When it comes to whitening your teeth (outside of selfie video editing), you’ve got a few options; whitening strips, expensive treatments or a quick edit on your phone. It sucks when you look back at a video only to see the coffee has left your pearly whites looking neither pearly nor white.
Enter teeth whitening in videos.Whatever your vice, be it coffee, red wine, smoking, too many fizzy drinks, or even too much soy sauce, stained teeth are not cute on anyone, and can be avoided. The problem is, we generally don’t notice stained teeth until we see them in a video, and by then it’s too late. If all your mates are smiling and showing perfect white teeth, it can be awkward when yours look a strange shade of yellow. But don’t panic; there’s no need to book a dentist appointment just yet.
We know how embarrassing it is to have stained teeth while your mate looks like a celebrity. But when it comes to teeth whitening in videos, make sure you don’t go too far, or you could end up looking like Ross from Friends or Simon Cowell. Glow in the dark teeth, anyone?
To make sure you don’t mess it up, follow our guide to getting clear white teeth in your video in just seconds without all the mess and money.
Upload your video to the Facetune Video app.
On the bottom control bar, select the Retouch option. And use the Smooth function and the Glow tool to give yourself a flawless base. You’ll want to edit your face first because if you brighten your face you may find your teeth need even more whitening.
On the main home screen, slide the icon along the still frames until you find a good shot of yourself with your teeth showing. This will make the next step easier.
Scroll along the bottom bar until you find the Smile tool. In this area you can add lipstick if you want as well as whiten your teeth. In the Whiten function, move the bar up and down to intensify the whiteness of your teeth. The unique algorithms in the app will apply your choice across the whole video. It will also apply it to other people in the video.
And one final tip for teeth whitening in your videos:
Remember, you can always go back to the FTV home screen to watch the video. This lets you check to see if everything has been edited smoothly and to ensure you don’t whiten your teeth too much.
In videos with changing lights, you may find that what looks white in one shot, is actually super bright or super yellow the next second. You’ll need to play around to find a happy medium with your new pearl whites.
