    • 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!

    Invisalign trays work hard on their own, but sometimes they need a little boost to fit as snugly as possible and encourage both crowns and roots to shift into their new positions. Enter Invisalign attachments. Most Invisalign patients have these little dots strategically placed on the teeth to improve the speed and efficiency of their chosen alignment method.

    Here are just some of the facts to know about Invisalign attachments.

    1. They come in different shapes.

    Attachments can be squares, rectangles, triangles, or other shapes. The dots are made of tooth-colored composite filling material and bonded to the teeth for the duration of your treatment. They are all small and designed to be unobtrusive, but the kinds of attachments you receive will depend on the goal that is trying to be achieved. Sometimes the shape, angle, or size of a specific tooth needs extra help to force it into its proper spot.

    2. Location is strategic.

    It may seem like the attachments on your teeth are haphazardly placed because you may have one on a front tooth, another on a molar. They may be situated toward the bottom of a tooth or right in the middle. But each placement is very strategic so a tray can work most effectively.

    3. They can be annoying.

    Any Invisalign-wearer will tell you that even though they love their chosen alignment method, after a while it can sometimes be annoying. You simply don’t want to deal with it anymore. Unfortunately, you must press on, but you can take breaks from treatment when you eat meals and clean your teeth. The attachments, however, are on there for the long haul.

    Attachments are more visible than the trays because they do stick out a little and, if you don’t clean them carefully, food and bacteria can build up on them. They also make it a little more difficult to snap aligners into place because they must be very precise to get the dots into the spaces created just for them.

    4. Every tooth does not need an attachment.

    Your Fort Lauderdale Invisalign provider will determine at the start of treatment just how many attachments you will need to make your trays work best. Typically, not every tooth requires an attachment, and some may not be necessary for the entirety of your treatment.

    5. Adding an attachment is easy.

    There are no invasive steps necessary to get the composite buttons in place. The tooth is prepped as though for bonding, a template will be used to mark the attachment’s location, and the template will be filled and cured to ensure that the small dot is in the proper place. Removal of the dots requires light buffing and nothing more. Eventually, you’ll forget they were even there.

    6. Attachments make Invisalign possible for more people.

    Some people have been told that Invisalign could never work for them, that their alignment issues are too complicated, but this orthodontic alternative is possible for more people because of attachments. Those tiny, silly shapes help trays achieve tooth movements that might otherwise have been impossible.

    Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

    You’re not destined to have attachments if you get Invisalign. Some people don’t need the bumps at all. Don’t let attachments discourage you from considering Invisalign. This revolutionary treatment has created millions of beautiful, straight smiles for so many adults. Find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Charmaine Johnson, Fort Lauderdale Invisalign provider at Premier Smile Center.
