“I have been a patient of Dr. Harnois for over 30 years. He and the staff are wonderful. I had veneers removed and replaced without novocaine and only minor discomfort. I now have a beautiful smile – very happy.”
– I.P., 8/10/23
“I did a lot of research before making the decision to get veneers. I am happy to say Dr. Harnois is absolutely wonderful! He explained the total process. I felt absolutely no pain. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. I love my new look. I don’t know why I waited so long. Additionally, the staff is awesome!”
– V.B., 8-3-23
“The process of getting my new smile was so worth it. Dr. Harnois and the entire staff explained each step and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I feel much more confident about the way I look now, and I love my new smile.”
– Jennifer U., 8-16-23
“Dr. Peter Harnois and all the incredibly talented members of the team have done a fantastic job at improving my dental health and appearance. Jackie, Kathy and Heather have taken great care of me.”
– David S., 8-9-23
“I had implants for years and I was never satisfied with them. I literally cried tears of joy when I first saw my new Lumineers. They were perfect! The service at Hinsdale Dentistry is unbelievable. Highest recommendation!!”
– S.S., 6-21-23
This patient’s smile required a more complex approach to combine S.S.’s existing crowns (paired with implants) with new veneers and ensure everything blended naturally. They also had a single crown on a natural tooth to consider. Dr. Harnois seamlessly incorporated the new veneers with the existing work to produce a natural-looking result that the patient loved. Know that if you’re facing a complex restorative case, you can receive the full spectrum of care in our office. This doesn’t necessarily mean removing or redoing prior dental work – we will always take the approach that preserves your teeth and fits your priorities.
“I wanted a perfect smile and I got it. Dr, Harnois puts you at ease. He thoroughly answers your questions and gives you the results you want. Run, don’t walk. He’s the best!”
– Jackie G., 5-17-23
We do everything possible to deliver our patients the best possible results – and sometimes that extends beyond veneers. Jackie’s case was a special one. In addition to Lumineers, Dr. Harnois performed laser gum surgery to even the gumline and provide the right foundation for Jackie’s new smile. Esthetic smile design is all about balance – including the gums. We make the process as simple and patient-oriented as possible with our painless Biolase water laser. The only laser that doesn’t cut using thermal ablation, it provides a comfortable experience with accelerated healing to follow. This process was completed at Jackie’s first appointment, so when Dr. Harnois placed her final veneers, her even, glowing smile was balanced and complete.
“Dr. Harnois gave me the confidence to smile with my teeth again! I can’t thank him enough!”
“I am so happy I made this decision to rebuild my smile! Now I smile wide and often :)”
“When I knew I was ready to transform my smile, I did significant Lumineers research. Both my own research and the recommendations of other doctors showed that Dr. Harnois was far and away the best choice. The experience was excellent. Dr. Harnois had a natural ability to anticipate my questions and needs. I was guided through the process with ease and felt comfortable every step of the way. My friends could not believe how natural my smile looks now, thanks to Dr. Harnois’ work. What a change!”
“Dr. Harnois did a great job with my teeth. He walked me through every step as he performed the work.”
“Thank you to Dr. Harnois and the team at Hinsdale Dentistry for recognizing a smile may take just a moment but the memory of that smile can last forever. Tetracycline robbed me of my smile. I will always be grateful to Hinsdale Dentistry for restoring that smile. Thank you for giving me a reason to smile every day!”
“Great experience, everyone is very very nice. Loved it.”
“Dr. Harnois and the entire team at Hinsdale Dentistry are fantastic. I had my issues with my teeth and they were all resolved with my Lumineers. I now have a beautiful, natural smile. They made the process completely comfortable and explained every step they took. 5 stars!”
“The Short Story: Get an appointment with Dr. Harnois and his team, your only regret will be not going sooner!
The Long Story:
About five years ago I had my first set of Lumineers put on by another dentist. Through that time, I had several issues to the point where the Lumineers needed to be replaced. Knowing I should get 20 years or so from the Lumineers I was upset to say the least.
