The more inputs you make to the bike, the more likely you are to unsettle the chassis. However, chances are you aren't close enough to the limits for additional steering inputs to be detrimental, especially if they are smooth. Ideally, you want to keep your line through a corner, but a lot of times corrections are needed. And the bike will handle most of those corrections in stride.
If you watch motorcycle racing (AMA, SBK, MotoGP) you'll see that sometimes they have to make corrections mid-corner if they get in too hot, or to avoid other riders, but for the most part they stick to their lines. That's where you're going to be fastest.
That being said, I think you'd be better off focusing on a good line through the corners, and you will become smoother. If you're just trying to get into the corner as fast as you can, you need to change your approach.
