In the new Touch Up palette at the bottom of the Quick Fix Task pane there is a new tool, the Whitened Teeth tool, which is a one click tool for selecting and whitening dull or discolored teeth. Let's see how it works. I have zoomed into this image of a boy and girl which you will find in the 10_07-whitened subfolder of the Chapter 10 exercise files. With The Whitened Teeth tool selected I'm going to come into the image, I want to make sure my brush is very small. So I'm going to make it one click smaller using the left bracket key and then I'm going to click and drag over the girl's teeth. And as I do, the tool selects the teeth and at the same time applies whitening. Now that isn't a perfect selection but there are some options in the Options bar at the top of the screen that can help me find tune that. I'll select the minus option command and drag over her lip where the selection went a little bit too wide and same over the top lip just to erase that extra part of the selection.
And then I'll go to the plus symbol in the Option bar and I'll come in and I'll try to add a little bit to the top of the selection and a little bit on the side. Now if we want to see how this looks by pressing Ctrl+H on my keyboard to temporarily hide that selection. And I'll zoom out by selecting the Zoom tool, clicking the minus and going out and it looks pretty good. Let's compare the after image with the before image, I'm going down to the View menu and I'll choose before and after horizontal and you can see that indeed her teeth are slightly wider. So that is how to make teeth clean using one simple tooth in Quick Fix.
