This was my first time visiting Dr. Lerch. From the time I walked in I knew I was going to have a great experience. I became so emotional because of the care I received. Dr. Lerch and her team are like momma bears protecting their cubs. I felt safe, I didnt feel judged or embarrassed. What an amazing job she did! This experience was such a blessing. I will NEVER visit another dentist. I'm here to stay.... Thank you Dr. Lerch and team.

Before coming to the office I had a bad experience at another dentist. So I was VERY anxious and skeptical about seeing another dentist. The office made me feel at home right away—like a family. I had a torsion at the roof of my mouth and my teeth were just starting to feel as though they didn’t even belong in my own mouth. The Invisalign helped to stop the torsion development, make my teeth feel as though they belonged again and straightened my teeth (as an added benefit). Highly recommend the office. The Dentist is exceptional and will set you mind at ease reguardless of your issues with your teeth.

New Haven's Choice for Invisalign

Do you hide your smile because of crooked teeth? An Invisalign treatment plan designed by Dr. Lerch and her team can bring your teeth into alignment, improving the appearance of your smile, the function of your bite, and your oral health. Patients love Invisalign because it is:

  • Discreet: No one will know that you are wearing the clear plastic aligners.
  • Comfortable: Aligners fit precisely over your teeth and don't scratch your cheeks or tongue.
  • Convenient: You can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, or floss, so you don't have to change your diet or oral hygiene routine.

Dr. Lerch is an experienced Invisalign dentist who can combine clear orthodontics with other forms of cosmetic dental care to produce outstanding results. She also uses an iTero Digital Scanner for accurate impressions made quickly and comfortably. Contact our New Haven practice today to get started with your Invisalign treatment.

Enhance Your Smile with Dental Veneers

Do you ever wonder how movie stars and other celebrities have such perfect teeth? The truth is that many of them have upgraded their smiles with porcelain veneers.

Veneers are ultra-thin laminates that Dr. Lerch can attach to the front surfaces of teeth, obscuring imperfections like stains and cracks. Because they are precisely crafted out of lifelike porcelain, veneers create bright, straight, natural-looking smiles.

As a board-accredited cosmetic dentist, Dr. Lerch is an expert at designing and placing dental veneers. She proudly uses high-quality IPS e.max® porcelain veneers for natural-looking transformations. If you are ready to dramatically upgrade your smile in just two appointments, schedule a consultation at the Center for Esthetic Dentistry in New Haven, CT, today.

Brighten Your Life with a Smile Makeover 

Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. When you hide your smile out of self-consciousness, it can make you come across as unfriendly or lacking confidence. Meanwhile, if you don't like what you see in the mirror, you can develop a negative self-image, which can take a toll on every area of your life.

If you're unhappy with your smile, it's time to make a change. Consult with Dr. N. Summer Lerch, New Haven's top cosmetic dentist and an expert in smile design.

When you consult with our dentist, she will ask about your goals and examine your teeth and gums. Then, she can personally design a unique smile makeover that will incorporate several dental treatments to produce the smile you want.
