Consider improving your physical fitness, taking up a new hobby, pursuing continuing education or a new career to go along with your new smile.

A smile makeover is defined differently for every person. Meet Dentist Art Mirelez, serving Fresno, California and the Medera, and Selma areas since 2003. All it takes is one consultation with this dental professional before you are on your way to your dazzling smile.

Dentist Mirelez’s capable staff schedules patients for consultations and holistic dentistry, cosmetic, and dental implants procedures. We offer services from porcelain veneers to sedation dentistry including cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, and dental implants.

Call 559-761-1871 to schedule. We are located at 5492 N Palm Ave in Fresno, CA – California and on the web at http://www.mirelezdental.com/meet-dr-art-mirelez/.

Time To Upgrade Your Smile?

Cosmetic Dentistry Options Have you thought about upgrading your smile? Cosmetic dentistry offers many remarkable possibilities for Fresno residents.

The quickest and least invasive procedure is teeth whitening. The results are dramatic and teeth whitening side effects are minimal.

If your teeth are slightly crooked, but require no orthodontic work, porcelain veneers could be the answer. Porcelain teeth veneers are translucent, wafer-thin covers that are permanently attached to the front of teeth, correcting chips and stains. Prepless veneers do not require the removal of tooth structure.

If your teeth are more than slightly crooked, it’s not too late for braces. Fresno dental patients of all ages are undergoing orthodontic treatment and achieving fantastic results. The newest braces are less noticeable, more comfortable and bring teeth into alignment much faster than old-school metal braces.

Has gum recession caused the metal base of an old crown to be visible? Soft tissue grafts and/or crown replacement can correct this problem.

Are you missing one or more teeth? One of the best tooth replacement options is a dental implant. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

Can you envision yourself with a dental makeover?
Call Mirelez Wellness Dental at 559-761-1871 to discuss your cosmetic dentistry options.

6 Things You Should Know Before Having Oral Surgery

how to prepare for oral surgery Fresno

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery,  the patients of Mirelez Wellness Dental are given 6 critical instructions to get them through from start to finish.

First, Choose Wisely
Understanding the pros and cons of a procedure helps you attain the prime outcome. This essential knowledge about your dental experience opens up a conversation with our staff. Which leads us to the next instruction:

Second, Question Up Front
Before calling 559-761-1871 to schedule an appointment for a desired procedure, please schedule a consultation to answer these 4 important questions:
-What are the alternatives to having it done?
-Why is this the best option?
-How many visits should I expect?
-What kind of complications or risks are there?
(After you’ve asked your questions, we’ll ask ours.)

Third, Update Records
This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at Mirelez Wellness Dental want to prepare for any emergency. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey essential details to you post-procedure.

Fourth, Be Honest
While Dentist Art Mirelez has a gentle, understanding touch, we find that slight pinches and cramping and other pain can arise while you are in our chair. When the doctor asks if you are comfortable, please, please be honest. We understand it is problematic to communicate clearly when your mouth is inundated with tools. Experience has helped us to read your cues. Let us make you as comfortable as possible.

Fifth, Rest and Recover
After any extensive procedure, it is critical to allow a period of rest for your mouth. This rest period may vary depending on how the procedure goes. This instruction will be given to you along with any other required recovery instructions. Follow these as issued.

Finally, Sixth, Accept our Thanks
We appreciate your business and we appreciate the way the Clovis communities have spread the word that Mirelez Wellness Dental is Fresno’s best kept dental secret located right here at 5492 N Palm Ave Fresno, CA – California or on the web at http://www.mirelezdental.com/meet-dr-art-mirelez/.

Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Fresno Dental

Many health-conscious individuals in the Clovis area exercise regularly, and many turn to sports drinks for hydration.

While it’s true that they help preserve electrolyte levels in the body (and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks), their acidity can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel erodes, those pearly whites are more susceptible to staining, discoloration, and decay.

Nobody wants stained teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.

If you have already experienced staining and tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers and teeth whitening in Fresno, give Mirelez Wellness Dental a call at 559-761-1871.

We are an outstanding Fresno, CA – California dental practice that offers:

cosmetic dentistry
dental implants
porcelain veneers

Dentist Art Mirelez has been providing first rate dental care since 2003. The genuine staff here can answer any questions you have about vital preventative oral care and cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, gum contouring, invisible braces, tooth-colored fillings and smile transformations.

