    • 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!

    Dental Bridge

    dental bridge

    When it’s time to replace a missing tooth, many patients opt for the security and reliability of a dental bridge. At Premier Smile Center in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Charmaine Johnson and her team offer this natural-looking dental restoration to fill the hole in your smile and improve both the appearance and function of your teeth.

    What Is a Dental Bridge?

    A dental bridge does just what its name implies – creates a bridge between two teeth to fill a space in  your smile. If you have lost a tooth because of infection, trauma, or extraction, the dental bridge completes your smile so you can bite, chew, and speak with confidence.

    Bridges are typically comprised of metal clasps which are attached to the teeth on either side of the area where a tooth used to be. The clasps are anchored in place with porcelain crowns and a prosthetic tooth is attached to the bridge. Everything is bonded firmly in place for a complete restoration that looks natural and is minimally invasive.

    Dental bridges can be made of porcelain fused to ceramic or porcelain fused to metal. Your budget and preferences will determine which option is right for your oral health but the results will be the same no matter what: a strong, customized dental solution that blends in with the rest of your smile.

    The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

    If you have a molar that’s missing and its absence is not all that noticeable, you may be tempted to just let it be and not bother replacing it. This decision is a risky one. Every tooth in your mouth has several important jobs – along with helping you eat and speak, each of your teeth maintain a place in your smile and stimulate and support the jawbone.

    Choosing not to replace a missing tooth or teeth can result in multiple problems such as:

    Besides the oral health implications of missing teeth, you will also be self-conscious about your incomplete smile.

    Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?

    There are many reasons a person may lose a tooth, and it matters to your Fort Lauderdale dentist why your tooth is missing. If you have severe gum disease that has begun to cause tooth loss, you won’t be able to replace your teeth with dental bridges or any other restoration until the infection is cleared up and your mouth is healthy again.

    If you have had a tooth knocked out in an accident, a sporting match, or because of any blow to the mouth, your dentist will need to examine the area first to ensure the entire tooth has come out and there are no pieces remaining. Nearby teeth will also need to be checked for stability before recommendations about tooth replacement can be made.

    When a tooth is extracted because it is too decayed to treat with root canal therapy, the area will need to heal properly before any dental restoration can occur, but a dental bridge is likely to be a viable option.

    The location of the missing tooth will also affect whether you are a good candidate for a dental bridge. It may be necessary to consider other restoration options, like dental implants or dentures.
