Is there something that can be done about my uneven smile. (photo)

I have a very uneven smile I'm very self conscious about it one side turns upward more and the other is lacking. If possible I would like to make both turn upward

Uneven Smile secondary to narrow maxilla and insufficient lip support.

You have a ver narrow maxilla which is why when you smile you have dark buccal corridors and have a six tooth smile.
Ideally you should have a full wide smile showing at least to teeth and possibly 12 or more.

I suggest looking into a DNA Appliance to orthopedically grow your maxilla.

Do you have headaches, TMJ disorders or sleep issues frequently associated with narrow underdeveloped maxillas?
