Gummy Smile Correction
Yes, and it's important to have the x-rays of these teeth evaluated so that the CEJ (where the tooth enamel ends and the root begins) is not exposed during the surgery. This could lead to the possibility of needing veneers, which is best to know ahead of time prior to the surgery.
Gum Recontouring on lateral incisors
The tissue can grow back based on level of gum when a gingivetomy is done requiring removal of bone. I do not think it would be necessary in your case.
