I have just finished my second round of ortho (did not wear my retainer as a kid) and although I am very happy with my teeth I have become obsessed with how I can have a more symmetrical smile. The gum on my right lateral incisor is about 1mm lower than my left and they are both lower than my other teeth. I went to the periodontist and they said I wasn’t a candidate for crown lengthening because my teeth are too small, I was wondering if there are any other solutions to make my smile more symmetrical and just look better?

If the periodontist has said you're not suitable, then that's the end of it. I think you have a lovely smile. In fact, when people have perfectly sized and toilet-bowl white teeth, it looks very unnatural.
