You are a beautiful woman with a great smile. Although part of your teeth have not fully erupted (altered passive eruption), your skeletal makeup is such that your upper jaw needs some minor adjustment in height (maxillofacial surgery) to correct a condition called VERTICAL MAXILLARY EXCESS. Therefore, gum lift surgery will absolutely not fix your problem on its own. You can try it first and assess the results. You can always go to jaw surgery after if your are unhappy. Good luck.

for posting your photos. You have a wonderful smile. There are a number of
treatment options designed to reduce the amount of gums that show for people
who are concerned about gummy smiles. Recommending a specific procedure,
however, requires the detailed results of a physical assessment to diagnose the
cause of the gummy smile. As other specialists previously responded, it's
possible that you would benefit from oral surgery to reposition your jaw. That
may be enough, or you may also need laser gum contouring to get the desired
aesthetic results. Good luck.
Hi, thank you for your question. There are a few options that can address your high smile line. I would suggest lip repositioning. This procedure is designed to reduce the unwanted appearance of the gums. This creates a proportionate amount of gum, teeth, and lip and gives the top lip a fuller more aesthetically pleasing look. I would highly encourage you to look into this procedure further. Best of luck to you!
This is a classic example of maxillary excess. This means the upper jaw grew down too long. The most natural and reliable way to fix this is surgically push up the upper jaw.
