    • 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.

      Clayton
    • 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!

    There are several ways to replace missing teeth, but many patients lean toward a dental bridge as their chosen dental restoration. A natural-looking tooth replacement solution, dental bridges are a well-established dental repair that, with proper care and upkeep, can last for a lifetime.

    1. The Name Is Accurate

    A dental bridge does just what its name implies – forms a bridge between two teeth to fill in the gap that is between them. Metal clasps are attached to the teeth on either side of the space where a tooth used to be and they are anchored in place with customized porcelain crowns. A prosthetic tooth is carefully designed and attached to the bridge and everything is bonded firmly in place.

    2. Composition May Vary

    Dental bridges are typically made of porcelain fused to ceramic or porcelain fused to metal. Both repairs create a strong, natural-looking restoration that blends into the rest of your smile, so it is mostly your preferences, your Fort Lauderdale dentist’s recommendation, and your budget that will determine which option is right for you.

    3. You Need a Strong Foundation

    A lost tooth can occur for many reasons. A tooth may be lost to an accident or sporting injury, it may be extracted because it cannot be repaired with a root canal, or it may fall out because of advanced gum disease. Before any restorations can occur, all infections and other oral health problems must be cleared up so your mouth is healthy. If neighboring teeth are compromised in their own way because of gum disease or other infection, a bridge will not have the stability it needs to be successful.

    4. They’re Easy to Clean

    A dental bridge does not require any special upkeep to maintain its good condition. Simply brush and floss your teeth normally and see your Fort Lauderdale dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Do not bite down on hard foods or make a habit of eating sticky foods so that you don’t break or pull out the bridge.

    5. They Protect Your Appearance

    One missing tooth may not seem like a big problem, but it can turn into a major issue. If the space left behind is not filled, tissues will shift and neighboring teeth will float around to fill in the gap, leaving you with unnatural spaces between your teeth and a compromised bite. Depending on the location of the missing tooth, your face shape can change over time, sinking in on itself and affecting your entire profile.

    6. A Dental Bridge Isn’t Right for Everyone

    The location of your missing tooth, the solidity of your remaining teeth, and other factors will need to be taken into consideration before you can qualify for a dental bridge. If you are replacing a back molar and the bridge can only attach to one molar, the restoration may not be secure enough. Even if you aren’t a good candidate for a dental bridge, there is more than one way to replace a missing tooth, including dental implants and dentures.
