As someone who had braces for six years, I can tell you that 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.
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 worrying that there is something in them. Even if you do smile, it's 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 easy to just smile, relax, enjoy the moment and then edit your braces out of a photo 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 Facetune2, and you have the option of removing your braces (and any spinach!) in photos.
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 and wide.
Step 3 – In the main menu, go into the Retouch function and select the Whiten tool to make your teeth a brighter shade of 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 color.
- 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!

Many people will have braces at some point in their lives, and they are nothing to be ashamed of. But if you do want to remove them from a photo, it's easier than ever with Facetune2. You should never miss out on capturing a memory because of your braces!
