You are a Good Dentist by Ashish Rastogi, India

You remember when your parents or girlfriend see your photo and said to you “your teeth are very yellowish”. Because in real life we are animated, and minor imperfections or yellowish teeth’s less noticeable. When you freeze a moment in time and give the eye a chance to concentrate on these minor imperfections then everybody knows the truth. Now its time to say, go to the doctor and check your eyes because my teeth’s are perfect. You can always book an appointment at  Western Dental too to get real teeth whitening so they can look pearly in real life as well.

First choose your Magic Wand tool, lasso tool (or any other selection tool) to put a selection around your teeth. To refine your selection, go to Quick Mask mode and use your Paintbrush tool to modify the mask.

Now that you have a refined mask, feather the selection radius by 2 pixels (Select > Feather) to give a nice blended edge. First remove the yellowing (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation). Select Ok.  When the Hue/Saturation dialog box appears, from the Edit pop-up menu, choose Yellows. Then to remove yellowing, lower the Saturation slider.

There are two ways to brighten the teeth. Choose anyone from following.

  • First Method -> Now from the Edit pop-up menu, choose Master and drag the Lightness slider to the right to brighten the teeth.

  • Second Method -> Select (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels), and move the middle slider to the left a bit. Different amounts of whitening are called for in every image, so use your own judgment and experiment until it looks right to you.
