    • 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 Braces FAQ

    Invisalign braces

    How does Invisalign work?

    Invisalign braces trays are designed to move a few teeth at a time until your entire smile is in alignment. Aligners are typically worn in two-week increments before being changed out for the next set of trays. Your Fort Lauderdale Invisalign provider will determine your entire Invisalign treatment plan from start to finish so you know what to expect – but it’s up to you to be committed to the responsibility of wearing Invisalign so the trays can do the work they’re intended to do.

    Do I have to wear Invisalign all the time?

    To be effective, Invisalign braces must be worn 20 to 22 hours a day, so while you don’t have to wear the trays around the clock, they should be worn for the bulk of every day. There is a great deal of freedom that comes with being an Invisalign patient because you can remove the trays as needed, unlike wearers of conventional metal braces. However, the only time you really should have the aligners out of your mouth is for meals, snacks, and cleaning your teeth.

    Can I skip wearing the aligners for a few days?

    Maybe you have a special occasion coming up, a major work event, or you just want a break. While you certainly could remove your trays, it’s not a good idea. Invisalign is designed to be wear almost constantly, and if you want the treatment to work effectively, you should never go for more than an hour or so without the aligners on your teeth. If you leave the trays out for days, you run the risk of compromising your treatment progress. Each set of aligners is designed to move certain teeth at certain times – you don’t want to veer from this schedule.

    How long does Invisalign braces treatment last?

    The average Invisalign wearer will be in treatment for about a year. Some patients have more complex issues that require more time, while others have minor problems that can be corrected in less than a year.

    What are attachments and will I need them?

    Attachments are very small, tooth-colored dots that can take various shapes and are bonded temporarily to the teeth to make the Invisalign trays fit better and move teeth even more effectively. Not every patient needs attachments but they are a common part of Invisalign treatment so there is a good chance you may require at least a few.

    Can I eat while wearing Invisalign?

    You should never eat with Invisalign braces in your mouth – not even a little snack. It will be tempting to take a bite or sip a drink, but these choices can stain or damage your trays. You should only drink water with the trays in your mouth and otherwise remove the aligners for all meals and snacks to keep them clean and fresh.

    What does it feel like to wear Invisalign Braces?

    Invisalign trays will put pressure on your teeth – that’s a good thing and means the trays fit properly and are shifting your smile as intended. Each aligner is smooth, which means it will not irritate your lips or cheeks, unlike metal braces which can poke and jab the tissues of your mouth because of their sharp wires and brackets.

    How much does Invisalign cost?

    Invisalign treatment can cost between $3,000 and $7,000, a total which will depend on how complex your case is and the number of trays you will wear. This number will be given to you at the start and you shouldn’t expect any cost surprises along the way unless there is a major, unexpected oral health issue that develops. Invisalign is an affordable treatment for most people with the help of creative financing options.

    Is Invisalign right for me?

    Invisalign has helped millions of adults and teens achieve the straight, healthy smile they’ve always wanted. Only your certified Fort Lauderdale Invisalign provider can tell you if this treatment is right for you.
