I have a dominant leg problem too. Just neither the right or the left. Anyway, if you think it is based on a mental imbalance rather than that of physical/biomechanical imbalance, you might consider some advice I have heard (prob here). Habitualizing starting the two most dominant turns of every run, the first and the last, with the less dominant leg may make a difference over time. The first turn of every run tends to be an intellectually dominant turn as we use it to make decisions for the following run and the last turn tends to be a physically dominant turn as we are also using it to stop or slow down.
While cleanliness and consistency of technique stem from foundational elements of our skiing, they also highly influence the aesthetics of the final product. For skiing, form IS function where it is found that the best technique is also the most aesthetically pleasing to watch (for those with a developed eye). Expert skiers that have not had the benefit of a "clean and consistent" path of development, such as a career racer or any competitive racer with adolescent beginnings tend to have, some technical issues with faulty motor patterns tend to exist. While the cleanliness aspect is more foundational than the consistency aspect, it is a more complex issue upon which I'd rather not elaborate. Consistency, on the other hand, can be influenced without meddling with the foundation of one's skiing.
Rhythm can be seen as a stable platform of foundational movement from which we can more easily execute other adjustments/corrections without losing flow. We all know that a loss of flow can stand out like a sore thumb and crash what would otherwise be a good set of turns. It is my opinion that establishing and consistently managing specifically chosen turn rhythms provide a "platform" of movement that carries its own momentum and a focus that tends to vacate to the intuitive process once established by intent. It is this intuitive momentum that can be relied upon for a skier to maintain flow in the face of mistakes and correction, both of which, reduce the aesthetic qualities of anyone's skiing.
While a non-symmetrical and excessive tip lead may be a visual indicator of underlying issues, I don't think it amounts to much of an aesthetic issue. In terms of "choosing your battles" of improvement, you may decide to leave it alone and not worry about it. However, if you were to reach the conclusion that you would like to make a go at your highest potential as a skier, this is not something that can be corrected in the bumps where this faulty motor pattern is likely supported and encouraged by a network of highly established reinforcement cues and stimuli.
