If your teeth do not look their absolute best, or you are looking for a simple way to rejuvenate your smile, porcelain veneers may be right for you. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells, individually crafted and placed on the front surfaces of teeth to conceal a wide variety of cosmetic flaws. Custom-fabricated porcelain veneers placed by Dr. John Rink can give your appearance a dazzling, youthful-looking boost. Currently one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are often preferred for their quick, painless, and comprehensive results. To find out more about the benefits of veneers, contact our Charleston practice today and schedule your consultation.

Porcelain veneers can enhance the symmetry and brilliance of your smile.

Putting the Finishing Touch on Your Smile

One of the reasons thousands of people turn to veneers is because they are so versatile. By covering a tooth, veneers can effectively overcome a number of aesthetic imperfections, such as:

Porcelain veneers can be used to enhance a single tooth, a few teeth, or all the anterior teeth that show when you laugh and speak. Veneers can also be easily combined with other dental treatments. In fact, veneers are often part of a full mouth reconstruction or smile makeover that addresses all of your oral health and aesthetic needs.

Same-day Fabrication and Placement

Porcelain veneer production and placement is generally a simple process, but Dr. Rink’s streamlined treatment plan offers the ultimate in patient convenience. Using an innovative CERC® machine in the office, he can custom-craft your veneers and place them in one easy visit. First, digital, wax-less impressions are taken of your teeth, and the information is fed directly into the CERC® machine. Your veneers will then be carefully fabricated to match the shade and shape of your natural smile. You can wait in our office and read, check your email, or even doze off while your veneers are made. For patients who are having several veneers fabricated, this process can take a couple of days, and a second office visit may be required.

When your veneers are finished, a slight alternation or light etching will be made to the teeth depending on the type of veneers you choose. The veneers are then bonded to your teeth. Once finished, your veneers will be fully functional, and you can return to your everyday activities confident in your newly improved smile.

A Long-lasting, Bright Smile

Veneers can be cleaned just like your natural teeth. With proper at-home care and professional cleanings, veneers can last for years. Another fantastic advantage of choosing porcelain veneers is that they are stain resistant. They will not discolor or tarnish from eating or drinking darkly colored foods. Their enduring, bright appearance is another reason why they are a great long-term investment in your smile and sense of self.

Ultra-thin Prep-less Veneers

Many of our patients are good candidates for prep-less veneers, which offer a unique set of benefits. These veneers are made of ultra-thin shells and are placed without little to no need to alter each tooth. This means that patients can reverse the procedure if they wish in the future, and not need a restoration to strengthen the tooth and maintain its appearance.

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
