Make any minor adjustments and sharpen your image.

If you need to whiten the teeth of any of your people, click Quick at the top of the workspace and use the Whiten Teeth tool in the Tools panel.

Perform any additional repair or healing tasks by using the Healing Brush, Spot Healing Brush, and Clone Stamp tools.

You can return to Quick mode and either click the Auto button or drag the Sharpen slider under Sharpen in the right pane. Or, for more precise control, in Expert mode, choose Enhance→Adjust Sharpness.

This fix should always be the last adjustment you make on your image. You want to make sure that all your contrast, color, and flaws are fixed before sharpening. The reason is that the sharpening process increases contrast, so you don’t want to exacerbate any problems that may exist.
