As someone who had braces for six years, I can tell you, there isn’t a single photo of me with braces. I was super self-conscious, and if I had to be in a picture, I tried to nail the duck face pout because I just didn’t want to smile.
But a huge cheesy grin is one of the best things about photos. Unless you have braces. Then you spend your whole time wondering if people are looking at your braces and worry that there is something in them. But then, even if you do smile, it’s super awkward because you’re thinking about having spinach stuck in there even though you haven’t eaten spinach in three years.
When I was younger and had my braces, Facetune2 didn’t exist. There was no way to edit a photo. So I just avoided all photos. Nowadays, it’s super easy to just smile, relax, enjoy the moment and then edit your braces out afterward. (And edit the smile as well). Trust me, you’ll want to look back on the memories, so don’t avoid the pictures. All you need is the Facetune2 selfie editor app, and you can just remove your braces later (and any spinach!).
Step 1 – Pick the photo you want to edit and open it in Facetune2
Step 2 – Use the Face option and the Smile tool to make your smile nice a wide.
Step 3 – In the main menu, go into the Retouch function and select the Whiten tool to make your teeth nice and white.
Step 4 – Pinch your fingers to zoom in on your smile. Now, you have two options. You can try both to see which method is better for you, your teeth, and your braces.
- Option 1: In the Patch menu, use the Patch tool to highlight your braces and then move the matching area to your natural teeth colour.
- Option 2: Using the Vanish tool in the Patch menu, highlight your braces and watch as Facetune2 magically removes your braces. Depending on your smile and the position of your lips, you might need to do this several times rather than in one big edit.
Step 5 – Save your edits, and you’re done!
Never miss out on snapping a photo or missing a memory because of your braces. Most people will have braces at some point in their life, and they are nothing to be ashamed of. But if you do want to remove them from a photo, it’s now easier than ever. We at Facetune love teaching you all the photo editing secrets to help you gain more Facebook likes and followers.
