Porcelain Veneers

An excellent alternative to crowns, porcelain veneers and ultra-thin veneers, such as Lumineers®, offer dramatic and effective ways to change the color, size, and shape of teeth. Veneers are ideal for masking stains, closing gaps, correcting misalignment, and restoring worn teeth. Empress porcelain veneers and other porcelain veneers offered to South Carolina patients from Charleston, Hilton Head, and Myrtle Beach are custom designed to slide over the teeth, so patients can expect their smile to look incredibly natural and radiant. Long lasting and conservative, porcelain veneers have gained immense popularity in Charleston for their realistic appearance and their ability to resist staining.

Find out more about the beautiful porcelain veneers available at our Charleston practice at our porcelain veneers page, here. Or you can visit our smile gallery page to view smile makeovers that feature porcelain dental veneers.

Ultra-thin and PREP-LESS Porcelain Veneers  

In addition to traditional porcelain veneers, we offer ultra-thin, minimal prep and prep-less porcelain veneers as another option for enhancing the appearance of discolored, chipped, and misaligned teeth. Ultra-thin, minimal prep and prep-less veneers are made from a unique porcelain composite that can be as thin as 0.2 to 0.3 millimeters - about half the thickness of traditional veneers. As a result, the teeth receiving ultra-thin, minimal prep and prep-less veneers do not necessarily need to be reduced in size in order to make room for the porcelain, thereby leaving much or all of the original enamel intact. This makes them an excellent option for patients with badly damaged enamel or sensitive teeth. Without drilling or anesthetic shots, the process of placing ultra-thin, minimal prep and prep-less veneers is faster and far more comfortable than the traditional method.

Schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Rink to determine whether ultra-thin, minimal prep and prep-less porcelain veneers are right for you.

Opalescence® Boost Teeth Whitening System

To help restore bright, gleaming smiles, Dr. Rink performs teeth whitening with the Opalescence® Boost System at his Charleston office for patients from Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, and all over South Carolina. Opalescence is a fast, easy in-office teeth-whitening procedure that takes approximately two hours to complete. With the system, a hydrogen-peroxide gel is carefully applied to teeth. In-office teeth whitening at our Charleston practice is quick and comfortable, and results are immediate. It will not harm your teeth, gums, or dental work. For more information about in-office teeth whitening with Opalescence, contact our Charleston office today.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

As one of the most effective and popular cosmetic dentistry solutions available to patients from Charleston, Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, and all over South Carolina, the take-home teeth whitening kits available at our Charleston practice allow patients to brighten their smile in the privacy of their own home. The duration and frequency of the teeth whitening treatment will vary depending on the severity of the discoloration. During a teeth whitening consultation at our office, Dr. Rink will be available to help patients determine what type of teeth whitening treatment is appropriate for their needs.

Gum Contouring

Even when teeth are healthy and straight, many patients are dissatisfied with how their gum line affects their smile. Too much or too little tissue can leave a smile uneven. To help frame your teeth with a more symmetrical gum line, Dr. Rink provides gum contouring surgery. With this simple, in-office procedure, patients can receive an improved smile after a single appointment. While primarily a cosmetic procedure, gum contouring surgery can also help recover tissue damaged by periodontal disease.

Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as caps, function as natural teeth by fitting over badly worn or decayed teeth that cannot accommodate a filling. Dental crowns provide support to damaged teeth while also restoring functionality and esthetic balance. As with inlays and onlays, our new CEREC AC technology allows us to restore damaged teeth with porcelain dental crowns in just one appointment. Fast, easy, and beautiful! Contact Dr. Rink today to find out more about the porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers available at our Charleston practice, and visit our smile gallery page to view smile restorations with porcelain dental crowns.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an easy, quick, and cost-effective way to touch-up minor tooth imperfections. Using a putty-like resin, bonding can improve the appearance of discolored enamel, repair chipped or cracked teeth, close spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth, change tooth shape, and protect exposed portions of tooth roots. Unlike crowns or veneers, dental bonding does not have to be fabricated and customized at an off-site lab. The material can be applied and molded in the office during one visit. Anyone who is interested in minor cosmetic touch-ups can usually qualify for the procedure.

Patients who are interested in straightening their teeth but are unhappy with the prospect of metal braces can take advantage of Invisalign®. Rather than realigning a patient’s teeth with metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands, Invisalign® treatment uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays called aligners. Comfortable and discreet, these aligners are worn constantly throughout treatment, gradually shifting a patient’s teeth into the ideal position over a period of 12 to 18 months.