I started searching for a new dentist and I came across Dr. Harnois. When I met Dr. Harnois, and I explained the issues to him he was so compassionate and understanding of my situation. Dr. Harnois is an amazing blend of the artistry and the science of dentistry. The combination of these skills allows him to provide patients with a smile that looks so natural.
Having gone through this twice now I can tell you that Dr. Harnois has the years of experience needed to make your smile look fantastic, his skills are of the highest quality, he is extremely detail oriented, and he keeps pace with the latest dental technology and procedures to deliver consistently great results. If that’s not enough Dr. Harnois has a great bedside manner as well.
During the Lumineers process I had the pleasure of working with Donna, Jackie, Laura, and Cathy and they all share that same amazing bedside manner that Dr. Harnois has himself. Dr. Harnois and his team take a premium approach towards patient care, answer any questions you have, and will put all your concerns or fears to rest. Again, get an appointment with Dr. Harnois and his team, your only regret will be not going sooner!”
“Very good work, it was very easy and predictable. Dr. Peter and the team answered all of my questions; Donna was so helpful with all of my appointments, Jackie and Cathy were so kind and gentle chairside. I would recommend Dr. Peter and his Lumineers team for anyone who wants a beautiful, natural smile.”
“My Lumineers look natural and the final product came out to look like my teeth, only a better, flawless version.”
“I had anxiety. Dr. Harnois explained everything!! He has a soothing voice. I love my teeth!”
“I had a bad set of veneers done at another Chicago area dentist’s office and they were horrible! Dr Harnois to the rescue! He was fantastic to work with and we redesigned my smile. He has been doing this a while and it shows. He walked me through every step of the process and I was involved in every decision- LOVE them!”
“Dr. Harnois really takes the time to explain every option and step to make me comfortable. The process was so smooth with just 2 visits and I am thrilled with the final results. I really appreciate someone so dedicated to his craft, and the results show this. Thank you to Dr. Harnois and the wonderful staff for helping make this a great experience.”
“My wife had veneers done and I decided that because she looked so good and she was so happy, that it was time for me to be that happy too. The process was so easy and after the 1 month “trial” veneers it was time to put on the real deal veneers. I walked out so happy and excited that my smile finally looked normal and now I could hold a happy conversation and smile for real again. The boost of confidence is priceless. I would recommend Hinsdale Dentistry to all my friends.”
“Exceptional experience, results are better than I ever expected. I cried happy tears!”
Nicole wanted to transform her smile for her wedding. She told Dr. Harnois that he was the only one she trusted to bring her perfect smile to life, so that she can smile with confidence as she walks down the aisle.
“Dentistry has always been intimidating, but from the moment I met Dr. Harnois and team I was put at ease. Everyone is so friendly, and Dr. Harnois is so knowledgeable. He absolutely changed my life. Choosing Hinsdale Dentistry is one of the best decisions I have ever made!”
Ryan’s dad was looking for a solution for his son’s worn down teeth. When looking at Hinsdale Dentistry’s website, he learned about Lumineers. He saw that Lumineers could not only give his teenage son his smile back, but would also strengthen his teeth.
“Everyone was very respectful and did everything in their power to make sure my teeth were perfect!”
“I grind my teeth at night and have been wearing them down over the years. I also wanted to avoid Invisalign, and I was a candidate for these non-invasive Lumineers. I chose Lumineers over traditional veneers because I did not want my teeth drilled down and damaged. There was none of that with my Lumineers procedure! I sought out the best dentist I could locate and found Dr. Peter on Google. The office was wonderful. Everyone was so kind and gentle. All my questions were addressed and answered. One of the best parts about this Lumineers system was that Dr. Peter placed upper and lower temporary Lumineers that I wore for a month while my permanent ones were being made. They were bonded on and it allowed me to test drive both the shape and the shade to make sure the end result would be exactly what I wanted. Dr. Peter restored my tooth length and straightened out my teeth esthetically with the Lumineers – no Invisalign necessary. I could not be happier with the end result. Not only did Dr Peter give me back my youthful smile length, but also straightened and strengthened my upper and lower 16 teeth! Dr. Peter and the entire Hinsdale Dentistry staff are the best!”
