At Mirelez Wellness Dental, we are privileged to be a Fresno dentist, able to give our patients the oral health education they need to have a healthy smile.
Good dental health depends on good habits, so we want you to have all the information you need to practice those habits.
When our patients are in need of a dental procedure such as a filling or a crown, we take the time to explain the treatment and why it needs to be done. We also explain how to care for your teeth post-procedure.
In addition to having healthy teeth and gums, we also want our patients to have the beautiful smile they deserve. That’s why we work to make our patients aware of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are available. Procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are simple, but can have amazing results.
Children should be proud of their smiles. They express joy, laughter, and fun! To make sure your child has a healthy and attractive smile, start early with proper care with family dentistry from Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno.
Children should have their first dental visit when their first tooth comes in, or by their first birthday – whichever comes first. Such an early visit surprises some parents, but kids are increasingly prone to cavities. That early visit is the first step in preventing troubles and setting the stage for lifelong dental health.
Taking a child in before any teeth come in has benefits. Parents can learn about caring for an infant or toddler’s mouth. Issues like thumb sucking often arise around this time. They’ll also learn about the link between diet and dental health. Promoting a healthy, low sugar diet is always optimal for young teeth.
A toothache is sending you a simple, clear message: “See the dentist!” They always seem to happen at night, or over the weekend, when they are least convenient. At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we tell our patients to never ignore tooth pain. And we are committed to emergency dental care.
Mouth pain is never normal. We’ll determine the cause of the pain so proper treatment can begin. The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity. But other possibilities include gum disease, a broken crown, mouth sores, bite issues, and TMD (temporomandibular disorder).
We also provide the latest cosmetic dental services, and love to transform smiles. Cosmetic dentistry procedures boost confidence and improve anyone’s overall appearance. Men and women who have invested in a smile makeover feel that their personal and professional relationships have benefited.
Most of us know that vitamin D is important to healthy teeth and bones, but many of us fail to get adequate amounts. As a holistic dentist in Fresno, Mirelez Wellness Dental reminds you of the importance of vitamin D.
Vitamin D has been called the “sunshine” vitamin. That’s because it is produced in the skin in response to sunlight. Of course, you can also get vitamin D in the foods you eat, and by taking supplements.
One of the most important things that vitamin D does for the body is regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It also helps normal immune system function.
If you don’t get enough vitamin D, you could develop problems like soft or fragile bones. And of course, it plays an essential role in keeping your teeth strong and healthy, working in conjunction with calcium. (Maybe you’ve noticed that calcium supplements frequently include vitamin D.)
At Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we provide the best, most up-to-date dentistry possible. Central to holistic dentistry is treating your dental health as part of your overall health. We encourage all of our patients to eat a healthy diet complete with all vital nutrients. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
Are you an adult with crooked teeth? Do you wish you would have had braces as a kid, but think it’s too late? We have some good news: at Mirelez Wellness Dental, we offer clear braces.
The main advantage of clear braces is that it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn, but the results are definitely noticeable!
There are several types of clear braces.
ClearCorrect braces look like the kind of mouthguard an athlete would wear. They are removable, so you can take them out at mealtimes. That means that unlike traditional braces, you don’t have to get particles of food from them when you brush. They come out at bedtime, too.
Six Month Smiles are also clear braces, although they use wires. The wires are teeth-colored, so they are not as noticeable as traditional braces. And like the name says, in most cases they can straighten teeth in about six months.
Inman Aligners use a special spring to straighten teeth quickly and effectively. In most cases, they can straighten a smile in six to sixteen weeks.
Please call the Fresno office of Mirelez Wellness Dental to see if clear braces will work for you. Your oral health is important, so make sure you are getting the regular exams and cleanings you deserve. We also provide family dentistry, and are a mercury-free practice.
If you’ve lost most or all of your teeth, you don’t need to be told how dispiriting that can be. But dentures have come a long way in recent years, and here in Fresno, they’re not your only option.