When Wayward Teeth Take A Crooked Path

Fresno orthodontics

Malocclusion is dental-speak for crooked teeth. When you examine all the different ways numerous 3-dimensional objects can be positioned, it is not surprising that malocclusion presents itself in multiple forms. The number of configurations may surprise you:

When teeth slant forward, it is called upper protrusion, but you may have heard this condition referred to as “buck teeth.”

An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth come down too far over the lower teeth when the mouth is closed. And underbite is the reverse condition – the upper front teeth close farther back than the lower front teeth. An open bite refers to a bite in which the upper don’t overlap the lower teeth. This can be present on the whole bite or just one side.

Tooth rotation is one of the most common forms of malocclusion. Rotated teeth appear as if they are twisting out of place. Tooth rotation can create the illusion of uneven coloring because of the way light reflects off the face of the teeth.

When the upper and lower palate are misaligned to the point where the upper teeth close onto the wrong side of the lower teeth, it is called a cross bite.

In some rare cases – called transposition – teeth erupt in spots where other teeth should be. For example, a canine (pointed tooth) comes in where an incisor (front biting tooth) should be. Can you imagine trying to chew if your teeth have been playing musical chairs?

Many people with crooked teeth are too self-conscious to smile, but aesthetics are not the only issue at play. Crooked teeth can increase the risk of cavities, tooth damage, and TMD temporomandibular joint  (TMJ) disorder. Young children with crooked teeth may have difficulty learning how to speak, and if they can’t chew meat and raw vegetables correctly, they may miss out on necessary nutrients due to a limited diet.

If you or your child has crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, we invite you to schedule an intensive examination straightaway.

When Style And Oral Health Collide

 

Oral piercing is a popular form of body-art in Fresno, but just because it’s popular doesn’t mean it’s safe. I’m Art Mirelez, a dentist serving the Medera, Selma, and Oakhurst areas. When my patients ask me about the safety of oral piercings, I make sure they examine the possible dangerous consequences.

First, patients should know that infection is always a major concern with any piercing, but because the mouth is the perfect environment for breeding bacteria, oral piercings are especially problematic. Your ability to chew, swallow, and speak can also be impaired by an oral piercing.

Oral piercings can lead to an increase in saliva flow and, possibly, excessive drooling, something my dental patients generally want to avoid. (I don’t know anyone in Fresno who thinks drooling is attractive.) It’s also critical to know that chipped or cracked teeth, damage to dental fillings, and metal sensitivity are other possible issues.

Another serious risk associated with piercings that should concern patients is nerve damage. Many people experience temporary numbness after a piercing, but for some, the damage is severe and sensations never return. An injured nerve can also impact facial movements as well as your sense of taste.

If you’ve want to get a tongue bar or lip piercing, please talk to your dentist so you can consider the safest decision possible for your dental health.

If you are looking for an experienced dentist in the Fresno area to count on for accurate information and the highest quality care, we welcome you to Mirelez Wellness Dental. Call 559-761-1871 today to schedule an appointment. We offer dental implants, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and more!

We may even convince you that safe, effective cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, veneers, or bonding would be a smarter and safer way to express your personality and boost your confidence. Give us a call today!

Dental Crowns At Mirelez Wellness Dental In Fresno

Dental Crowns at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno Dental crowns have been used in dentistry for over 2000 years. There is evidence that the Etruscans experimented with crowns on teeth using ivory and bone as early as 700 B.C. By 200 A.D., they began using gold crowns to construct artificial teeth. Ancient Egyptians fashioned tooth replacements out of seashells and then hammered them into their gums. (Oral sedation, anyone?)

Porcelain crowns were first used in the 1800s. With the refining of metal casting methods in the 1900s, crown dentistry advanced significantly.

Today, crowns are strong, comfortable and are made to match your surrounding teeth.

Dental crowns (also called caps) cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are cemented in place. Crowns are used to strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury. Crowns are also used to restore the original shape of a tooth or solely to improve the appearance of a tooth.

The most common types of crowns are:

  • All-porcelain (ceramic)
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal
  • Gold

The material used is determined by several factors. If you suspect you need a crown, want to replace an old crown, or want to learn about other cosmetic dentistry procedures, call Dentist Art Mirelez at 559-761-1871. Mirelez Wellness Dental is located at 5492 N Palm Ave in Fresno. We have been serving patients in the Clovis area since 2003. We can recommend the best tooth restoration or cosmetic dentistry option for you.