“After doing tons of research regarding dentistry, I was lucky enough to find this awesome dentist. He did such a great job with my teeth than I could ever imagine was possible. I’m blessed that our paths crossed. Thanks for doing such a great job on my teeth!”
“Expert service, informative and fast. Completely satisfied.”
“My experience here was wonderful, everyone was very friendly and I love my new teeth!”
“My good friend Dr. Karen took a Lumineers course from Dr Peter. Apparently he trains dentists in North America how to properly design and place Lumineers. She said he was the expert in this country. I badly needed help and he gave me the smile of a lifetime.
He placed a temporary set of Lumineers, called a Trial Smile, so I could test drive the result and make any needed changes. Then the lab gave me exactly what I had requested and approved with my temporary Lumineers. I could not be happier. Dr Peter made it easy, painless and fun. All my friends and business associates cannot believe how good I look.”
“Dr. Harnois and his staff are wonderful!!! From the moment you walk through the door, you feel comfortable and at ease. My smile is now very simply perfect after decades. Thank you so much!”
“I went to Dr. Harnois for a second opinion regarding some rather extensive work I would need done. I decided to have Dr. Harnois perform the work because he made me feel more comfortable than my previous dentist. I was very nervous beforehand and spoke to him and his staff about my fears. They reassured me that my fears were normal for the amount of work I was having done and my age, and they explained the entire process of what exactly would take place. They were even able to schedule fewer but longer appointment times to get the work done, which is what I was more comfortable with. After Dr. Harnois completed our first appointment, I felt totally at ease and confident about the rest of my appointments. The office has a personal and relaxed atmosphere and he and his staff were engaged with me and how I was feeling at all times. My new teeth are brighter and sized correctly, but they still look natural. My experiences at their office have been so positive that I have now made Dr. Harnois my primary dentist. I sincerely recommend seeing Dr. Harnois for an excellent experience.”
“I had the spaces filled in between my 4 front teeth years ago. It kept chipping, staining and cracking and my dentist had to keep repairing it. Finally, I sought a long-term permanent fix. After I did extensive research online, I realized I wanted a doctor who offered Lumineers as it is the only veneer system that does not harm your natural teeth.
A good friend of mine had Lumineers done by Dr Harnois and she said it was painless, easy and the best thing she ever did for herself. My final veneers are so natural, people can’t tell that my four front upper teeth are Lumineers customized to match my existing teeth. I love my smile now!”
“I have had crooked teeth all my life and couldn’t bear the thought of 2-3 years of full braces. Then my own boss told me about Dr Harnois and Lumineers. She’d had an amazing experience working with him. She also told me that I could test drive my new smile with a set of upper and lower temporary Lumineers at no additional charge. That would give me complete control for both the shape and the shade on my upper and lower smile makeover.
This was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I smile with confidence now and am so happy I did it. I recommend Dr. Peter and Hinsdale Dentistry to all my friends.
I love my upper and lower Lumineers and my teeth are naturally straight forever! All of this was done in 2 pain-free visits!”
“I am so happy that I did this and I am referring my friends to see Dr. Harnois so they can receive the same fantastic treatment.”
“Before I got my Lumineers, I was very self conscious of my teeth. They were stained and misshapen. Now when I smile I feel confident! I have gotten so many compliments on how nice they look. I am so happy with my decision to get Lumineers! Dr. Harnois and his team of assistants made me feel so comfortable and filled me in on each step of the procedure. Thank you Hinsdale Dentistry!”
