F is for Fassbender: Michael Before and After Teeth Whitening (via Photoshop)

by Janine on 6 July 2012 · 32 comments

One of my top tips for looking younger and fresher is whiten your teeth. Against white teeth, skin looks brighter and you look healthier overall. Thought I’d show you how that works via giving Michael Fassbender a Photoshop smile makeover. Can you see the difference? More below:

Looks healthier with whiter teeth, too, right?

A more clean-cut Fassy.

Even more clean cut with — well, cleaner-looking teeth.

Thoughts?

I LOVE THAT YOU DID THIS! It soooo had to be said about him, the only thing that holds me back from wanting to stick my tongue down his throat is knowing it has to pass through those yellow teeth.

PS. Going to put white strips on right now.

Whiter teeth definitely makes him more makeout-worthy! I’m guessing you’d be amenable to other things with him, though…

Americans and their obsession with unnaturally white teeth.

Canadian on this side of the screen, KC. *white-toothed grin*

Also: I didn’t give him “unnaturally” white teeth. He’s no Ross Geller in the Photoshopped images.

Highly recommended for brides and grooms for their wedding. I had my teeth whitened at the dentist before we got married and it made a visible difference in photos. My hubby wanted the white teeth, but didn’t do it, because he has sensitive teeth and refused to try Crest White Strips or like products. His teeth were more yellow than mine to begin with, so it really showed up in our wedding photos together.

A whitening mouthwash, such as Listerine’s whitening rinse, should do the trick over time without causing sensitivity — have him try that, and let me know how it goes, ‘k Wynne?

Thanks for the tip…I’ll mention it to him fer sure! Will let you know, if he tries it out for some time.

A whitening toothpaste as well as the rinse would be better — forgot to mention :-)

Siofan, just move his mouth south, yo!

I approve this message.

If I had my way I would be so close to Fassbender that I could not see his teeth.

And what Lesa said. Yo.

Love these real-life (-ish) coping mechanisms!

I don’t think this makes him more attractive. It does look unnatural and not everyone goes for the fake look.

Jane 7 August 2012 at 8:04 am

Not even an issue with me. Would never have noticed.

BECAUSE IT’S FASSBENDER.

Janine 7 August 2012 at 8:08 am

Second thing I noticed about him. And it spoiled the first thing I noticed about him — his face :-(

I actively dislike the change–must be a cultural thing. I think us Brits much prefer clean, natural, normal looking teeth to teeth that look like they’ve been whitened. I really don’t understand the obsession with white teeth–healthy teeth are supposed to be slightly yellow; it’s the natural colour of the dentin below the transparent enamel.

Janine 22 August 2012 at 12:18 pm

I think you’re right re: a cultural thing — I’ll check in with my dad on that, too (he’s a Brit).

But given the change whiter teeth make to the overall complexion and appearance of age, I’ll always err on the side of whiter. :-)

That said, Fassy’s “after” teeth are still not entirely white, because that would be unnatural. They’re just less yellow; if you look closely (enlarge the photos by clicking on them), they still have a faintly yellow cast.

Pretty sure his particular shade of yellow is caused by nicotine, not by dentin. ;) The second shot is a totally natural shade of healthy teeth, not uberwhite. He definitely has a better smile when his teeth are whiter, in my opinion. And it’s an easy fix. It’s not like anyone is suggesting veneers.

Yes, nicotine! Thanks, Annabelle :-)

While I love a mouth full of white teeth as much as the next, I disagree! White teeth is part of the North American beauty myth. Fassy is European, thus not bound by our nonsensical cultural mores.

Janine 23 August 2012 at 8:09 pm

*chuckle* Thanks for your comment, minandmegs!

Really, it’s not as though he’d have to bleach his teeth if he were Canadian, or even if he were Chinese/Portuguese/English/French like me. Doesn’t matter where he’s from — some of us happen to think he’d look even more ridiculously handsome with white teeth; some of us don’t.

Doubt he gives a toss, either way, but I’m still on Team White Teeth for Fassy. *grin*
