Filters are among the most entertaining and exciting parts of Instagram stories and TikToks.

Many people use them to enhance and improve their stories for marketing purposes, while others use them for fun.

Whatever the case, we're all fond of applying filters that transform or enhance our faces.

One of the most popular filter effects in the past few months is the yellow teeth filter that has been widely used on both Instagram and TikTok.

In essence, it is a black and white filter that shows only the yellow color, which prompted users to start using this filter as a benchmark to check their smile's brightness.

They usually do this by holding an object in yellow and smiling at the camera.

If their teeth are black and white, it means that the filter does not recognize them as yellow, which is good news for anyone worried about their smile.
