Towson, MD Dentist
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of your teeth, gums and/or bite.
Many patients are interested in improving the appearance of their smile. Teeth whitening, reshaping natural teeth, bonding of tooth-colored material to teeth, crowns, bridges and porcelain veneers are techniques commonly used by Drs. Ousborne and Keller to modify a smile.
A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry’s many advances and the expertise of Ousborne and Keller, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. You now have choices that can help you smile with confidence.
Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. Drs. Ousborne and Keller will be happy to meet with you and discuss the options best suited for your particular needs. Attention and consideration will be paid to your expectations and desires, as well as the costs associated with your treatment.
Technological advancements in natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than in years past. Additionally, Drs. Ousborne and Keller use only the most conservative dental techniques in order to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. These two components help to make cosmetic dental procedures at Ousborne and Keller more comfortable, convenient and cost-effective for patients.
Cosmetic Dental Options Include
Veneers are thin custom-made ceramic shells designed to cover the front side and the biting edge of the teeth. Made of tooth-colored materials, veneers are used to treat spaces between teeth and teeth that are chipped, worn, permanently stained, poorly shaped or slightly crooked.
Tooth whitening (bleaching) brightens teeth that are discolored or stained. Our office offers the Zoom!® in office whitening process and/or trays to whiten at home.
Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored resin materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface.
Enamel shaping involves modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or contouring enamel. The process, which often is combined with bonding, usually is quick and comfortable. The results can be seen immediately.
Braces are not just for kids. Orthodontics may be needed if teeth are crooked, crowded or do not function properly. Ousborne and Keller offers Six Month Smiles for adult patients who are interested in the benefits of Orthodontics without the cost and time typically associated with comprehensive Orthodontic care.

Dental Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, function and even feel like natural teeth.
Crowns cover or “cap” a tooth to restore the normal function and appearance of the tooth and may be made of all metal, porcelain fused to metal, all ceramic (porcelain) or Zirconium, a tooth colored metal ceramic. Crowns are indicated for teeth with very large fillings, teeth that have had a root canal, fractured teeth and misshapen and/or discolored teeth. Ask our office about one day crown restorations.
Bridges The traditional method used to replace a missing tooth or teeth includes the fabrication of a bridge. A bridge usually consists of three or more ‘crowns’ joined together to create a unit of bridgework.
With good oral hygiene practices, healthy eating habits, and regular dental visits too, Ousborne and Keller your new smile will continue to impress for many years.
