    Hello there!

    My lips look asymmetrical and I wonder if the reason is my shifted midline or my slight underbite. The corner of the mouth on the left lifts higher than the right and the smile and my resting face look assymmetrical. I have a suspicion that the jaw might be off to the right too. I'm not bothered by the midline or the bite as no one notices but the effects they have on the rest of the face.

    Many thanks!

    Did you have a history of trauma or braces (orthodontics)? An orthodontist may be best able to answer your questions.
