How To Whiten Teeth in Photoshop (any Version)

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.
  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.
