I've always hated my smile, and now that I'm an adult I'm considering getting braces. However, I don't know if that will be enough, because I noticed that my upper gum protrudes over my lower gums. Could braces help me?

Can braces help me?
Not only could regular braces help but you look like an ideal patient for Invisalign....Just one warning..it looks like you have a strong tongue thrust that is pushing your teeth apart...usually this type of problem makes long term retention difficult so plan on wearing some type of retainer at night "forever"
