    • 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!

    Sensitive teeth can be temporary, simply the result of biting down wrong on something or getting something stuck in your gums. Some people, though, live with sensitivity day in and day out and they don’t know why their teeth are causing them such discomfort. With the right dental care and diagnosis, you can get the repairs you need to manage and stop tooth sensitivity.

    1. Teeth Grinding

    Teeth are powerful and strong. They are meant to bite and crush food into manageable bits that you can swallow and digest. Teeth, however, are not meant to press against each other with maximum force. When this happens – usually because a person unconsciously grinds and clenches their teeth – it can lead to series dental damage. Along with worn tooth enamel and compromised dental work and broken teeth, you can develop sensitive teeth. A customized mouthguard can stop this problem in its tracks.

    2. Receding Gums

    Receding gums are often the result of teeth grinding, but there are plenty of other reasons gums pull away from tooth enamel, including:

    • Brushing your teeth too hard
    • Tartar or plaque buildup
    • Gum disease
    • Trauma to the gum tissue
    • Misalignment
    • Tobacco use

    Whenever your gums recede and show more of your teeth, they reveal sensitive parts of your tooth that are meant to stay below the gumline. This exposure can lead to incredible sensitivity.

    3. Hormone Fluctuations

    There are certain times in a woman’s life when her oral health is at risk of developing problems, all because of hormone fluctuations. Right before a woman’s period, estrogen and progesterone levels rise, which can cause the gums to become sensitive, red, and swollen every month.

    The changes in a woman’s body during pregnancy can lead to pregnancy gingivitis, when the gums become tender and bleed easily. Getting dental care while expecting is incredibly important to prevent this condition from affecting your baby’s health too.

    4. Overuse of Whitening Products

    It’s tempting to head to the dental care aisle when you want to whiten your teeth. You want a quick fix and hope to find it in the shape of a gel, toothpaste, whitening strip, or otherwise. Products like these often deliver mediocre results and, if they do work, many people are tempted to use them more than recommended. Overuse of over-the-counter whitening treatments can cause extremely sensitive teeth. Sometimes, the composition of the products themselves is enough to cause irritation.

    If you are determined to whiten your smile, consult with your Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist about which treatment is right for you. Whether it’s customized professional teeth whitening or personalized porcelain veneers, you can get whiter teeth without any discomfort.

    5. A Cavity

    Sensitivity may seem like it’s occurring in the gums alone, but sometimes the discomfort you feel is emanating directly from a tooth. More specifically, the pain and sensitivity may be coming from a decaying tooth.

    If your dental care has not included a teeth cleaning and digital x-rays recently, be sure to prioritize this oral health care, especially if you are experiencing a dental problem. Your dentist has the knowledge and tools to make your problem go away and stop the sensitivity from returning.
