xrays of your teeth will be needed to see if you only need gum lift or some bone recomtouring .
from what your picture shows;
gum lift on its own will not be enough to correct your gummy smile
Depending on what your expectations are.
you might also need procedures such as ;
lip repositioning surgery. Or a temporary fix with Botox
these 2 procedures, will help with the hyper mobility of your upper lip when you smile , so you wont show as much gum tissue when you smile
