Our Patient Testimonials and Smile Transformations 

Transformation of the Month Amanda M.


"I could not be happier with my decision to see Dr. Lerch! I wish I had done this sooner. The entire process of designing a new smile with veneers was seamless from start to finish. From the first consultation to the following 2 appointments I was soon in my new smile. Dr. Lerch, Sherri and the entire team make each patient feel so comfortable and safe in this big decision. I find myself smiling and laughing more than ever before and I could not thank them enough!"

Client Testimonial

GabriellaGabby I.: "Dr. Lerch helped me gain my confidence back. As a graduating law student about to begin my career, I wanted a smile I could be proud of , one that made me feel confident in myself especially when I am sitting in front of clients or speaking in a court room. Dr. Lerch helped enhance my smile. It looks like they could be my natural teeth."

Dr. Lerch: "G.I. came to us with a real desire to have a beautiful smile. She was about to graduate from Quinnipiac Law School and launch her career. She just knew that uneven, tilted, and “white-spotted” front teeth would not give her the confidence she so desired. After Zoom whitening, and just four porcelain veneers on her upper central and lateral front teeth, she had the smile of her dreams! Ready for her new law firm, with a totally new outlook on life. She is so excited!!! As we are for her."

"They are the best!! The entire process was super simple and I came out with my dream smile. Can’t recommend them enough!"

"Dr. Lerch and her team are amazing! They went over all options with me and made me feel extremely comfortable, and excited, about my decision to try Invisalign. They make you feel welcomed and taken care of every single appointment! I’m very pleased with my results and highly recommend them!"

Thomas S.: "I had my teeth whitened and some bonding work done by Dr. Lerch and her amazing team. They guided me the whole way through the process and showed me exactly what was needed. Thanks to them I'm not afraid to smile!"

Very friendly and helpful staff! You always feel welcome when you arrive, and reassured when you leave!

NaiomieNaiomie R. never smiled. Even for selfies or for Instagram. Then one day she did! Her followers immediately noticed the change and let her know how beautiful she is. This happened with a simple in office Zoom Whitening procedure followed by four front veneers. Voila, a new smile, a new face, a new life!

Natasha"I moved to CT in June of 2021. Around September I googled a cosmetic dental office and chose Dr. Lerch based off of reviews. Everyone was VERY warm. Which was important because I have HIGH ANXIETY when it comes to ANY medical/dental visit. Dr. Lerch and Sheri walked me through the process every time I came in. Answered all questions and was very tolerant of my anxiety which was important for the process to begin and finish. I've never been to a dentist that doesn’t offer Nitrous and was very proud that I was able to go through the process without It with the help of the staff." - Natasha 

Brianna P."Dr. Lerch and Sheri are amazing! They took all of my concerns into
consideration and gave me a beautiful smile to show off! I would
recommend absolutely everyone to come see them for anything they are
looking for, to give them their dream of a perfect smile!" – Sherri B.

Brianna P.“I came in for a veneer consultation and wanted a more symmetrical smile. Dr. Lerch suggested Invisalign and two veneers instead. I could not have imagined a more beautiful, natural looking final result. I now have the smile I have always wanted! Thank you everyone at Center for Esthetic Dentistry!” – Brianna P.

dental-patient-new-haven-ct-1“My 18-month search for a new smile was long and well researched. It’s not often you make such a large personal decision but I am thrilled that my search brought me to The Center for Esthetic Dentistry. I am extremely happy with the outcome. Thank you to the entire team: Dr. Lerch, Sheri and Gail!” – Pam K.

dental-patient-new-haven-ct“The experience was excellent. The results are fine and I would recommend this office to anyone seeking to redesign their smile!” – Larry .K

dental-patient-new-haven-ct-1“When I expressed my concern about the excessive wear and unsightly appearance of my teeth to my dentist, Dr. Y. Edrisinge, I was very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Summer Lerch, a cosmetic dentist, who is highly regarded in her field and in whom Dr. Edrisinghe had considerable confidence. My first impression so the procedure in correcting my teeth, and corresponding smile appearance, was enthusiastic, and very professional teamwork, of Dr. Lerch and her vary able assistants, Sheri and Gail. Foremost in my observations of the treatment I received was the attention to the minutest detail and the striving for perfection in achieving the desired result in both the appearance of my teeth and my smile. While the procedure was a lengthy one, the end result was everything I could have hoped for, and I am extremely pleased with the result. It is gratifying that this is not just my view, but also of friends and family members who have complimented me on the remarkable transformation of the appearance of my teeth. Naturally, I have no hesitation in presenting my new smile to anybody I meet and it has given me greater confidence in social situations. I also have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dr. Lerch’s wonderful team to anybody seeking spectacular results similar to what they have achieved for me.” – Charles L.

Jessica L.“I found the Center for Esthetic Dentistry, LLC on the Invisalign website and am extremely happy that I chose this office to complete the Invisalign process/treatment plan. Before I started Invisalign, I was very self-conscious about my smile. As a happy-go-lucky person, it makes me happy to have a smile on my face so I knew it was time to make a change. I have nothing but positive things to say about the Center for Esthetic dentistry, LLC. The office is lovely and very relaxing and does not feel like a traditional dentist’s office. Sheri, Gail and Dr. Lerch made me feel like I was their only patient. I was able to contact them at any time with concerns and questions and they were always extremely accommodating. I would recommend the Center for Esthetic Dentistry, LLC to anybody looking to improve their smile while working with people who genuinely care about you. I love my smile now. To have people tell you on a daily basis that you have a warm and beautiful smile is one of the best compliments in the world. Thank you Dr. Lerch, Sheri, and Gail for making that possible for me!” – Jessica L.

Marlene-Patient-Testimonial-New-Haven-CT“I came to Center for Esthetic Dentistry, LLC (CED) to have my teeth bleached, and walked out with so much more. Having my teeth bleached I would be able to smile without a closed smile. Now I smile with the biggest possible, open smile thanks to my perfect veneers and tooth colored fillings. I have so much confidence in myself and it shows through my smile. I didn’t realize what a beautiful smile can do for you. It has changed my life! I love it when people say to me you have a beautiful smile. So on that note I want to thank CED for all the warm smiles they gave me each and every time I came in. Now I can give them one back with mine. Here’s smiling at you CED!”

– Marlene B.

“Dr. Lerch and her staff were a lot of fun to work with. They always tried to make me feel comfortable throughout the whole smile transformation. We had our ups and downs, but in the end I have a beautiful smile that I am proud of. Thank you!” – R. W.

“I found Dr. Lerch over 7 years ago on the Internet while trying to find a replacement for my current Dentist who I was not pleased with.  Since then, she has done a complete overhaul of my teeth, including correcting old fillings, removing a bad bonding job, ZOOM! and a pair of veneers to complete the job.  It may have taken years, but the confidence I have will last a lifetime!” – J.Z.

“My new smile has given me a freedom to smile without fear. Taking this step of faith was been a blessing. It has taken away the fear of dentistry. I have wanted to do this and I feel as though I have made an accomplishment in my life. My journey through the process was handled with warmth, caring and excellence. My friends tell me I shine! THANK YOU DR. LERCH!” – G.H.
