Cosmetic Dentist in Melbourne, FL

If stained, chipped, crooked, or otherwise unattractive teeth prevent you from feeling your best, then it’s time to consider a smile makeover. Cosmetic dentistry has advanced considerably over the last few decades. Using modern techniques and materials, we can completely transform a smile in just two or three visits. Dr. Chenet has over 25 years of experience as a general and cosmetic dentist and offers revolutionary dental enhancements, including CEREC all-ceramic crownsporcelain veneers, and Zoom! Whitening.

CEREC All-Ceramic Crowns

If a tooth is severely decayed, deeply cracked or broken, then the appearance of your smile is not only compromised but also the function of that tooth. Therefore, Dr. Chenet may recommend a dental crown to restore form as well as function. With CEREC, Dr. Chenet can design, build and place a new crown in one appointment. The system eliminates the dental lab and gives you back your full and healthy smile in just a matter of hours.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the best and fastest way for the cosmetic dentist in Melbourne to completely transform your smile. Made of high-quality dental porcelain, veneers are slim coverings that are adhesively bonded to the front side of teeth that show most prominently when you smile. They necessitate some alternation to the enamel surface of your teeth, so your smile will always require these coverings. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Chenet can conceal teeth that are chipped, broken or even slightly crooked so your smile is absolutely beautiful.

Teeth Whitening

For your convenience, Dr. Chenet offers both in-office teeth whitening as well as a take-home application. For the speediest results, choose Zoom! Whitening. This in-office system takes only about one hour and has the potential to make your smile up to eight shades brighter. A strong bleaching formula is applied to your teeth and activated with a special light.

For more gradual whitening that is just as effective, we offer our take-home system. With customized mouth trays, the bleaching gel we provide will stay in place against your teeth. After a couple of weeks you’ll see results that are equally as dramatic as our in-office application. 


If you have always wanted a straight smile, now you can get one without brackets and wires. Invisalign® uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth, giving you a discreet solution. You will enjoy several benefits that are not possible with metal braces for a convenient and nearly undetectable treatment. In as few as 12 months, you can have a healthy, beautiful smile that lasts.

With cosmetic dentistry, retaining your smile’s individuality is important. You deserve a smile that reflects your unique personality and style. Dr. Chenet creates custom designs to best achieve your goals. For example, we offer several kinds of teeth whitening, because we know every patient has different needs. Whether you’re visiting us for simple, one-visit improvements or more extensive cosmetic dentistry, we’ll ensure you leave our office with a smile that you’re proud to share.

Understanding the Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry

Even if you’d like to try it, you might worry cosmetic dentistry is too pricey. Fair enough – it usually isn’t covered by dental insurance, after all. Still, there’s no actual reason to fear. The cost of cosmetic dentistry is something Dr. Chenet and his team will help you navigate. More specifically, they’ll walk you through our differently-priced cosmetic services and some financing options. If you want to learn how that works, just keep reading or call our office.

Which Cosmetic Dental Service is Right for Me?

When a patient considers cosmetic dentistry, they typically want one (or more) of three things: whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or differently shaped teeth. That said, our cosmetic procedures vary in price and effect. You should thus consider their features before committing to anything. To that end, our treatments include:

  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening whitens your smile. In particular, it relies on a special bleaching gel to quickly remove tooth stains from your enamel. Despite its speed, though, this option has a moderate cost and only affects tooth color – it won’t change anything else.
  • CEREC Dental Crowns – Dental crowns are “caps” that protect teeth and enhance their appearance. Furthermore, our office’s CEREC crowns can be made and placed in just one dental visit. Unfortunately, their ceramic materials and crafting methods cause them to be pricey.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Veneers are thin, porcelain shells placed on the fronts of teeth. Dentists normally use them to hide smile flaws – chips, stains, cracks, misalignments, etc.  As such, they have a versatility that improves tooth color, shape, and position. However, that very feature makes them expensive.
  • Invisalign® Clear Braces – Using a series of aligner trays, Invisalign subtly and effectively aligns crooked smiles. In exchange, it’s a big financial commitment – the aligners usually cost around $3,000 to $5,000.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Be an Investment Worth Making

Without question, cosmetic dentistry is sometimes expensive. Still, it’s an investment that pays dividends with time.

