    • 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!

    first day of invisalign fort lauderdale dentist

    When you begin Invisalign treatment, you might be surprised at how the trays feel, how you look wearing them, and what kind of feelings you’re experiencing. Know this: This treatment will take some adjustment time, but you can do it, and the result is worth it. Here is some of what you can expect on day one, and this knowledge will help you conquer every day after.

    Anticipate Some Discomfort

    When Invisalign trays are snapped onto your teeth, they fit snugly. This positioning can cause some discomfort and pressure, both feelings that are a good sign because this means the trays are working properly to align your smile. The first few days of wear could have you talking with a slight lisp, and you might feel like you have a bulky presence on your teeth, not to mention a constant dull ache. These feelings are normal and will fade. Until you switch to the next set of trays.

    Remember Your Freedom

    Any major change to your oral health is a big deal, but remember that Invisalign is temporary, and – especially – that you can take small breaks from the treatment whenever you need to. Removing the trays for meals and cleanings is required and if you just need a five-minute reprieve occasionally, you can take it. That makes every small and large milestone seem more achievable.

    Accept a New Look

    Yes, Invisalign is clear and practically invisible, but if you find yourself obsessing over how different your smile looks when the trays are in place, you are not alone. But also know that this perception is not permanent. This whole experience is brand new – after all, you don’t typically have a foreign object on your teeth for 20 to 22 hours a day, so your reflection will seem odd. But the aligners are clear and far less noticeable than metal braces. Give it a week or so, and Invisalign will blend into your life – and appearance.

    Be Patient

    Invisalign is a big deal. It’s a major commitment in time and energy. How you look, feel, and behave will all be affected by this orthodontic alternative. That isn’t a bad thing, it will simply take some getting used to. Be patient with yourself as you adjust to a different lifestyle. Invisalign will impact how you eat, when you eat, and what you eat. You will need to make time for extra cleanings and regular dental visits every six to eight weeks. Take this adventure one day at a time and it will pay dividends in the end.

    Appreciate the Conveniences

    Overall, the interference of Invisalign in your life is minimal. The inconveniences, like not being able to eat with the trays in place, are minor, and not that much of an inconvenience at all. Think about wearers of conventional braces who have brackets and wires adhered to their teeth – they can’t remove their braces and must endure the jabbing and poking of sensitive lips and cheeks. You don’t have any food restrictions and your trays are smooth and easy to wear.

    Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

    You might feel like a different person when you have your clear aligners in your mouth, but that’s a good thing. It prepares you for the amazing straight smile that is on the horizon. Find out from your Fort Lauderdale dentist and certified Invisalign provider Dr. Charmaine Johnson if you are a good candidate for this revolutionary treatment. Contact us to schedule a consultation at Premiere Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
