Deb – Madison, CT
Smile Design: Zoom! Teeth Whitening followed by four Porcelain Veneers
Deb: “After a life-long fear of dentists and dental work, earned with good reason, I found Dr. Lerch and for the first time in my life I look forward to going to the dentist, and am filled with gratitude at the wonderful result. I spend most of my time away from the US each year but always save the dental work for Dr. Lerch. On the rare occasions I cannot wait and have to visit a dentist in another country, they are invariably complimentary on the superb standard of care Dr. Lerch has given me. She has restored my formerly amalgam-filled teeth from their chipped, discolored, crooked and precarious state to sound, healthy, beautiful teeth and given me confidence to eat, talk and smile again without embarrassment – quite the opposite, because they now flash a picture of health. My trust in her is so great that when she has recommended that I go to an oral surgeon, I have come back and asked her to do wisdom teeth extractions, and even a root canal, because I could not face the prospect of anyone else doing them. She is in complete empathy with her patient with her words and actions, avoiding pain, discomfort, anxiety or distress and creating a state of relaxation and well-being. I guess she is the human equivalent of the “horse whisperer”!
Dr. Lerch: “Enamel erosion is a common aging issue with teeth. Its source can be acid from soda and drinks, from the stomach as in acid reflux or GERD, and / or normal biting and toothbrush wear. Deb has been coming to us for years despite a crazy travel schedule. When finally her front teeth started chipping, and getting sensitive, it was clear that her bite and teeth needed some re-enforcement. We took care of her collapsing bite with Invisalign and placed four porcelain veneers on the upper and lower front teeth. All of this was done for functional and longevity reasons. As you can see, along with the peace of mind knowing her teeth will not be sore or chip anymore, she also has a beautiful transformed smile that makes her look years younger! What a pleasure it was to be a part of Deb’ stransfomation!
