  • 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

    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)

      sn4il, can you post a crop of the original? and the method that you previously used.

      I like the hair color...,

        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,

          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.

              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!!!

                    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.

                      Braces removed - need some C&C
                      by drode
                      I haven't done much in the way of removing braces. Her mouth was especially difficult for me because the braces are small compared to the teeth, there are missing teeth, the teeth are discolored and the mouth is somewhat shadowed.

                      I want her teeth to look natural. Very much how they might...

                      Teeth virtual makeover???
                      by grafx
                      Has anyone seen this software around? Dentists use it, but I don't know if it is available for the general public. I really want to find a better way of fixing snaggle teeth without airbrushing. Any ideas? References?

                      Bad teeth are the bane of my existance

                      How to whiten teeth, nails, and eyes
                      by Gerald McClaren
                      I've hand colored this beautiful photo, however, when I used the eraser to erase her nails, eyes, and teeth of the excess coloring, they all turned a grayish color. I would like to know how can I bring the nails, eyes, and teeth back to their original color. Thanks....

                      Really Tough Braces Removal!
                      by rnbluvva
                      Hi all!

                      I just had someone ask me to remove braces from her teeth. Usually I would have said no problem, except there is basically no tooth data to clone from to take the braces off and have some kind of thing resembling teeth left behind.

                      Should I grab someone else's teeth?...

                      Teeth
                      by alstandridge02
                      I have been looking for children/adult lips/teeth for some photoretouching. I mainly need lips/teeth for some glitz photos but I am not finding what I need! Can anybody help me out? Does anybody know of stock teeth or some high res pictures of teeth?

                      Thanks so much!