“I love my new smile! My life is changed from today! Thank you Dr. Harnois. I am grateful!”
“I can’t recommend Dr. Peter Harnois and his staff enough. Having lived with tetracycline stained teeth since childhood, the dream of having a white smile finally became a reality thanks to Peter. The attention to detail, personal care and compassion at Hinsdale dentistry are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.”
“Dr. Harnois is simply the best. From my consultation to procedure, I felt comfortable, informed and in the best hands. My results surpassed my expectations, and I know that’s because of Dr. Harnois’ meticulous technique, knowledge and care. I wouldn’t trust anyone with my smile other than Dr. Harnois! Thank you for taking such good care of me and my teeth.”
“Wow! I love my new smile! Peter’s process was painless and easy. I look ten years younger. I’m glad I finally did this for myself!”
“I am so happy with the results. As somebody who has been afraid of the dentist and with the condition my teeth has been in, I did not think that I would ever be able to smile like this again. Everyone has been so good at making me feel comfortable that I have the confidence to smile again. Thank you so much. I was talked through every step and was made very comfortable. I am no longer scared of the dentist, and am happy with my new smile.”
“As a dental professional I am very particular about the dental work I do and I tend to focus on defects or abnormalities in a person’s smile. For many years I was unhappy with my own smile because I had teeth extracted as a teenager so that I could get braces to straighten my teeth. My smile has never been as broad and brilliant as I would like.
I met Dr. Harnois at a continuing education course he was teaching in charlotte, NC. As he presented the numerous cases of cosmetic veneers that he has completed, I began to think about what might could be done for my own smile. We discussed my particular case and a plan for me to travel to Chicago.
Dr. Harnois is so in tune with the minute details of his patients’ smiles that I felt I would never find anyone who cares more than he does. As a dentist myself, I feel like my expectations were set fairly high, but the result exceeded anything I had imagined! The changes are so natural and subtle that my coworkers are amazed at how it turned out.
I would recommend Dr. Harnois to anyone looking for a painless experience from a dentist focused on making your smile the best that it can be. I am proud to have my new smile and to be able to thank Dr. Harnois for the new confidence I have found.”
Kyle Greer DMD
“Wow that was quick. I was expecting a much longer process. And I thought there would be pain. But there was none. I can’t believe this was done in only two visits.”
“Before I got Lumineers, my teeth were discolored and blotchy. I tried at-home whitening treatments and nothing seemed to work. Then I found out about Dr. Harnois online and came in for a consultation. I was sold with the possibility of a beautiful smile and I definitely got it. The transformation was even better than I dreamed of. I can finally smile confidently.”
“When I walked out of my orthodontist’s office when I got my braces off, I left disappointed that there was still a gap. Today, I’m leaving Hinsdale Dentistry with the biggest smile I’ve ever had.”
“Dr. Harnois was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. He answered all my questions and concerns. He took extra time to make sure my Lumineers look perfect. I am very happy with the results. My teeth look very natural, which is exactly what I wanted.”
“Love my Lumineers! A fairly quick and painless procedure with wonderful results. I have a bright new smile!”
“Here’s what I love about Dr. Harnois and Hinsdale Dentistry. First, everybody is beyond friendly. They make you feel as though they’ve known you for a long time. Everybody from the receptionist (Jessica), to Dr. Harnois’ assistant (Sharon), went out of their way to make sure that I was comfortable, informed, and happy, and I really appreciated that. Additionally, their office is very modern and inviting!
Another aspect I love is that Dr. Harnois does a phenomenal job explaining everything he is going to do and why. You can tell that he truly cares about his patients. He’s the type of person that you feel like you can trust, someone who is going to make sure that the work he does is top notch and flawless. More importantly, he ensures that you are happy with the work he’s done. He’s a perfectionist, which is a great quality to have in a dentist who specializes in cosmetic work.
