How can I fix my asymmetric smile? (photos)

Soft tissues can make hard tissues appear "off"
While you do look VERY symmetrical, you aren't 100%. Nobody is. Sometimes lips move more on one side, gumlines show more on a side, etc.... The solution MAY simply be using a laser to contour gums, maybe not. It is best to find an experienced cosmetic dentist that can evaluate your smile and make suggestions.
Asymmetric Face and Smile
You are very observant. Facial asymmetry is NOT unusual; no one has a perfectly symmetric face but there are also those who suffer more asymmetry than others. Causes of facial asymmetry are numerous and varied.
Facial asymmetry can be reversed if underdeveloped areas of the face are allowed to develop. This is done through a process called epigenetic orthodontics. Finding a doctor who understands epigenetic orthodontics can sometimes be a challenge but certainly worth your investment of time and effort.
