If you are unhappy with your teeth or smile because of aesthetic imperfections or functional problems, the cosmetic and restorative dentistry services offered by our practice can help. In cases of cosmetically flawed teeth, Dr. John Rink may recommend the placement of porcelain veneers to conceal small chips, cracks, or stains. In more severe cases, missing or badly damaged teeth can be replaced with dental implants, with natural-looking tooth restorations to reinstate normal appearance, health, and function. Often, these cases are referred to as full mouth reconstruction plans.

We invite you to learn more about these options and browse before-and-after photos of our patients who have had dental implant restorations or porcelain veneers placed. Contact our Charleston office if you'd like to schedule an appointment to discuss either of these services with our doctors.

Porcelain Veneers

Our practice frequently uses porcelain veneers in our smile makeovers. Veneers are thin porcelain sheaths that are slipped over the surfaces of teeth to conceal aesthetic flaws such as chips, cracks, stains, or small gaps. Once placed, veneers create an even set of perfectly spaced, dazzling white teeth.

The porcelain veneer placement process is simple and convenient, thanks to the CEREC® one-visit restoration system. With digital technology, we take impressions of your teeth that are used to design your veneers. This information is sent to an in-office milling machine that fabricates your veneers. After your teeth have been prepared (meaning a small bit of tooth structure is removed), we place the veneers over your natural teeth and you are able to start enjoying your beautiful smile!

Dental Implant Restoration

Dental implants are used to replace natural teeth that have fallen out or need to be removed because of extreme damage or decay. A dental implant is a titanium rod placed in the jawbone and topped with an artificial tooth that sits on top of the gums.

Once placed, implants prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place and causing oral health problems. Drs. Rink and Ammons restore dental implants by attaching artificial teeth, usually crowns, to the titanium roots. Dental implant restorations look, feel, and function like natural, healthy teeth. Implants may also be used to anchor bridges or dentures.

To Our Wonderful Family of Patients:

Last night, my wife Connie and I enjoyed the most delicious take-out dinner from FIG restaurant. As always, the food was excellent; however, it was most satisfying to see the local restaurant, along with others, begin its comeback. Our resilient city feels like it is coming back to life—parks are opening and folks and families are enjoying the wonderful spring Charleston air. The Rink dental team is, too, readying itself for the next chapter of practicing dentistry as the community begins reopening its doors.

We are concentrating on continuing to advance our rock-solid foundation of state-of-the-art infection control. We were blessed to keep our dedicated and passionate team employed during the crisis, and have devoted the entire month of April to research, systematically developing, purchasing and installing the best additional infection control protocols and equipment available. We are ready. This month we will begin the process of a “soft opening” of our practice. What this means for our patients is a resumption of the same excellent restorative, esthetic, and preventive care in the safest and most secure environment available anywhere.

Additional safety steps will include asking our patients to wait for their appointments in their cars rather than in the reception area. We will ask that you take a moment to fill out a short questionnaire upon your arrival regarding your health and recent travels. We will take everyone’s temperature (including the team) with a forehead scanner as you enter the practice. We will clean and disinfect all touchpoints in the office in between each patient. We have procured the highest quality KN95 masks and face shields for the staff and have carefully researched and purchased the most advanced aerosol containment and purification systems available for the safety of all our patients. These are a few examples of how we have added additional layers of protection for your and our staff’s benefit.

Finally, I wholly understand that each one of you is an individual with specific desires, needs, and comfort levels. I want you to know that we are here to actively listen to you and to create the best environment for your emotional health. Some will be ready sooner than others to receive care again at our office. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and please know that our relationship with you and your family is our highest priority.

We look forward to reuniting with everyone but until that time it is our wish that you enjoy good health, good spirits, and peace.

To your optimal dental health,

- John F. Rink, DDS, AAACD and team
