    • 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!

    You want a straight smile. The only question is: What’s the best way to make it happen? With the many innovations available in cosmetic dentistry, you have several options. The two most popular choices for achieving a straight smile are Invisalign and porcelain veneers, but they are very different options – so how do you decide which is right for you?

    What’s the Time Commitment?

    Porcelain veneers typically take two visits to your Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist to complete. Your teeth need be prepared for the treatment, the veneers need to be customized and created by the dental lab, and then the finished porcelain shields will be bonded to your teeth for a permanent and instantaneous smile makeover. All you need to do is budget two to three dental visits into your schedule.

    Invisalign is a different type of commitment. You must wear the trays 20 to 22 hours a day. Treatment can last for an average of one year but this number will vary based on how complicated your case is and how much your teeth need to move. It’s necessary to take good care of the trays and see your Invisalign provider regularly – about every six to eight weeks – for a check-up and to collect new aligners. And, of course, at the end of treatment, some patients like to get a professional teeth whitening treatment for a complete smile makeover.

    What’s Your Budget?

    Cost, of course, is a major consideration for any cosmetic dentistry procedure. Typically, dental insurance does not cover aesthetic enhancements, but it may cover orthodontic treatment, depending on your level of coverage.

    You can expect that most of your payments will be out of pocket for both Invisalign and porcelain veneers, though there are always dental financing options that make both treatments affordable. Invisalign cost can be anywhere between $3,000 and $7,000, but this number will vary based on how complex your case is. Veneer cost can be comparable to Invisalign, or it could be more than double the price tag, depending on the type of material used to craft the veneers and how many you receive.

    How Is Your Oral Health?

    No matter what kind of smile makeover you want to pursue, your oral health must be in good condition. That means no cavities, no gum disease, no major issues. For any cosmetic dentistry to proceed, all problems need to be addressed first, especially in the case of veneers, which will cover teeth permanently. If the veneers are not placed on a solid foundation, they will not have longevity.

    For Invisalign, you need your teeth to be healthy too, but one of the goals of this procedure is to make teeth straight and strong so they can naturally be healthier. Invisalign fixes alignment, can minimize jaw problems, and can stop worn enamel and cracked teeth. Your teeth will be beautiful and tough.

    Final Considerations

    When it comes to correcting cosmetic issues, porcelain veneers are an excellent choice if you want to hide stains, discoloration, gaps, short teeth, oddly shaped teeth, and more. If you want to correct an overbite, underbite, misalignment, or overcrowding, Invisalign wins the day.

    For many people, appearance is the deciding factor between veneers and orthodontics – but Invisalign is not just any kind of orthodontics. It’s invisible. No one will notice the smooth, clear aligners on your teeth. You can correct your smile discreetly and permanently without dental work interrupting your daily life.
