What’s New In Dentistry?

Advanced Dentistry in Fresno

The world of dentistry continues to advance at a rapid pace. If you have visited Mirelez Wellness Dental, your Fresno dentist, you have probably noticed some things that make your visit more comfortable, such as the ability to watch TV or listen to music while receiving treatment.

What may not be as obvious are the advances in techniques, tools and materials. Top dentists now use digital computer imaging which is safer than traditional x-rays. Dental technicians can store, retrieve and transmit digital images much easier than was possible with traditional x-ray film.

The use of lasers has also changed the face of dentistry. Laser surgery requires less anesthesia, minimizes swelling, and protects surrounding tissue. We can use lasers to detect and treat cavities, and dental technicians use them for the curing of restorative materials.

Another exciting development in cosmetic dentistry is the CAD-CAM technology that allows cosmetic dentists to perform restorations in a single visit. The types of procedures that can be completed in one visit include crowns, fillings, inlays, onlays and veneers.

If you need a thorough exam, expert dental cleaning, or want to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, call Mirelez Wellness Dental to schedule a consultation. During your visit, you can see before and after photos of some of our smile makeover patients. We would love to help you achieve the smile you deserve, and your Fresno CA dentist has the tools, experience and technology to make that happen.

Common Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

Common Myths about Fresno Family Cosmetic Dentistry

There is nothing particularly mysterious about cosmetic dentistry, as practiced at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno. And yet, certain myths about it prevail. We’ll try to spike a few here:

Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many so-called cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Some, such as tooth replacement, prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many vital advantages. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Mirelez Wellness Dental, we offer our dental patients teeth whitening treatments that are generally more effective than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide best results and can often lead to uneven coloring.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a sensational smile.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we provide family and cosmetic dentistry, and many other services. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Hiccups In Your Dental Routine

Medera cosmetic dental veneers

One common reason people give for not flossing their teeth is that it’s too difficult to fit into their day. If that sounds at all like you, here are some suggestions for when to fit this important dental health habit into your day. The team at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno assures you that flossing, along with brushing, can help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other issues.

Flossing your teeth is important to your dental health. Think of it this way: you wouldn’t ignore the buildup of dirt and dust on your kitchen floor, would you? The same is true with flossing. Brushing can get a lot of the debris from your teeth, but not all of it. They go hand-in-hand.

  • The most common time to floss is right before bed, but make sure you aren’t too tired to do a good job.
  • Right when you wake up is also an option, but if food is left between teeth all night, it can lead to plaque.
  • Try just after lunch, before you go back to work.
  • Floss while you’re stuck in traffic. It’s easier one-handed with the pre-strung floss picks. (You might get some odd looks from other drivers, but it’s worth it.)
  • Keep some floss in your gym bag so you can floss after you exercise.
  • While you’re watching the nightly news.

From time to time, we’re asked: should I floss before brushing my teeth, or after? It really doesn’t make much difference. The important thing is that you floss every day.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we help our patients prevent cavities and gum disease. We also help them get the smile they want with cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and teeth whitening. Give us a call today to schedule your next appointment.

Missing Teeth? Dental Implants in Fresno

It’s a deceptively simple idea: replace a missing tooth by attaching an artificial one directly to the patient’s jaw. It’s an idea that has been around for a thousand years or more, but in the last half century, it has become an exact science. Dental implants are one of the specialties offered by Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno.

First, let’s clarify one point: a dental implant refers not to the artificial tooth, but to the titanium post that is embedded in the jaw. It goes where the tooth root used to be, and because of that, helps to prevent bone recession. An artificial tooth sits on top of the post.

A bridge used to be the only real option for people who wanted to replace a missing tooth. Not anymore. The American Dental Association says that dental implants are one of the biggest advances in dentistry. They look and function just like a natural tooth.

Even people who are missing all of their teeth can benefit from dental implants. New, permanent styles of dentures can be supported in the jaw by implants. They are far more secure than traditional dentures.

If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, dental implants may be just what you’ve been hoping for. Call us at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno to see if you are a viable candidate. We also provide sedation dentistry, and family and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.

No Worries! Root Canals in Fresno

The dentist’s office is sometimes seen as a painful and scary place. At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we do our best to dispel that image with a welcoming atmosphere. Even so, when patients hear they need a root canal, a lot of them are going to get tense.

It doesn’t need to be that way. With modern dentistry, a root canal isn’t much different than getting a cavity filled.

