Additional Tips

Most likely you would be happy with the result already, but here are some additional tips for whitening teeth in Photoshop:

  • Use a soft-edged brush when painting on the layer mask to create a smooth transition between the whitened teeth and the rest of the photo.
  • If you want to whiten the teeth even more, you can create a second hue/saturation adjustment layer and set the “Edit” option to “Master”. Then, drag the “Saturation” slider to the left to reduce the saturation of all the colors in the teeth.
  • Be careful not to over-whiten the teeth, as this can make them look unnatural.