1. Dentures are not the only replacement choice for missing teeth. Dental implants used alone or in combination with a partial denture is often a preferable option for patients. Whereas a removable appliance replaces only the visible parts of teeth, an implant replaces both the root and crown of a tooth. This has critical implications. Dental implants can prohibit bone recession that generally occurs following tooth extractions. Dental implants can deliver patients the near-normal ability to chew, speak, and laugh.
2. There are more than one type of denture. Most men and women are familiar with the removable denture that replaces a complete upper or lower arch. There are also partial dentures that are used for patients who have some existing teeth. Partial dentures can be anchored in the mouth or detachable.
3. Even if you have worn dentures for a while, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. The critical factor is whether or not you have enough bone to support an implant. Bone grafting can augment existing bone in some cases. Schedule an appointment with us to find out if you are a good candidate.
4. Regardless of your tooth replacement configuration—full dentures, partial dentures, or tooth implants—you still need to practice proper oral hygiene. Removable appliances should be cleaned daily.
5. Even if you have no natural teeth left, it’s important that you have twice-yearly dental examinations. Optimal oral health is a fundamental component of overall physical well-being. We’ll examine your mouth for indications of diseases like cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes. It is also a good idea for your dentist to examine the condition of your appliance.
Dr. Art Mirelez, one of the most experienced and skilled dental professionals in the Fresno area, has skill with many tooth restoration services. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
If you’re embarrassed by crooked teeth, a smile transformation can make all the difference. But it’s not just about looking younger and more attractive. A Six Month Smile from Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno can improve your life in ways you might not anticipate.
How can a smile makeover transform your life?
1. It shapes the way you are perceived by others.
A man or woman who smiles often and easily is generally regarded as a forward-thinking problem solver.
2. It elevates the mood in social settings.
When you spontaneously smile, it is contagious. It enhances the mood in any setting and eases tension when required.
3. You will feel more self-assured.
When you quit focusing on hiding your teeth, you have the power to focus on ways to obtain success in personal and professional pursuits.
Six Month Smiles are a system of clear braces that quickly and effectively straighten crooked teeth. Their name says it all. They’re an investment in yourself, and you will be excited with the results every day. Six Month Smiles are cost effective, and for most patients cost less than traditional orthodontic treatments.
If you have ever wondered what state-of-the art cosmetic dentistry can do for you, or have some dental problems, call Mirelez Wellness Dental to book a smile makeover consultation.
Each separate restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedure performed in Clovis can address a specific dental problem. For example, a porcelain veneer can correct the surface of a tooth that is discolored or slightly misshapen. Dental bonding can fill a small chip in an otherwise healthy tooth.
Some Fresno dental problems are more extensive and require a combination of procedures. Crown restoration combined with soft tissue grafts can restore a severely decayed tooth with the root exposed. A bone graft and dental implant can restore a missing tooth in an area where the jaw bone has receded. Orthodontia followed by tooth bleaching totally transforms a smile by straightening and whitening.
What is the difference between tooth bleaching and whitening? Whitening is the term for procedures which remove surface stains to restore the degree of natural lightness. Bleaching goes even further by lightening teeth beyond their natural shade. That’s right: you don’t have to resign yourself to yellow teeth even if they have been that way your whole life! The natural shade of your teeth, by the way, like your skin and hair color, is determined by genetics.
Some Fresno smiles have been gleaming for years by regular whitening. You can maintain the whiteness of your teeth just as you maintain your fitness level. (Of course it is a lot easier to make a quick visit to your Fresno dentist once a year for whitening touch-ups than sweating in a gym several times a week!)
We live in an age where severe dental problems can be permanently corrected. You don’t have to participate in a TV makeover show in Hollywood to access these premium cosmetic dental procedures. They are available right here in Fresno, Medera and Selma. Art Mirelez has the same advanced training and extensive experience as the dentists who keep the smiles of famous actors and musicians camera-ready.