Ultimately, I made the decision to have a product called Lumineers placed and while it’s only been two short weeks, I am so happy I took this route. My smile looks natural, but more importantly, it FEELS natural. My teeth don’t look bulky, my bite feels no different than prior to having Lumineers placed, and I am getting compliments left and right on how amazing my smile looks. Dr. Harnois took such care, making sure my smile was just right and I really appreciated that.
I really could go on and on, but I’ll spare you from reading a novel. If you are looking to improve your smile, seriously, go pay a visit to Dr. Harnois. He is the best of the best and I’m certain you’ll love him as much as I do. It is one decision you won’t regret. And if you think of it…tell him Ashley sent you. ;)”
“My experience with getting my Lumineers was excellent. All appointments were made in advance and were accompanied by an explanation of what was going to occur at each. Most importantly, however, I insisted that my teeth look absolutely natural. For that to take place the Lumineers had to match the color of my lower teeth perfectly—and they do! I have received nothing but rave reviews. From family and friends that know I had Lumineers put on to strangers that do not, I have received nothing but compliments. I hear all the time that I have really beautiful teeth. Mission accomplished!”
Dear Dr. Harnois:
I took a chance and it worked out wonderfully!
My wife had been encouraging me for years to improve my looks by having my teeth capped. Never bothered me, but it bothered her. I didn’t like the thought of having my teeth ground down, as was done to her. So I saw an ad in a magazine (I never respond to ads for personal services), but you and your smile looked so assuring, I called to make an exploratory appointment. Of course, in the interim I did learn one of my contacts was your patient, and very satisfied with her veneers. You were so professional, and quite charming and reassuring, that I asked you to proceed. I feel great – and my wife says I look great too. Thank you for providing me with such a major life change (makes me feel 15 years younger), at quite modest a cost!
My husband cannot believe how happy LUMINEERS have made me. I can’t stop smiling! I never felt any discomfort and actually looked forward to my appointments; I love the relaxing atmosphere at Dr. Harnois’ suite. Dr. Harnois, you are the best! Thank you.”

“I choose Lumineers for my smile makeover because of its conservative nature. I didn’t even have to take an aspirin before, during or after the Lumineers placement. I feel great; my LUMINEERS feel like my natural teeth and look so much better. I fully trusted Dr. Harnois in my smile makeover. He has more experience in Lumineers than anybody in the country and educates and trains other dentist on how to properly place them. He also offers a warranty on Lumineers.”
Dear Dr Harnois,
”I smile and it looks so natural I feel like this is my natural smile………
It doesn’t look like I have veneers or anything else, my Lumineers aren’t big and bulky, they’re just absolutely fantastic. There isn’t a day that goes by, that someone somewhere doesn’t compliment me on my smile. Your smile is like your hair, if it’s beautiful than you are. You doing my smile over, has made me the happiest person ever, I am constantly smiling all the time; because, I now have beautiful teeth.
I can be more successful, with my new smile; my new smile just gave me a more complete look. And to think it only took an hour and a half, wow.
Had I gotten braces and worn them for two years, my smile still wouldn’t be this beautiful. Your staff is absolutely wonderful; your office is extremely comfortable; being able to watch television during the procedure just really made me more at ease. And before I knew it, you were finished.
I have thought about doing my smile a few years back, I’m ecstatic I chose not to at that time, because I needed to find you, to have someone that is so meticulous doing something as important as your smile is really crucial. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose you, I am more than happy with my results. I will never be able to thank you enough for making me, a new me, with a beautiful smile.”
Gracias very mucho,

Before and After INVISALIGN
My year-long journey with Invisalign has been a breeze. I finally have a smile I want to show off! I was always well-informed of every process before, during and after treatment. Never once did I leave the office with remaining questions. Appointments were painless even with my sensitive teeth!
The office is modern, clean and technologically advanced. I always felt as if the staff had my best interest in mind. I highly recommend Dr. Kowalczyk and the team at Hinsdale Dentistry.
