got my smiley done yesterday! by far the least painful piercing i’ve ever gotten
got dental x-rays today with my smiley piercing in. thought this was at least a little inter lol.
Saw someone else show their x-ray and thought i would chime in with mine from 2 years ago :P they made me take my smiley piercing out, which would’ve made for a way cooler photo but whatever. (Also yes im getting my wisdom teeth ripped out in due time)
Current piercings: 38mm(1 1/2 inch) lobes, 8mm(0g) cartilage punch, 2.4mm(10g) nostrils, 5mm(4g) septum, 1.2mm(16g) smiley, 1.6mm(14g) bridge, cheeks/dimples, and philtrum/medusa. Also got 18 tattoos 😄 reddit.com/gallery/iza915
Would I suit a labret? It's the only other facial piercing I'm considering, but I'm not 100% on it yet. I also have a smiley piercing, if that changes anything :D
hello!! new to the com, currently have 12 piercings, two traditional nose piercings, septum, vertical, smiley, 4 in the ears, both nipples and a dermal that my hair is covering. do you guys think an eyebrow piercing would be a good final facial piercing? v.redd.it/66v7admnetp51
Folks with smileys, how long has your piercing lasted?
I’ve heard that smiley piercings only really last 5-8 years because of all of the damage it can have on tooth enamel/gum lines and I’m just wondering how true that is and what your personal experience has been with yours. Ive had mine for about 7 months now and I really love it, I’ve been to the dentist once since having it and they commented on how clean I’ve been able to keep it and that it looks good so far.
Side note I’m so bummed with the timing, I had it for about 2 weeks before having to basically wear a mask everywhere I go so now no one even knows it exists lol
I’m going to get my other nostril piercing tomorrow,I’m thinking of adding a smiley,is my gap teeth a spoiler?is three the facial piercing lucky number? reddit.com/gallery/j5sgax

i never had a gap tooth before, even prior to braces, and i got a smiley piercing about 6 months ago, i took it out to change it and noticed i’ve developed a pretty sizable gap tooth! i loved my piercing but i guess i have to retire it now, my teeth are the one thing i was confident about :(

vin with a fake smiley piercing what crimes will he commit ...
My current piercings and the ones I’m considering. I’m probably gonna get a smiley as well. I have second lobes but nothing in if you couldn’t tell. I’m also stretching my lobes, not sure of my goal size exactly yet but that may affect what I want. Please lmk your thoughts and suggestions 💖
So I have crooked/yellow teeth that I'm really insecure about... Would it be a good idea to get a smiley piercing? I really want one to make me feel more confident about my smile but I'm unsure. Thank you :)
Thought I'd share my nose piercings and my tongue web that no one ever sees. Eventually all my piercings will go with the opal theme. I don't have any other face piercings apart from my smiley but do you guys think anything will suit me because I'm thinking of getting some more? Thank youu
smiley piercing question.
I really like/ want a smiley piercing, i dont want gum damage though. Is it possible to have the smiley for a short amount of time without causing damage. Even if i could have it for 6 months its been a dream piercing of mine.
Here’s the smiley piercing from my last post! It’s hard to see but it’s the only pic I have!
Would I suit an eyebrow piercing? I’ve got my smiley and vertical labret. I am going to redo septum but I’m contemplating the eyebrow. Not sure if I’d suit it but I really want to!
Got a smiley - my first piercing (other than my lobes)! Trying to be more confident about my smile.