You see, cosmetic dental work has priceless effects. One such result is that it boosts your confidence by offering a newly-transformed smile. That attitude change leads to a second benefit: strengthened bonds with friends, family, and others. Lastly, you can trust that a gorgeous grin will improve your job prospects. Taken together, all these perks will raise your overall quality of life.

How to Make Cosmetic Dentistry Affordable

True, dental insurance doesn’t usually cover cosmetic dentistry. Even so, other ways exist to make cosmetic work affordable. We at Dr. Chenet’s office happen to offer:

  • Dental Savings Plans – Our office’s savings plan can give you (among other things) reduced rates on cosmetic procedures, all for a low yearly fee.
  • Flexible Financing – Our practice works with CareCredit, a third-party financier. You could pay for treatment with monthly, low-interest installments through them. Consequently, covering cosmetic dentistry’s cost would be much more manageable.

If anything you’ve just read sounds intriguing, book a visit to our practice! Dr. Chenet and his team would love to beautify your smile in a way that fits your budget.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Are you unhappy with the way your smile looks in the mirror? If you’re struggling with one or more dental flaws, then cosmetic dentistry may be the solution you’re looking for. While you can be sure to enjoy numerous benefits from a smile makeover, it’s natural to want to know as much as possible before committing to any treatments. That’s why our team has collected and answered some of the most common questions Dr. Chenet gets about these kinds of procedures. Read on to learn more or give our cosmetic dentist in Viera a call today to schedule your initial consultation! 

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

The exact lifetime of your brand-new smile will mostly depend on the kind of treatment you undergo. Some provide longer-lasting results than others. For instance, professional teeth whitening is designed to brighten your smile with a quick and easy procedure. However, the results will typically last several months to a couple of years depending on how well you take care of your teeth. For more extensive cosmetic treatments, like veneers, you can expect to enjoy your dream smile for 15 years or more before needing to replace them. With Invisalign, as long as you wear your retainers afterward, you can enjoy straighter teeth for a lifetime. The best way to determine the lifespan of your cosmetic results is to consult your dentist.

Why Is Cosmetic Dentistry So Popular?

In the past, dentistry was mainly focused on preventing and addressing oral health problems. Due to modern techniques and advanced technology, the average person can maintain a much healthier smile. For this reason, more patients are free to prioritize the appearance of their pearly whites instead of only treating issues. Cosmetic dentistry is also much more affordable than before, and it offers various essential benefits to a person’s quality of life. A boost in self-confidence and improving first impressions isn’t something you can easily dismiss!

How Do I Choose a Cosmetic Dentist?

It’s important to remember that the American Dental Association (ADA) does not acknowledge cosmetic dentistry as a specialty. This means that almost any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist, which can make it challenging for people to choose a professional with the proper qualifications and skills. As you search for a cosmetic dentist in Viera, be sure to search for one with extensive education and experience, and who uses the latest dental technology. This will help you feel more comfortable and confident about undergoing treatment, and you can even consult the dental professional directly to understand what you can expect from your cosmetic results.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Covered by Insurance?

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t considered an “essential” treatment, so many dental insurance companies won’t offer coverage. While this means you’ll have to find another way to pay for your procedure(s), it doesn’t mean you’ll be left completely on your own. Our team offers alternative financing options to help make your dental care more manageable. You can save money with our Dental Savings Plan, receiving discounts on multiple services with just one flat annual fee. We also work with CareCredit—a third-party financier that can help break up the cost of your treatment into monthly installments with little to no interest. You’ll be able to upgrade your pearly whites without having to stress about breaking the bank!
