Full Mouth Reconstruction

Oral health issues, like gum disease and tooth loss, can hinder your dental function and dull your smile.

Full mouth reconstruction at the Center for Esthetic Dentistry can address dental wellness concerns to give patients healthier smiles.

The fourth female board-accredited cosmetic dentist in the world, Dr. N. Summer Lerch transforms smiles throughout New Haven, CT.

What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?


Full mouth reconstruction combines multiple dental procedures to restore the patient's oral health and function. Unlike cosmetic dentistry, the procedures aren't focused on aesthetic outcomes. Reconstructive dentistry fixes the problem at its core rather than covering up a slight flaw with veneers. While a better-looking smile may result, a full mouth reconstruction focuses more on function than aesthetics.

​Stunning Before and After Transformation of Our New Haven, CT, Patient

Before Full Mouth Reconstruction
After Full Mouth Reconstruction
Dennis is one of our actual full mouth reconstruction patients. Years of wear and tear affected the appearance and health of his smile. Using a combination of braces, porcelain crowns, and veneers, we were able to enhance his dental health and smile aesthetics. This is the kind of quality restorative work that we can achieve for you.

Types of Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures

Dr. Lerch and her team in New Haven, CT, love teeth. We want your new smile to feel natural, which is why we often focus on restoring your oral health with fixed restorations rather than removable dentures. To achieve this mission, we offer various dental procedures:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent restoration option to permanently replace a missing tooth and protect the patient's jaw from bone deterioration and shifting teeth. Dr. N. Summer Lerch works with Dr. Brian Evans when placing implants. Dr. Evans is a prosthodontist known for his work as an implant specialist. Our dentist can see if implants are the correct procedure for you during your consultation.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a great solution for repairing a damaged tooth or replacing a missing tooth. Our crowns can be implant-supported to provide a stable structure that feels and looks like your natural teeth. Our porcelain material mimics natural enamel and is highly durable. Our office works with a skilled lab nearby to craft your custom dental crown in three weeks.

Crooked and misaligned teeth can make chewing, speaking, and other daily tasks difficult for patients. The Center of Esthetic Dentistry uses Invisalign® to straighten and correct smiles. Straightening crooked teeth can help your oral health and function long-term.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease can quickly spread and lead to other dental health problems if not dealt with immediately. Our office uses lasers to access and remove the infected gum tissue around your tooth. We can then remove the built-up plaque along your gumline. In some cases, we use localized antibiotics to clear the mouth of gum disease. If you have gum disease, treatment is necessary before receiving other dental procedures.

Implant-Supported Restorations

The Center for Esthetic Dentistry believes in implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures for proper restoration of the smile. Our dentist can replace one tooth with an implant-supported crown, multiple teeth with an implant-supported dental bridge, or a full-arch of teeth with implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported restorations are more sturdy and permanent than traditional dentures.

Do You Perform Root Canals?


Our office does not perform root canals. However, we can refer you to an endodontist if a root canal is necessary for treatment.

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.
