Are Mewing Results Permanent?

Mewing is a technique that has become popular in recent years to improve facial structure and enhance facial attractiveness.

Many people are wondering if mewing can provide permanent results. In this blog post, we will look at the science behind mewing, how long it takes to see results, and if there are any associated risks.

Mewing results will be permanent as long as you continue mewing. The effects of mewing are very gradual and nearly impossible to revert.

The Answer

This answer varies on what change we’re talking about. For example, mewing does a good job of hiding a double chin temporarily. However, once you quit mewing, the double chin will inevitably come back since a double chin is mainly caused by high body fat.

On the other hand, if we’re talking about the expansion of the palate and forward growth of the face, then yes!

Mewing can change your face in a short period of time just from the posture alone, but there are also long-term results that take months and even years to begin showing truly.

This comes at a cost, though. If you were to quit mewing for years and replace it with mouth breathing and bad posture, you’d revert back.

Here is a list of changes caused by mewing that are temporary (meaning they only apply when mewing) and permanent:


  • Double Chin
  • A shorter, more compact-looking face caused by your lower jaw being pushed upwards.
  • Very sharp jawline; you can achieve a sharp jawline naturally, but this can be emphasized temporarily by mewing.


  • More forward-grown face
  • Less recessed, stronger maxilla
  • Longer lower jaw
  • Better breathing
  • Better posture
  • Fixed overbites/underbites; any malocclusions
  • Sharper features
  • Stronger jawline

Disclaimer: I am not promising you will receive all the listed benefits. However, these are changes that have been documented that are very possible. Not everyone will achieve the same results from mewing.

How Long Will It Take To Get Permanent Results?

Before we dive into whether or not mewing results are permanent, let’s talk about how long it takes to see results in the first place.

The amount of time it takes to see results from mewing can vary depending on a few factors, including age, the severity of your facial asymmetry, and how consistently you practice the technique.

For most people, it can take anywhere from a few months to a year or more to see significant changes in their facial structure.

While this number does seem way too long, mewing is something you should do for your health in general. Since your facial structure will only slowly deteriorate if you were to continue your mouth breathing or have an incorrect posture.

Plus if you’re looking to get rid of that stubborn double chin, mewing can fix that instantly!

How To Keep Your Mewing Results Forever

To maintain your mewing results, you need to continue practicing the technique on a regular basis. This means keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth throughout the day and while sleeping.

Additionally, it’s important to maintain good oral posture, including proper breathing and swallowing techniques.

Make sure you aren’t reverting back to mouth breathing, and try to adapt your mewing technique as much as possible.

Have a mindset that mewing is a lifelong commitment, not a chore.

It will get easier and eventually become natural and even enjoyable. It’s calming to have something to do that is actually contributing to long-term benefits.

Don’t make the mistake of seeing some results, getting satisfied, and quitting. There’s still a long road ahead and so much more to reap!

Mistakes That Might Destroy Your Mewing Results

Some several detrimental habits and mistakes will destroy your mewing results in a matter of time:

Having the wrong mindset: Like stated above, think of mewing as a lifelong habit. I understand the mild discomfort of just starting.

I’ve been there, trust me. But if you trust the process, you’ll find mewing will become quite comfortable, and pretty quickly too!

Not mewing all the time: Most people convince themselves that they are mewing all the time when in reality, they’re not.

Sometimes, the habit of mewing slips our thoughts, and we stop mewing without even realizing it. That’s why it’s important to be mindful and regularly check that you haven’t stopped mewing.

Not fixing other issues: Mewing isn’t a miracle cure. There are many factors other than mewing that have a drastic effect on your face.

Such as how you sleep/snore, eat, chew, swallow, breathe, and much more. Many people do these incorrectly without even noticing.

Believe it or not, there are incorrect and correct ways to do all these common habits.

What Mewing Can’t Fix Permanently

While mewing can help improve your facial structure and alignment, there are some things that it can’t fix permanently.

For example, if you have severe jaw misalignment or a significant overbite, mewing alone may not correct these issues.

In some cases, you may need to seek orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners, to achieve the desired results.

It’s also important to remember that genetics play a role in your facial structure, so some aspects of your appearance may be difficult to change through mewing alone.

Sometimes, severe malocclusions can stop you from mewing correctly. If this happens, ensure you get it checked as soon as possible. In the meantime, do what you can do with mewing.

Is Mewing Worth It For Permanent Results?

So, is mewing worth it for permanent results?

The answer is yes but with some caveats.

While mewing can be an effective way to improve your facial structure and alignment, it’s not a magic solution that will keep your results forever.

To see permanent results from mewing, you must be consistent with the technique and maintain good oral posture.

Additionally, it’s important to remember that mewing may not be able to fix all aspects of your facial structure, particularly if you have severe jaw misalignment or overbite.

I wish you good luck on their mewing journey; it may be hard, and not seeing results can be painful, trust me, I know. But the more effort and time you give mewing, the more it gives. Stay patient & stay mewing!