A root canal is a procedure done to relieve dental pain, and to save a tooth. It usually becomes necessary when there is inflammation or an infection in the tooth’s root. We clean the inside of the tooth by removing bacteria, soft tissue (called pulp), decayed nerve tissue, and any debris. The tooth is then sealed, and a crown is put in place.

We want root canals, and all other procedures, to be as comfortable as possible. An option we provide for patients with dental anxiety is sedation, in the form of laughing gas and oral conscious sedation. Both options are proven to be safe and effective.

In addition to root canals, Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno provides family and cosmetic dentistry. We are a mercury-free practice. Call our office today to schedule an appointment.

A Little Help: Sedation Dentistry in Fresno

Dental anxiety affects millions of Americans. For some people it’s so strong that they avoid going to the dentist altogether. That might seem rational enough: why do something when you know it’s going to upset you? The problem with that, of course, is that they’re putting their dental health at risk. Sedation dentistry from Mirelez Wellness Dental can help.

The reasons some people get anxious just thinking about a checkup and cleaning include having sharp scrapers in their mouths, and the fear of injections. We take these concerns seriously, and offer these patients two sedation options: laughing gas, and oral conscious sedation.

  • Laughing Gas Laughing gas has been used in dentistry for more than a hundred years. It may or may not make you laugh, but it is safe and effective. It also wears off quickly.
  • Oral conscious sedation. This is a sedative, in pill form. You take it an hour or so before your scheduled procedure. It does not usually make patients sleep, but it will make you very drowsy. You won’t be very aware of what’s going on around you, and will need a ride home afterward.

Skipping the dentist puts your dental health at risk. Sedation dentistry is valuable, because it can get you here when your instincts may be to skip your appointment, or not even make one. Better to have a little help getting through a procedure than getting a mouth full of cavities, or worse.

Don’t let anxiety prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Make an appointment with Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno today. We provide family and cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, and are a holistic practice. Make an appointment with us today.

5 Cosmetic Dentistry Questions For Fresno Smiles

How Much Does A Smile Makeover Cost In Fresno

If you are considering a multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures or extensive restorative dental work, Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno offers your four considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
At Mirelez Wellness Dental, our smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. We develop a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.

Oral Sedation?
Many of our patients benefit from sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost?
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most patients. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered.

Healing Time?
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the necessary healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?
Our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases. However, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.

Call Mirelez Wellness Dental today to find out more. We also provide family dentistry. Visit our smile gallery to see what we can do!

Has Your Toddler Had A Dental Exam?

Children’s Dental in Fresno For years, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday. As we can confirm at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, the new thinking in family dentistry is before the child’s first birthday, or within six months of their first tooth.

Why? Prevention, prevention, prevention! Sadly, dentists everywhere continue to find extreme tooth decay in very young children. This is totally unnecessary in a community with sufficient health and dental services.

High-risk children should be seen as early as possible. Following are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle (if you put your child to bed with a bottle, we strongly urge you to stop this practice)
  • Drinking juice consistently during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with significant tooth decay
  • Other health issues

The most effective way to ensure lifelong oral health for kids is to train them early on appropriate daily dental hygiene, provide a healthy, low-sugar diet, and build a relationship with a trusted family dentist. We urge parents to be proactive about their children’s dental health.

At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we love seeing our youngest patients. We practice family dentistry, along with cosmetic dentistry. We area mercury-free, holistic practice. Make an appointment today.

A Fast Way To Brighten Your Smile

Fresno fast teeth whitening Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your smile. It is quick, economical, and non-invasive. Though some of our patients at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno experience short-term sensitivity, most report no pain at all.

If you have looked into teeth whitening systems, you probably already know the essentials. The one thing they have in common is that they use a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have settled in the natural microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.

There are many DIY teeth bleaching treatments available and it seems like new varieties appear every time you visit the toothpaste section at your grocery store.

Tooth whitening strips and pens, for example, can brighten your teeth a few shades. But the peroxide – the common ingredient in teeth whitening – is in much lower concentrations than the solutions used at the dentist’s office. It may not be effective enough for your tooth stains.

Tooth whitening offered at mall kiosks is risky, also. Most of these teeth whitening businesses have no professional oversight and the employees have little dental training.

We recommend extreme caution when considering a take-home whitener. If you have cavities, gum recession, crowns, or veneers, you definitely need professional guidance.

Even though teeth whitening seems simple, your teeth deserve a professional opinion. Call us at Mirelez Dental Wellness in Fresno to schedule a tooth bleaching evaluation. We also provide family dentistry, dental implants, and other cosmetic dentistry services.
