The Place to Be For Cosmetic Dentistry
"I've been a patient for over 10 years."
This office has changed my life for the better.
I've been a patient for over 10 years now and my teeth and gums are cleaner and healthier then they have ever been. Somehow they make me better and healthier with every appointment.
I sat up in the chair again yesterday and cried tears of joy for the amazing work Dr. Lerch did on my two front teeth. One was cracked; one was chipped. They look better than they ever did, and all the work was covered by insurance. She is an artist, and visiting this cozy and loving practice is always a great experience.View on Google

How Our Featured Services Can Refine Your Smile
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.