Two dental gems as an alternative for smiley piercing
So I've been thinking about getting a smiley piercing, but I'd like to get something that doesn't damage my gums / enamel. I then remembered those "dental gem stones" which were popular ~2000. It then came to my mind, that if I were to take two (silver or black ones, not the gemstones) and place them on my teeth, I might get a similar effect. Has anyone ever tried them or done a similar thing?
got my smiley done today😄 its my 19th piercing :)
Smiley piercing hack ig. If you want to hide your smiley for an interview, family event, or just because you’re kinda bored of it just put a piece of eyebrow jewelry in!
Smiley piercing closing up
Hello guys. I have an appointment with the dentist this Friday. Which means i’ll have to remove my smiley piercing. I’m afraid it’ll close up and won’t be able to put it back once i’m out.
Can it close up in the span of about 2/3 hours? Thank you!
( i’ve had it since late February )
Itching for needle therapy once shops are open again. Piercing suggestions? Tongue piercings, Monroe, and smiley are off the table. Everything else = fair game.
I'm super worried that my smiley piercing is slightly falling or is lower, it hasn't ripped or anything, it feels like its not in place and I've had it for well over a year has anyone else had this problem?
Some questions about smiley piercing
It's been nearly a year since I got my septum pierced, also my first piercing, and now when this COVID bullshit blows over I am thinking of complementing it with a smiley. I have some questions about the piercing after I did some research:
1- I work in a hospital and as such, they aren't the most fond of the more "outrageous" piercings. The septum is easy to hide, but what about the smiley? Is it possible to flip it like the septum into complete hiding?
2- One thing I've read about and makes me worried is potential tooth and gum damage. I've read stuff from it being an inevitability to it being only a concern if you bear a beaded ring (I want to go for the barbell). So where's the truth here?
3- One other thing I'm worried about is that I've read a few things about this piercing being temporary, either because you will have to remove it due to question 2, or that the body will eventually reject it. I'm excited about getting this done, but if it's really temporary it also puts me off a lot. What of it?
4- And the old age question: how is it pain wise, specially compared to the septum? The septum barely hurt at all, I just felt the prick of the needle and then it was over. I've read several accounts ranging from "one of the least painful piercings" to "more painful than most fleshier piercings." What do you think?
Gum Erosion and Smiley Piercing Questions and Worries
I have to say that even when I smile I miss my smiley that somehow got ripped out at a festival, always feels empty :c (/r/piercing)
Hi, a few days ago I woke up and my smiley piercing (which I’ve had since November of 2017) was really sore. I’ve never had an issue with it and thought it might be a small infection so I’ve been swilling with salt water twice a day and some of the inflamed-ness has gone down, but I’ve looked today and realised that the hole is suddenly much bigger/longer?! Have I yanked it (I have dyspraxia so v accident prone lol), or is this it rejecting? It’s my favourite piercing so I would be SO sad to remove it.
Are smiley piercings prone to shrinkage? because if so I guess I’ll just wait for it to heal up a little (it doesn’t affect the way it looks from the front so I could deal with a bigger hole aesthetically)
how do you feel about SMILEY piercings?
just grabbing a few opinions on this type of piercing! vote and comment on it more if u like!
Teeth whitening with smiley piercing.
So, I was wondering how these two things go together. Is it possible to get your teeth whitened at a dentist with a smiley piercing, and do you have to take it out during the process?
I feel like all my piercings are more symmetric or centered, I also have smiley and belly button piercing, just cant see it in this pic
I got my smiley done three months ago! I laughed my ass off at the comments people made on my piercer's post (it was her first time doing the piercing and she was proud of her work) Anyone else have this piercing? How long did you wait to change jewelry?
Had a little fun at the piercing parlor. Got my smiley and tooth gems done! Couple more facial piercings to go and then I'll start working my way down ;)
Smiley piercing and dental health
Hi guys! I've just quit smoking and I'm thinking about getting a smiley piercing to celebrate! I'm just wondering from anyone who has one how it has affected your teeth. I assume my dentist won't like it much but I'm mostly just wondering if anyone has experienced significant enamel erosion from it. Also any other side effects from healing and having the piercing.
Thanks in advance :)
Smiley Piercing ( looks bad?? Need new horse shoe??) Tell me what you think
Hello guys! I just got my smiley piercing with a curved barbell. I’m thinking about changing it to a horseshoe but i’m afraid it’ll damage my gum. My piercer told me i can get a plastic / silicone horseshoe or a metal one but with plastic / silicone balls. Are those materials appropriate for a smiley?
How was your Smiley Piercing Experiences?
Im considering getting my smiley done soon and I want to know what your overall experiences with it like how did it effect your everyday life. Was it annoying to eat? When did yours heal? How do you clean it?
"Smiley" piercings are idiotic & unappealing
So for those who haven't heard of a smiley piercing, it if a piercing of the thin web that connects your gums to your lips. Smiley is the top webbing, frowny is the bottom webbing, and then theres one in the webbing under your tongue.
Not only does it grind and wear at your teeth, gums, and lips, but it is really prone to reject and get damaged or ripped out, because of how thin and fragile the webbing is.
Not to mention it just looks bad. It looks like it's some gunk stuck in your teeth. I see it all over and it just bothers me immensely. If someone has one I just can't look at it or I get thoughts about all that can go wrong with it and how in-the-way it is, and can't focus on them talking.
I could go on and on about other inconvenient, dangerous, or annoying piercings, but those take the cake
do smiley piercings always grow out
I got my smiley done a few months ago and i really love it, but all my friends say after a year or two they slowly rip through the frenulum and fall out, is that likely to happen? how common is it? i’ve seen people this has happened to and people who have had it for years with no issue
So I got some xrays done today at the dentist, and my smiley and septum piercings showed up, my dental hygienist didn't even know I had the smiley done until now lol
Any idea what i should get for a new piercing? Ive got an industrial in my left ear, helix and conch in the right, 10mm 1sts and regular 2nds in both, my nose, septum, eyebrow, smiley, cyber bites, tongue, and belly button done already. Getting both nips done in the new year.
Should i get a lip ring, Smiley or bridge piercing next?🤔
my mom forbade facial piercings but she forgot about oral ones, do you think I would suit a smiley? and are they easy to hide?
i currently have a septum and a smiley (not pictured) suggestions for my next piercing?
Got my smiley piercing done last month, every closed minded redneck in this town made me feel really shitty about it. So I did what anybody in this subreddit would do. Got MORE piercings!
Hey everyone, thinking about getting a smiley but don't want to damage my teeth. Have anyone had issues with the piercing rubbing on their enamel?
