His recent Instagram Stories mark the first time that he has shown off said "new smile".
Rylan hasn't explained why his mouth is so swollen, but in 2017, he told the Notebook: "I got my veneers finished the day before I started hosting Big Brother's Bit On The Side, my first presenting job. My mouth was swollen from the anaesthetic, they were brilliant-white, brand new."

Rylan has been struggling with swelling after having his veneers removed
It's likely that the swelling he is currently experiencing is also from anaesthetic used to remove his veneers.
According to the NHS, "after any operation in the mouth, a certain amount of soreness and swelling is inevitable. Your wound is likely to be painful when the anaesthetic works off."
It adds: "You will probably experience some tenderness and swelling for a few days and this is likely to be accompanied by some bruising around the face and neck. This may take two to three days to develop and a week or more to subside."
Back in 2016, Rylan described his teeth as "the biggest mistake" of his life but joked, "To be fair, they've earned me a lot of money."
