What can you do about a Small Smile?
From the little of your face that can be seen in your photos, I would recommend a lip lift for your upper lip. This will slightly shorten your upper lip skin on the outside, which will also slightly roll the pink part of your lip out, making it look larger. Your lower lip position actually doesn't look too bad. Most people don't show their lower teeth when smiling. That actually sometimes looks a little awkward.
Lip Fillers to augment and correct smile
You should have a trial of a conservative amount of filler such as Restylane Silk into the lip line. This filler should augment the lips and give you a fuller smile. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise with facial fillers for the best cosmetic results.
I suggest you consult a board certified facial plastic surgeon to receive the highest quality knowledge, treatment, care and skill available. A consultation provides you the opportunity to relay your concerns and desired outcome to the surgeon while the surgeon can assess your health profile and discuss his/her pertinent advice.

Lip fillers for a nice smile
I appreciate your concern, But I believe that there is no such thing as an ugly smile! Your smile is lovely, so I would recommend conservative lip augmentation with Hyaluronic Acid, like Juvederm plus. Another option is fat transfer which is more permanent. Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon in your area, Good Luck!
