Do Permalip Implants affect teeth showing? If so, how much?
Doctor Answers 2
Thank you for asking about your Permalip implants.
- Permalip implants will increase the pink of your lip and roll the lip out and up a bit.
- A lip lift (subnasal lift) is often a good combination - if your upper lip is too long.
- To learn more, you will need a consultation because measurements and an examination are essential to be able to give you a reasonable plan and prediction of what to expect.

As a general rule lip implants will not improve or increase tooth show. They add volume which pushes the lip forward but not up enough to create ore tooth show. It would take a combined subnasal lip lift and implants to create greater tooth show and increased lip volume.
