You’ve seen those dental ads – the ones where they take a wicked nasty smile and make it look kissibly fresh. Are the dramatic changes in the patient’s once monstrous mouth representative of the pinnacle of dental precision or were the pictures photoshopped to perfection? We’ll probably never know, however we thought it would be fun to go the other way with this reverse cosmetic dentistry tutorial, where we made an ugly set of teeth for a dental template’s “before” photo, and kept the original spotless smile as the after in the Delicious Smile Template.

Step 1: Selecting the Teeth Area

If we’re going to make gorgeous teeth gross, we’re going to need to select them first. To select the teeth area, use the Lasso Tool (L) and set the feather settings to 3pixels, and carefully draw a circle around the teeth.

Step 2 – Adjusting the Color of the Teeth – We’re Going Dark

Next, copy the selection by pressing Control C and Control V to paste it on top of the existing teeth layer. Then, click Control M to adjust the curves with the below settings, which will make the teeth a few shades darker:

Step 3 – I Wanna Paint it Black!

Now let’s add some awful black to the edges of teeth to make them look a little less cared for. Select the Brush Tool (B) and use the following settings:

Then make a new layer and choose Overlay:

With brush tool, select black color and start painting the edge of the teeth until you achieve the desire effects.

Now, let’s go back to the teeth duplicate layer:

Next, press Control U to adjust the color with the below settings:

Step 4 – Merge Teeth and Black layer

Now, let’s merge the teeth duplicate layer and the black layer by selecting both layers, right click on them and select merge layers.

Step 5: Am I Missing a Tooth? Chipped and Missing Teeth

Next, let’s make a chipped tooth. Start by creating a new layer, select the Lasso tool (L), and slowly draw a shape of the chipped tooth you prefer:

Next, fill in the selection with black, and change the blending mode of the layer to ‘Overlay’.

Next, let’s create a new layer, change the blending mode to overlay, and paint the black tooth area to your desire effect:

You can repeat step 5 for all the areas you would like to darken. This is how we made ours:

Step 6: The Gum Disease Gingivitis

Here, we’re going to add some bleeding to the gums, because a mouth isn’t going to get this bad without developing a little gingivitis. Start with creating a new layer, select a brush with 5px diameter, use color #a91010, and draw the desire bleeding gum on the teeth.

Now, select the smudge tool on the tool bar and give the gum a slight smudge:

Next, let’s select the Burn Tool and burn the red gum area to your desire effect:

Now, let’s apply a texture to the gum area. Go to Filter > Texture > Texturizer and use the settings below:

Here are the results of our reverse mouth makeover:

Eww.

And finally, the obligatory before and after shot (where our after is the before, and our before is the after):

Still want to kiss her? Sicko.

Here’s how the photo was used in the final template:

Haha! It’s just like drawing mustaches and black teeth in magazines like I did as a kid. Makes you wonder where all these hollywood types would be without cosmetics. Nice photoshop technique.
