Teeth - natural look

Hi,
I was plying with one of the images I shot last weekend and got stuck on the teeth.
Since I just started learing photoshop and retouching techniques I'm happy with everything except damn teeth and upper lip.
I just cant get them to look natural.
Here is my take on this:

What could be done to this picture to make them look natural?
I will appreciate all advices.
thnx
Max

Re: Teeth - natural look

A little USM on both teeth and upper lip. Slightly increased contrast on teeth only. Painted with color sampled from the lower lip on the upper. (All on the right side only)

Re: Teeth - natural look

It looks like she has a bit of an overbite.

-Move the teeth up a smidgen
-Add just a hint of color back into them, they are starting to look grey. You could also add a little color back into the eyes they look to grey as well.
-Lighten the bottom row of teeth so they move forward a bit.
-darken (slightly ) along the top gum-line, where the teeth meet the lips in order to create more of.

happy retouching,

Re: Teeth - natural look

I decided to start from scratch on this one, instead using heavy c/h & d/b I used a liquify filter. I think this time i kept more of the original texture and hightlights on them.
I took Jack's advice and added a bit of color to the eyes and lightened the bottom row of teeth.
I think my monitor its not calibrated properly.

Keven: Sorry, I can not post original, I dont have permision from the model

What do You guys think? I kept previous version to see the difference.

Re: Teeth - natural look

sn4il, how about trying to move (or liquify) the upper lip and upper teeth slightly to the right for the left photo? That way they will be more aligned with the facial axis.

It is important to remember that teeth are ivory, and that ivory is not white!!!

Re: Teeth - natural look

Don't mean to be a stick in the mud, but if you don't have permission from the model to post the original, then you don't have permission to post a retouched version either. You either have a release to use the person's image in public domains or you don't.
