Gummy smile (showing more more) after braces, anyone?

Hi

I have put on braces for about 3 weeks now. I'm not sure if its phycological or its really that I feel it showing more of my gum when I smile now.

got my upper braced today but its not hurting ?

Hi all,

I have gotten my upper braced today but I do not feel any pressure or pain from, unlike my lower where I instantly feel pressure being put on and hurting.

Does it mean there is not enough pressure put on it? Should I go back to have it tighten a little?

anyone experience thsi before?
