Veneers Q&A

What are veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin coverings that look like the front side of a tooth. Dr. Hartman permanently seals veneers to the front surface of your teeth to cover cosmetic defects and improve the shape and color of your teeth. They’re made from porcelain, which looks just like tooth enamel and enables them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.


Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure because they significantly improve the appearance of your smile with a quick and minimally invasive procedure. 

How can veneers improve my smile?

Porcelain veneers cover the entire front sides of your teeth, giving Dr. Hartman the latitude to totally redesign your smile’s appearance. Some conditions Dr. Hartman can improve with veneers include:


  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Staining or discoloration that doesn’t respond to teeth whitening
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are widely spaced
  • Crowded or crooked teeth


Veneers can also make your smile look more symmetrical, even, or full.

What happens when I get veneers?

You start by having a consultation with Dr. Hartman to discuss your ideal smile and what you hope to achieve with veneers. If you want, you can bring in pictures of smiles that you admire to give Dr. Hartman a better idea of how you want your veneers to look.


Then, you pick a size, shape, and color for your porcelain veneers, and Dr. Hartman makes room for your veneers by removing a very thin layer of enamel from the front surface of your teeth.

Once he finishes preparing your teeth, Dr. Hartman takes an impression of your smile, sends it to a lab that fabricates your veneers, and fits you with a temporary set to wear in the meantime.

Within a couple of weeks, your veneers will be back from the lab, and you come back to Dr. Hartman for a second visit. He checks that the veneers look beautiful and feel comfortable, then permanently seals them to your teeth.
