Like all lip piercings that requires jewelry that goes inside the mouth, the snake bite piercing runs the risk of causing tooth damage such as broken teeth, receding gum lines, enamel wear, and tooth decay. The multiple piercings of this style encourage an increased risk of these problems.
Accordingly, do snake bites piercings heal?
Snake bite or other lip piercings usually take about two to four months to heal completely. Never attempt to change your jewelry before a piercing is fully healed as this could extend the healing process or cause other complications.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you hide a snake bite piercing?
Once the piercing has healed, you can wear a clear retainer. The retainer is smaller than a stud and designed to hide your piercing while keeping the hole filled. You should never use a retainer in the first few days after getting your piercing.
