  • Everything I have had done at Premier Smile Center has been top-notch. The treatment I received was thorough, precise and extremely professional. I never felt like just another patient because they took the time to listen to my concerns. They addressed my issues and we agreed on the treatment plan together.

    The staff is very friendly, warm and extremely knowledgeable. I felt relaxed and comfortable knowing I chose the right place to get the dental work I needed. Dr. Johnson is very humane and very knowledgeable, and she does amazing work. I like the friendliness and honesty of the whole practice. I was not confident with my smile, in fact I was very self conscious and rarely smiled. Premier Smile Center has changed all that. My smile is one of the things I like the most.

  • I was terrified to receive a root canal, but I knew it had to be done. After meeting with Dr. Johnson and Dr. Bui, I felt better about the procedure. They educated me on the process. I was comfortable and had no pain—which was my biggest worry. I love coming to the office. Everyone is super friendly and knowledgeable. The doctors and staff educate you on what they are doing and why it is needed.

    The dentist was a place I visited only when I desperately needed to, and now I’m in the office every few months. I don’t live near the office anymore, but as long as they’re there, I will be driving over to Fort Lauderdale. Thanks to Premier Smile Center, I now have healthy, pearly white and almost perfectly straight teeth.

  • When I first came to the practice, my teeth were in terrible condition. From the beginning to the end of my treatment, Dr. Johnson and her entire practice were outstanding, professional and extremely understanding of my needs. Dr. Johnson is honest and very hands-on, and the practice feels like a family and not a factory. Thanks to Dr. Johnson, I now have a great smile.

  • Coming to Premier Smile Center was a life-changing experience for me. Although I was a registered nurse, I had the worst teeth ever—a missing tooth, discolored teeth and a crooked smile. Dr. Johnson explained to me in detail how she could give me a beautiful smile. She and her staff have been truly supportive and non-judgmental about my teeth. Dr. Johnson is compassionate, understanding and a joy to talk to, and the staff are friendly, efficient and caring. They encouraged me to go on when I was feeling down, and now I can smile confidently.

    The treatment I received has greatly increased my self-esteem. I can smile and laugh unashamedly and join into a group conversation, and not just be a passive listener. I also have better health and nutrition. It is the best investment I have ever made for myself.

  • Premier Smile Center has always treated me like family, and my experience as a patient of Dr. Johnson’s has been nothing but satisfactory. Dr. Johnson is brilliant, and the practice is clean, friendly and professional. Before I came to the office, the condition of my teeth was depressing. As a result of my treatment, I have more confidence and less anxiety associated with a messed-up mouth.

  • Before coming to Premier Smile Center, I had not been to a dentist in some time. I needed some periodontal work done, fillings and wisdom tooth extractions. What initially struck me was the warm welcome I received from the front office staff, and I had virtually no wait time before I was greeted by Dr. Johnson. She was incredibly professional and explained everything she was doing as she conducted the initial exam. She made her recommendations and scheduled a return visit to repair some fillings and pull two wisdom teeth.

    What was truly amazing was that within 24 hours Dr. Johnson herself called to check on me and asked how my experience was. My wisdom tooth extractions went flawlessly, and I experienced very little bleeding and no pain during or after the procedure. Again, Dr. Johnson called me afterward to check how I was doing. I like Dr. Johnson’s warm and sincere concern for her patients, and I also like her professional staff. I am always impressed by the warm, professional nature of everyone in the office.

  • From the moment I arrived at Premier Smile Center over a year ago, Dr. Johnson and her entire staff have been amazing. Needless to say, anytime you have a cosmetic procedure done there will be nerves and lots of questions. Within minutes into my initial consultation, these concerns subsided. Unlike other dental practices I have been to, Dr. Johnson took her time and explained what I should expect from beginning to end with Invisalign. I continue to receive compliments on my smile every day. I love it! I have already and would recommend her again to anyone I know. A huge thank you to Dr. Johnson and the Premier Smile Center staff for making my experience fabulous!

Porcelain veneers are not one-size-fits-all, nor is there only one type of veneer out there. When you know about and understand the many available options, this cosmetic dentistry treatment can seem far more do-able for patients who may have otherwise written off the idea of a smile makeover. Find out what porcelain veneers are right for your new smile.

Types of Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can differ in composition or application, but they all do the same job – concealing and correcting cosmetic imperfections in your smile. Whether you have chipped, gapped, discolored, crooked, or otherwise flawed teeth, veneers can hide it all and give you a perfect, natural-looking grin. The only question is: What’s the best kind of porcelain veneer to get the job done?

  • Traditional prep veneers: These are what people usually think of when they think of veneers. The traditional version of this cosmetic dentistry treatment requires the shaving down of tooth enamel to make sure the customized veneers fit precisely and minimize any chance of bulky, fake-looking teeth. Though this not a reversible treatment, when done well by an experienced dentist, traditional veneers can be an amazing smile makeover.
  • Minimal prep veneers: Improving on the traditional veneer process, minimal prep veneers reduce and sometimes eliminate the need for the removal of any tooth enamel. Ultrathin veneers are made of improved, durable grades of porcelain that do not require any alterations to the natural tooth enamel.
  • No-prep veneers: True to their name, no-prep veneers require no preparation to the teeth before the veneers are put in place. A thorough cleaning and buffing to create a smooth surface is all the prep that’s needed, so your natural tooth enamel still serves as a strong backdrop to the super-thin, super-tough, no-prep veneers.
  • Chairside veneers: Chairside veneers are also referred to as cosmetic bonding or dental bonding. Using a tooth-colored resin, minor structural or cosmetic improvements are made to teeth to perfect their appearance. Because this procedure is so speedy, there is no need to wait in between consultation and application appointments for veneers to be created in a lab. Bonding is often used to close gaps, whiten discoloration, and even be a finishing touch after Invisalign or orthodontics.

Are You a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Before a patient can undergo a veneers procedure, they must qualify for this cosmetic dentistry treatment. Above all, your mouth must be completely healthy, with no sign of gum disease or decay. You cannot build a new smile on a poor foundation, so if your Fort Lauderdale dentist discovers any problems during your exam, these will need to be addressed before the smile makeover can move forward.

At Premier Smile Center, Dr. Johnson offers a complimentary cosmetic consultation for patients who are interested in porcelain veneers. During this visit, you will undergo a smile evaluation, have all your questions answered, and find out which type of veneers are the right choice for enhancing your smile.

Get on the path to a new smile and a new you with customized porcelain veneers. Contact your Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Charmaine Johnson.
