Teeth care Tips for healthy bright White Teeth

Healthy teeth are an important beauty of each face in a photo portrait image. Pictures and photos of faces with bright white teeth smile are looking more attractive to most people. Don't ask me why Photo portrait pictures with dark stained teeth do attract less to man and woman with normal sexual health.

Unfortunately, snow white teeth do not grow in the mouth of each face without help of a cosmetic dentist. Beautiful white teeth smile needs teeth care, teeth cleaning with good whitening toothpaste, dental floss, a professional dentist or dental braces for cosmetic teeth correction. Unhealthy decayed teeth with little teeth care often need teeth implants from a cosmetic dentist.

Oral health hygiene can replace teeth whitening

The tooth and gum are very sensitive to Caries, tooth decay, periodontal disease or other gum disease problem. The teeth need a wisdom sensitive treatment, organic food, daily dental care with toothpaste, toothbrush and dental floss or the teeth will need a good dentist for replacement with dentures. Clean your teeth after each meal with good toothpaste, toothbrush and dental floss to preserve or gain beautiful healthy, bright, snow white teeth smile without a need for teeth whitening, bleaching and lightening with Gimp.

Gimp is a free digital photo editing software,

a program and a good whitening toothpaste for teeth in a photo portrait picture. You can use Gimp for teeth whitening, bleaching, cleaning and retouch in an photo image to give the face in the image a bright snow white teeth smile.

Guide and help for retouching the teeth with Gimp

#1 - select the dark stained teeth

Select the teeth with Gimp's selection tool Lasso. Do not select gum, tongue, lips and other areas that do not belong to dental enamel of the tooth. You can remove parts of the selection by holding the Ctrl button.

Make the selection of teeth soft by using the Selection > Feather dialog to avoid dark stained stripes, edges and corners on the edge of the selection for teeth whitening. I used a value of 5 px to make the selection in my image soft.

#2 - stained teeth whitening, cleaning, bleaching

Bleach the colors in the selection of teeth by using the Tools > Colors > Hue + Saturation -dialog to make stained teeth shine in natural white teeth color.

The exact values for color bleaching differ in each photo image with different teeth, saturation and lightness. I used the following values for teeth whitening in my picture: Hue: 0 ; lightness: 33 ; Saturation: -70.

Tips and tricks for teeth whitening with Gimp

* Do not overplay with brightness and saturation of teeth. Keep the brightness natural to the surrounding brightness in the image.
