    • 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!

    4 Ways Invisalign Is Different Than Metal Braces

    Invisalign and metal braces both straighten teeth. Some patients are better candidates for one type of orthodontic treatment than the other, and some patients qualify for both. If you’re fortunate enough to be able to make a choice that suits your lifestyle, it’s important to know how Invisalign differs from conventional metal braces. It’s not just about looks. 4 ways Invisalign is different than metal braces are listed below….

    1. Invisalign Is Discreet

    Braces are not designed as a torture technique. They are not meant to disrupt a person’s life or make things difficult for you. However, there is no denying the visibility of metal brackets and wires and the convenience and discretion of Invisalign for adults or Invisalign Teen. These nearly invisible trays latch snugly onto the teeth and their thin composition allows them to blend right into your smile and not draw attention to themselves.

    You can go about your daily life – working, learning, parenting, socializing, exercising, and beyond – without worrying about Invisalign getting in the way. You’ll look the same the entire time your teeth are shifted into alignment – but your smile will look better and better as the weeks go by.

    2. Invisalign Doesn’t Require Rubber Bands

    Many people who have metal braces need to wear rubber bands about halfway through their treatment to address an overbite, underbite, or open bite. It’s not a terribly taxing responsibility, but it does require attention every day for weeks and sometimes months until the bite is corrected.

    Invisalign can correct a person’s bite without rubber bands. Attachments are the typical solution for difficult movements. These small, composite shapes are temporarily bonded to the teeth to force them in the proper direction so they are straight.

    3. Clear Braces Are Comfortable

    All types of braces deliver a small amount of soreness with every adjustment or new set of trays. This discomfort is temporary and usually lasts only a few days. The difference between Invisalign clear braces and metal braces is that Invisalign isn’t made of wires and brackets.

    Though today’s conventional braces are far smaller and more comfortable than decades ago, they are still made of metal and wires with occasional jagged edges. The soft tissues of the mouth – particularly the cheeks and lips – can suffer from unwanted jabs. Invisalign aligners are smooth and the lips slide easily around the trays so they don’t cause additional discomfort.

    4. Invisalign Doesn’t Negatively Interfere with Self-Esteem

    The goal for anyone who is straightening their teeth is to end up with a smile that’s aligned, bright, beautiful, and healthy. During the process of getting a new smile, however, you don’t want to feel like you’d rather hide your mouth. Though some people – usually teens – embrace metal braces as just part of their daily life, adults need additional options. Invisalign stays under the radar which means you won’t take any dings to your self-esteem and will feel better and better about yourself every day as your smile improves. Talk about a confidence boost.

    There are so many things that Invisalign and metal braces have in common, but there are also many ways that Invisalign stands out as a superior alignment method, especially for adults. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Charmaine Johnson at Premier Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale to discuss your eligibility for Invisalign, or your child’s eligibility for Invisalign Teen and learn about the 4 ways Invisalign is different than metal braces.
