Lower lip lift
What you are describing is being recognized more and more by the general population (and plastic surgeons, hopefully) as one of those "signs that you can reveal your true age", just like the hands. Lifting the lower lip is still one of the confounding problems yet to be fully and reliably solved by plastic surgery. The two accepted ways up lifting the lower lip to help hide some of the lower teeth are lower lip V-Y Plasties and chin augmentation. One must realize that raising the lip by 2 to 3 mm is considered a success and if you are expecting more coverage, you should refrain from undergoing this surgery. It's all about expectations, so to speak.I have performed innumerable types of lower lip lift surgeries to various degrees of success. The one I'm most excited about now since I am getting significant elevation unparalleled by past methods is the BILLS procedure (standing for bilateral internal lower lip suspension). This involves three hidden incisions inside the lower mouth. Recovery is fairly rapid and the results are quite significant.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