Hopefully you are one of many health-conscious Fresno residents who is finding ways to get outside or to the gym and get moving. There has been an explosion in the variety of activities offered by personal trainers, all-purpose Fresno gyms, specialty facilities, and CA – California recreation departments in recent years.
With all these exciting ways to exercise becoming commonplace, people in the Medera, Selma, and Oakhurst areas may not be aware of the tooth risks associated with them.
I’m Dentist Art Mirelez, a concerned Fresno dentist and fitness enthusiast, and I want to talk to you today about mouth protectors.
You might think that mouth protectors are only for ultimate fighters and football players, but actually mouth guards can and should be used during any activity where a blow to the face is possible.
This includes many common sports such as pick-up basketball games, and volleybal, and bicycling. When you have a properly fitted mouth protector, you can prevent broken or lost teeth as well as lip, tongue, and jaw injuries.
Mouth protectors come in three main types: stock, boil and bite, and custom-fitted. The stock mouth protectors are pre-formed and ready to wear. Unfortunately, they rarely fit well. You can find boil and bite mouth protectors at sporting goods stores in the Clovis area. They are to be softened in water and then formed to your mouth (make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions). Custom-fitted mouth protectors can be made by your Fresno dentist to make sure you have a perfect fit.
The soft tissues that line your cheeks and lips are especially susceptible to injury when you have braces or fixed bridge work, not to mention the damage that can be caused to the orthodontic appliances themselves. For these reasons, a mouth protector is extremely important for Clovis patients undergoing these treatments. Your Fresno orthodontist may even suggest a mouth protector for your lower teeth as well.
If you have questions about sports dentistry in Fresno or any other dental issues, please contact my office and schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you.
Many of dentist Art Mirelez’s patients walk in for holistic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, or dental implants. Many for routine checkups and cleanings. Most really want to know if they are brushing properly. Having patients come for treatment and leave with questions answered – from which toothpaste to buy to proper tools and techniques – is our business. At Mirelez Wellness Dental we are all about educating our patients. Sometimes life is as easy as 1-2-3.
1 Soft Bristle Toothbrush Gentle brushing will accomplish the same results as hard bristle brushing without the abrasive damage to gums and gum line. There is never a good reason to use hard or medium bristle toothbrushes. Better yet, wet the soft bristle toothbrush to be sure the bristles are pliable before brushing.
2 Minutes of Brushing and Flossing Split the mouth into fourths and spend a good 30 seconds in each quarter. Hit the chewing surfaces, the inside surfaces, the outside surfaces and gently massage the gums. Be sure to address the far side of the back tooth that is never visible but can collect food and allow decay to begin. Take two minutes to floss after brushing in the evening to remove any remnants the toothbrush couldn’t coax out and to clean any beginning buildup. You have approximately 32 teeth and 32 gaps to floss clean. Two minutes should do the trick, but adding an extra minute for good measure can’t hurt.
3 Times a Day Brushing after every meal should remain the goal. This is difficult for many who are not home for the midday meal. To achieve amazing dental hygiene, brushing is priority one. There are as many toothpaste choices out there as you have teeth; without consistent brushing and flossing, those teeth are facing sure destruction. Don’t misunderstand, toothpaste is essential. Toothpaste acts as the vehicle that collects the debris, keeps the bristles pliable, fluoridates the mouth, freshens the breath and a myriad of other side jobs. But after every meal, gently removing food debris prevents breakdown on precious tooth surfaces. Even if you don’t use toothpaste after lunch, a quick brush can keep your teeth free of buildup.

Unusual situation, needed repairs to an implant. Dr. Miralez and the whole staff went out of their way to be sure to address some issues which could have been dangerous if left untreated. This practice always endeavors to provide the best for their patients.
My experience was great. They were very nice and gentle and they would also let you watch T.V. while they work on you. Also, they would always greet you with a smile.
I am completely happy with my experience. Even though I have moved to Carmel, I continue to drive to Fresno because of the friendly staff and excellent service.
A friendly and enjoyable experience. This office is the best. They strive to provide something beyond ordinary and elevate it all to extraordinary.
