An "Overbite" is an Orthodontic Problem

You don't.

An "overbite" is an orthodontic problem not a dental problem. Trying to fix something like this with dentistry will not turn out well.

FYI: Most people also call their upper teeth being too far out in front of their lower teeth "overbite," but the correct term for this is overjet. I assume you are using the common vernacular.
