How To Whiten Teeth in Photoshop (any Version)

Whiten and brighten a smile in just a few minutes.

You don't need special toothpaste if you've got Photoshop! The dodge tool makes quick work of whitening and brightening your smile.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 5 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Open the image.

  2. Go to Image > Duplicate and close the original.

  3. Go to View > New View. This will open a duplicate window of the same image.

  4. Zoom one of the windows so that you can see the teeth as large as possible. Set the other window view to 100%.

  5. Arrange the two windows so you can see both the zoomed view and the 100% view at the same time.

  6. Select the Dodge tool.

  7. In the options palette select midtones and set the exposure to about 20%.

  8. Select a small, soft brush. Be sure the brush is smaller than the teeth.

  9. Carefully paint over the teeth with the dodge tool.

Tips:

  1. Too much brightness will make the image look faked. If you overdo it, go to Edit > Fade in Photoshop 6.0 or later. (Filter > Fade Dodge Tool in Photoshop 5.5 or earlier)

  2. For better accuracy, select the teeth before working with the dodge tool.
