Will my gums show more if I were to get braces with extractions for my protruding mouth? (Photo)

My gums shows a bit when I smile already and I'm afraid of having too much of a 'gummy' looking smile

Gummy Smile

PLEASE don't extract teeth to do braces. You definitely don't need to extract teeth. Your gummy smile can be easily corrected with minor surgery. You have a gorgeous smile that would be severely compromised by taking teeth out. Good luck!
