What’s Included in a Smile Makeover?

With the start of a new year upon us, you might be thinking about how you want to improve yourself and your life in 2023. If you’re not currently happy with the appearance of your smile, that’s a great place to start.

With sparkling white, symmetrical teeth, you know you can put your best face forward — you can walk confidently into a room, knowing you’ll make a great first impression. Doesn’t that sound appealing?

If so, it’s time to talk to Dr. Sujay Trivedi and Dr. Michael C. Westcott about a smile makeover. Here at Family Dental Care in West Palm Beach, Florida, our team tailors your makeover to meet your specific cosmetic goals. That means we can address deeply stained and discolored teeth, gaps in your smile, cracks, chips, and so much more. Here’s what you should know.  

Tailoring your smile makeover

Your smile makeover is unique to you and your cosmetic goals. As a result, this process starts with a thorough dental exam and a conversation. We talk with you about what changes you’d like to see as well as your top priorities for your teeth, so we can personalize a treatment plan just for you.

This personalized approach makes all the difference. Let’s say you want one or two veneers to cover a cracked tooth or fill in a gap in your smile. You also want to whiten your teeth to get a brighter smile. If you get your veneers first and then whiten your teeth, the color won’t match. Instead, you should get tooth whitening first so your veneers can be color-matched to your new, more dazzling smile. 

Here at Family Dental Care, Dr. Trivedi and Dr. Westcott take all of your goals and priorities into consideration to create a smile makeover plan that delivers ideal results. To get an idea of what to expect, you can explore our smile gallery

Components of most smile makeovers

While we personalize each smile makeover, many people include one or more of the following cosmetic treatment solutions:

Teeth whitening

Over the years, our teeth often become dull and discolored. While store-bought whitening kits are one solution, they can damage your enamel if you’re not careful. 

Fortunately, that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with yellowed or stained teeth. With professional teeth whitening, we can get your teeth brighter than store-bought kits can — and we can lift stains and whiten your teeth without damaging them in any way. 


With a veneer, you get a thin layer of porcelain bonded to the front of your tooth. That means it can hide cracks and chips, lengthen teeth that are too short, fill gaps between teeth, or even correct minor crookedness. 

If you have individual teeth that bother you, we can apply veneers to those particular teeth. We also offer full sets of veneers to completely transform your smile. 


Do you live with a damaged tooth? If so, a dental crown may be the right solution. A crown is a protective cap that goes over a damaged tooth. Not only does this protect it but because we color-match the crown, it gives you the appearance of a healthy, natural tooth. 

We can also use crowns to support a dental bridge, or a replacement “pontic” tooth that fills any gaps in your smile quickly, effectively, and without the need for surgery.

Dental implants 

If you do have missing teeth, dental implants can be an ideal smile makeover solution. An implant is an artificial tooth root that’s surgically anchored into your jawbone. Its exposed post is capped with a natural-looking porcelain crown.   

Strong, stable, and permanent, dental implants are one of the most popular offerings of cosmetic dentistry and an excellent option for tooth restoration. If necessary, bone grafting can help you attain adequate jawbone density for dental implant surgery.
