If you want to significantly enhance your smile, a single cosmetic treatment may not be enough to deliver the changes you're looking for.
A customized smile makeover at the Center for Esthetic Dentistry in New Haven, CT, can help you achieve a true transformation.
Board-certified cosmetic dentist N. Summer Lerch can combine multiple treatments to give you the smile you've always wanted.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan that's tailored uniquely to you. It can rejuvenate your appearance if you're dealing with multiple cosmetic dental issues at once. Common treatments include dental crowns, porcelain veneers, and professional-grade teeth whitening, though each plan differs depending on a patient's own needs and goals. If your smile issues are primarily functional or health-related rather than cosmetic, we might urge you to consider full mouth reconstruction instead.
Common Cosmetic Issues A Smile Makeover Can Address
Combine smile makeover treatments to tackle a number of common dental issues, including:
- Stained Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
- Gapped Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Gummy Smile
- Dental Damage
- Missing Teeth

Premium Materials Create Gorgeous Results We Offer the Finest Dental Restorations
Zirconia and e.max ceramics are significantly stronger than regular porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin, which are all widely used in dentistry. This means that zirconia or e.max restorations are able to withstand the force of your bite with a much lesser risk of chipping or cracking. They are also less likely to warp when exposed to especially hot or cold temperatures. These restorations offer excellent function in addition to beauty.
Zirconia and e.max restorations are semitranslucent, which means they reflect light in the same way tooth enamel does. They have a lifelike luster instead of the dull, unnatural look that many restorations have. In addition, these materials can be easily customized to have the precise shape, shade, and size that's right for your unique smile. You'll enjoy natural-looking results that blend right in rather than a cookie-cutter solution that doesn't necessarily fit you.
With good dental hygiene habits and regular checkups at our New Haven office, you can get wonderfully long-lasting results from your zirconia or e.max restorations. These materials are built to stand the test of time and regularly last 15 years or longer before they need to be replaced. When the time comes, we'll have all your information and scans on file, so refreshing your smile will be a simple process.

Glowing Reviews From Happy Patients
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
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.View on Google
Our Featured Smile Makeover Services
Achieve a dazzling smile with our professional teeth whitening services. We use the Philips Zoom!® whitening system to eliminate years of surface staining. Many patients see an improvement of several shades in just one hour-long appointment. We also offer professional-grade at-home kits that can comfortably whiten your smile when worn overnight or for just a few hours a day.
Our IPS e.max® veneers can mask cracks, stains, small gaps, and more. This premier material possesses the same translucent qualities as natural teeth, providing incredibly lifelike cosmetic enhancement. Your custom veneers will be ultra-thin, allowing you to speak, chew, and smile with complete comfort.
Our laser gum contouring services are a virtually painless way to balance and straighten your gumline. If you feel your teeth appear disproportionately small due to a "gummy smile," this treatment can safely and effectively remove excess gum tissue and refocus attention on your beautiful smile, not your gums.
The Invisalign system is a popular alternative to traditional orthodontics for patients who want to correct mild to moderate misalignment. These clear plastic aligners gradually straighten your smile with a level of comfort and subtlety that bulky metal braces cannot provide. Our New Haven practice also offers Invisalign attachments, which makes treatment possible for a wider range of patients. If you have especially complex misalignment issues, Dr. Lerch can refer you to a qualified orthodontist for effective treatment.
Dental crowns can be used to enhance the appearance of decayed and damaged teeth or otherwise healthy teeth that are misshapen or discolored. Our top-quality zirconia and IPS e.max crowns are custom-made at a trusted lab that can precisely color-match your crowns to the rest of your smile for a beautiful, seamless look.
Dental implants are the definitive restorative solution for missing teeth and the only treatment that can prevent jawbone recession after tooth loss. We work with a skilled dental implant specialist who can place implant posts to replace missing tooth roots. Dr. Lerch and our team can then design lifelike crowns, bridges, or dentures that look and feel just like your natural teeth.
These treatments can be combined with many other restorative and cosmetic dentistry services to further enhance the look and function of your smile. Explore our dental services page for more information.
