    • 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!

    Dental crowns are made to last but, just like every other type of restorative dentistry, accidents can happen, problems can develop, and you may find yourself needing a replacement for your original restoration. Can this issue be avoided? Sometimes. Here’s what you need to know if you’re wondering whether it’s time to replace a porcelain crown.

    The Life of a Dental Crown

    If you have a good oral hygiene routine at home and see your Fort Lauderdale dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning and checkup, your porcelain crown can last for decades. This dental restoration is designed for longevity, to stand up to wear and tear, and stay firmly bonded to your tooth.

    Unfortunately, complications can occur. Accidents, injury, biting down wrong on a food, or the age of a crown can all impact the strength and lifespan of a crown. Even if the restoration was put in place for cosmetic purposes only, it’s important to know that there may come a day when it’s time to replace a porcelain crown.

    Reasons to Replace a Porcelain Crown

    Conscious and unconscious actions can both affect the health of a dental crown. Some of the main reasons people need to have this restoration replaced include:

    • Teeth grinding: Grinding and clenching your teeth can be disastrous, leading to cracked and broken teeth, gum recession, and damaged dental work, including porcelain crowns. A customized night guard can stop this problem immediately but if damage has already been done, it may be necessary to replace a porcelain crown to prevent further complications.
    • Teeth whitening: You want to whiten your teeth, but you have a porcelain crown that matches the natural color of your teeth. The professional bleaching treatment is powerful but it isn’t the kind of formulation that can alter the shade of porcelain. In cases like this, you’ll need to talk to your dentist about replacing the crown to match your newly bleached tooth enamel.
    • Food choices: Do you have a weakness for Cracker Jacks? Do you chomp on ice regularly? What you eat and drink – especially energy drinks and soda – impacts the condition of your teeth and biting down wrong can break a crown in an instant.

    Signs Your Dental Crown Is Damaged

    If you are feeling like something might be wrong with a crowned tooth but you’re just not sure, the best thing to do is visit your Fort Lauderdale dentist, even if you just had a teeth cleaning or are due for one in a month or two. Don’t wait – it’s essential to get any potential dental problems taken care of in real time so they don’t become even more complex to treat.

    Here are just some of the signs that it might be time to replace a porcelain crown:

    • The tooth is obviously damaged.
    • You’ve been in an accident or taken a blow to the mouth.
    • You have a toothache where your porcelain crown is.
    • The gums around your crowned tooth are swollen or red.
    • There is gum recession around the tooth with the crown.
    • You have an uneven bite.
