In this easy, step-by-step tutorial Iâ€™m going to show you how to replace yellow color of teeth to white on photo and create real â€˜Hollywood smile.â€™
Firstly, start by finding a photo that you can demonstrate the effect to. Try to use Google Images to find a good picture or feel free to use mine. Now open up your photo in Photoshop, you can either keep it at itâ€™s current size of resize it down a little bit. Then select the Polygonal Lasso Tool to create the selection as on my picture below.
Duplicate selected area with Ctrl+J. We will experiment with this copied layer. Apply Image > Adjustments > Levels to change hue and saturation for current layer. Use settings similar to these:
See the difference now:
Ok, looks better, then before, but it will looks better without pink lips outside the teeth, get out the Eraser Tool and a sharp round brush to clear area out of teeth.
To finish off the tutorial, I think, we need to remove purple hue on teeth. Do this by using Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation with next parameters:
As for me, looks better now!
Ok, after that select the Dodge Tool (Brush: 45px, Range: Midtones, Exposure: 50%) and make a little dodge work on the teeth in the mouth corner.
Well, weâ€™re done for the tutorial! I hope you enjoyed it, even just a little bit. Now, you have real â€˜Hollywood smile!â€™
