These have been years of tremendous growth in the field of dentistry and in cosmetic dentistry in particular.  Dr. Lerch has been at the forefront all this time, providing her first Smile Design treatment in 1983.  As we look forward, there are even better things to come at the Center for Esthetic Dentistry, LLC!   Through this blog, you will learn about some of Dr. Lerch’s most popular procedures, find out why your dental experience is different with Dr. Lerch and catch a glimpse at the future.  Keep reading to learn more!

Procedures We Love

Nancy Summer Lerch, DDS, FAGD, AAACD uses the best dental technology available to ensure that her patients always have the best care.  By staying up to date with the latest trends in dentistry, Dr. Lerch can keep a pulse on the changing world of cosmetic dentistry.  Procedures are continually being refined and enhanced to make recovery time shorter, and results even better.

Some of the procedures that are we are most proud of at Dr. Lerch’s practice include:

  • Porcelain Veneers- porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the front of the teeth.  They help to make the smile look natural, beautiful, and can create results in as little as two trips to Dr. Lerch’s office. Dr. Lerch takes the time to make certain that the porcelain veneers are crafted to fit each patient’s unique features which include the face, the skin, the lips and how they frame the smile, gum health, color, position and teeth color, size and shape.  All this makes a difference in Smile Design treatment, and in your ultimate ability to show off one of your best assets!
  • Gum Recontouring- have you ever looked in the mirror and wished that your smile was less gummy?  With Nancy Summer Lerch, DDS, FAGD, AAACD’s gum recontouring procedures, you do not have to think about a gummy smile any longer.  Using dental laser technology, Dr. Lerch is able to contour the gums so that more of your teeth show, and less of your gums are prevalent.  This procedure can dramatically change the look of the smile in only one visit!
  • Tooth Whitening- it does not take an abundance of time to create a knock-out white smile! With Zoom! Whitening, you can walk out of our office in less than an hour, with teeth that are up to 8 shades whiter.  The entire procedure is quick, painless, and can remove a decade of yellowing from your smile!
  • Invisalign – Clear Braces- this is the most exciting advancement in dental health in the recent past.  Invisalign is a safe, effective and an easy way to have that straight, white, even and healthy smile you have always wanted!  Dr. Lerch prides herself on being the top restorative and smile design dentist providing Invisalign care in the greater New Haven area.  There is no better place to have Invisalign treatment, for all Dr. Lerch’s results come from her expertise in Smile Design.  No one else can claim that!
  • Advanced Gum Care- we now know that gums affect the health of the entire body as oral bacteria have been cultivated in many diseased organs throughout the body.  At the Center for Esthetic Dentistry, LLC, you will absolutely know how, why and when to brush, floss and use other tools to keep your teeth and gums healthy for your lifetime.  And this is not what you think – there is new research and thus new techniques in having a sparkling clean and healthy smile!

These are just a few of our procedures that bring out our patients’ most beautiful smiles.  If you would like to learn about cosmetic dentistry, and how small procedures can make a big difference, contact Nancy Summer Lerch, DDS, FAGD, AAACD today.  She can be reached at 203-624-5256 or at Gail@theartofsmiles.com

We Are Very Blessed to Have Great Patients!

Testimonial from Karen T.

I was always self-conscious of my teeth, thus my smile.  Now that Dr. Lerch has worked her magic, I find I am smiling all the time.  I feel much more confident about how I look, because, I love my smile so much now!  Big thanks to Dr. Lerch and her great team!  They are very professional and caring.

Testimonial From a Satisfied Patient!

I was referred to Dr. Lerch and her team by a friend; I was born without my lateral incisors.  When I was a teenager, I had gotten dental implants and crowns put in as my lateral teeth.  A few years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer and all the treatments that I had gone through caused my teeth to change appearance and my gumline to recede.  When I came to Dr. Lerch, I had a receding gumline over both of my lateral teeth exposing my metal implants,  and  my crowns didn’t look very natural at all.  I don’t think many dentists would have put in so much effort and paid so much attention to detail!  She and her staff were always very friendly!  It’s been a pleasure!

A great testimonial from a recent case that was completed!

Prior to this experience, I felt very self-conscious about my smile.  Dr. Lerch and her staff had made me feel very comfortable when talking about different options that could be done during the transformation process.  It was a very exciting experience; I truly appreciated Dr. Lerch and her staff sharing in the excitement I was feeling during each visit.  I am amazed at how great my teeth and smile look today, and am very happy with the treatment process.  I can now smile with confidence.
