Whiten Teeth In Photoshop - How To


This came out a bit too bright but the examples in Photoshop Essentials look much better. I did the final mask at 40% opacity on the front teeth and 20% on the back. I used a hard brush but I think a softer brush would give a better look along the gum line.

My Notes:

Use the Lasso Tool to loosely draw a selection around the teeth.

Adjustment Layer > Hue Saturation
Choose Yellow from the Master drop down.
Move the Saturation Slider all the way left.
Move the Lightness Slider right to brighten the teeth. I used +25.

Edit > Fill > Black
Use a brush to paint out the teeth. White removes, black paints it back (in case you make a mistake.)
Lower the opacity to keep the teeth from becoming too white.

You can still lower the opacity further by changing the Opacity at the top of the Layers Panel.
