Smiley piercing is a type of piercing that is attached to a piece of meat called frenulum that connects the gum to the lip. If you wonder what the frenulum is, you can lift up your upper lip and see this small texture in the mirror. He has taken this name because he appears when you laugh.
The full healing of the smiley piercing area will take approximately 1 to 4 months. There are some rules you need to pay attention to in order to ensure the fastest recovery. The frenulum tissue is very thin or small in some people. This may cause your piercing to break. Another risk is that the piercing balls can rub against your teeth and damage the enamel. If you feel it is damaging your teeth, you should remove it or see a dentist for advice. If you use braces, smiley piercings may not suit your insides. Chewing gum is also a risky move. Unintentionally, the gum may stick to your piercing and suddenly pull it out, causing bleeding or tearing. Keep that all in mind if you are going to have such piercing and get inspired!
