    • 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!

    Invisalign questions fort lauderdale dentist

    Potential Invisalign patients have plenty of questions about the treatment they’re considering. As it should be – Invisalign is a big deal, a serious undertaking, and a transformative, life-changing treatment. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked Invisalign questions.

    1. Do I have to wear Invisalign all the time?

    Yes, except when you eat. Invisalign must be worn 20 to 22 hours every day. That means all seven days of the week, for about a year, until your dentist tells you otherwise. The only time the trays should be removed is for meals and snacks and cleaning, and that should not total more than two or three hours a day. If this seems excessive, think about people who wear conventional metal braces – their brackets and wires are in place 24/7. Invisalign gives you a small window of freedom whenever you need it.

    2. What does it feel like to wear Invisalign?

    Wearing Invisalign will feel weird at first, and the trays will fit snugly, but you will get used to the sensation quickly. Like any treatment that moves your teeth into new positions, there will be some discomfort occasionally. The aligners will feel strange when you put in a fresh set because that indicates that your teeth are moving. The great thing is that the trays are smooth and slim so they’re not bulky in your mouth, don’t get in the way of speaking, and don’t snag your cheeks or lips like brackets and wires.

    3. How does Invisalign work?

    Invisalign works when your Fort Lauderdale dentist designs a customized plan for moving your tooth crowns and roots at the same time and when you, the patient, follow the rules for wearing the clear aligners. This is a combined effort but much of it falls on you. For Invisalign to consistently move teeth into alignment, the trays must be worn every day, trays and teeth must be cleaned, and checkups must be honored so your dentist can monitor your progress and provide you with the next several sets of aligners to keep the process moving.  

    4. Is Invisalign right for me?

    Only your Fort Lauderdale Invisalign provider can tell you whether you are a good candidate for this treatment. Some people have very complex misalignment that requires different types of cosmetic dentistry to correct. Other people have minor issues that may be ideal for a short version of Invisalign. Every patient is different and only after undergoing an exam and having digital images taken will you know for certain if Invisalign can transform your smile.

    5. How much does Invisalign cost?

    Invisalign cost typically falls between $3,000 and $7,000. Your Fort Lauderdale dentist will take into consideration the length and complexity of your treatment when determining cost, as well as the number of trays you will need to wear. You will have a concrete number before you say yes to Invisalign and this package includes the entire cost of your treatment from start to finish so you won’t encounter any financial surprises along the way.
