1) In your example sentences, it's 唇亡齿寒, not 脣亡齿寒.

2) We already have an entry for 唇亡齿寒:
唇亡齒寒 唇亡齿寒 [chun2 wang2 chi3 han2] /lit. without the lips, the teeth feel the cold (idiom); fig. intimately interdependent/

3) We also have the traditional form 脣亡齒寒 implicitly by virtue of the following entry:
脣 唇 [chun2] /variant of 唇[chun2]/

4) 脣亡齿寒 is an incorrect simplified form. It should be 唇亡齿寒.

(Hat tip to Mo.)
