Grand Island Cosmetic Dentist
Cosmetic dentistry procedures allow Dr. Steven Stec, Dr. CJ Stec and their dental team to makeover your smile—giving you a more beautiful, youthful look. Having a gorgeous grin also increases your confidence, and helps you make more social and work connections. We can use a variety of restorative and cosmetic dental options to make your enamel whiter, fix chips, cracks and gaps, straighten misalignments, and repair broken and misshapen teeth.
When you come to our Grand Island dental practice for cosmetic enhancement services, we work with you to create your ideal smile. We consider a number of factors when making treatment recommendations. The shape of your face, your coloring, your personality, and your smile desires all come into play when deciding your best cosmetic options.
Modern dentistry offers you more options to beautify your smile than ever before. Because Dr's. Steven and CJ Stec are committed to continuous training, they are qualified to perform cosmetic dentistry at this level of excellence. If you think your appearance and confidence could be improved with a nicer smile, we’ll be happy to talk with you about the many options now available. From Zoom! teeth whitening to porcelain veneers and Lumineers, we offer a full range of the latest cosmetic dentistry services.
Cosmetic bonding can repair minor flaws, and be used as fillings for small to medium cavities. Tooth-colored fillings look like a natural part of your tooth, making your smile more pleasant. Bonding is made from composite resins that are thinly applied to chips, gaps, broken teeth, cracks, and decay. Once Dr. Stec shapes the bonding to your tooth, he will smooth it and then cure the bonding with a special light. Your cosmetic dentistry service is complete when the tooth is polished.
Large cavities won’t benefit from tooth-colored composite resins. Porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays are better options for teeth that have a lot of decay or have received root canal treatments. Crowns restore teeth weakened by damage or by root canal therapy. Inlays and onlays are partial crowns that fit a particular part of your tooth that needs treatment. Your restoration matches the size, shape, and color of your natural tooth, too.
Instant Smile Makeovers
Does your smile have overlapping teeth, dark spots, gaps, chips, or breaks? If your smile suffers from cosmetic flaws, Dr. Steven Stec and Dr. CJ Stec can give you an instant smile makeover in only two treatment visits to our Grand Island cosmetic dentistry practice. We offer:
- Lumineers, a revolutionary way to do veneers that can preserve your teeth in case you want to remove them later
- Traditional porcelain veneers, which allows a permanently beautiful and brighter smile that lasts for years to come
- Snap-On Smile, a convenient and affordable solution for instantly making over a flawed smile
Over the counter whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, and gels promise dramatic results, but are typically unable to deliver on these promises. Professional grade whitening from Stec Cosmetic and Family Dentistry offers higher concentrations of the active whitening agents, predictable results under the dentist’s supervision, and results in smiles up to ten shades brighter.

INVISALIGN® CLEAR BRACES
If you’ve always wanted to straighten your smile but have avoided traditional bracket and wire braces that mar your smile’s natural appearance and require a significant time commitment, Invisalign® may be a better option. Rather than shifting teeth using brackets and wires Invisalign® uses a series of clear, plastic alignment trays that gradually shift teeth into their ideal position over the course of about 12 months.
