Do you make your photos lie?

For several years, especially in close-ups, I've taken the time to clone out occasional freckles and other skin blemishes. But a couple of months ago, I whitened the teeth in a photo by several shades --- quite literally, a little white lie. I never said a word about this to anyone photographed. But I've been receiving universal raves, though no one seems aware of just what was done. The comments tossed my way are usually about flattering lighting (just a diffused or bounced 580EX on a bracket) or the equipment itself (D20).

So the question is, have you done any judicious teeth whitening?
