Without surgery, it is difficult to achieve long term result. Surgery could be a small surgery under the upper lip which will lengthen the lip or more extensive maxillary reduction and repositioning surgery depending on the findings on examination.

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Though nothing replaces an in-person examination it appears that your lip and teeth appearance are the result of vertical maxillary excess that should be treated with upper jaw surgery to help reduce the gummy appearance of your smile. See an oral maxillofacial surgeon in consultation to discuss your surgical treatment options. Hope this helps.
