Invisalign treatment for a front crooked tooth
Depending on what the rest of your teeth look like Invisalign might be a good option. What kind of Invisalign case you need will be determined by your treating orthodontist.
Invisalign express is the least invasive option to fixed the crooked front tooth. The aligners will slowly move your teeth into the correct position. You may also get aligners for your lower teeth to correct any minor crowding/spacing.
Your other treatment option is dental bonding or porcelain veneers. These procedures would involve placing a material over your front teeth to give the illusion that they are both straight.
If you like the shape and color of your teeth but they are only crooked, then Invisalign is the better choice.
If you don't like the shape and color and they are crooked then I would consider porcelain veneers.
Crooked Front tooth
An option to invisalign as many may suggest are lingual braces. They go on the inside and can't be seen. They are quicker than invisalign and more precise. Cost can be the same or less. Someone who can do lingual braces for your problem is likely very competent and is a good screening tool for you even if you go with invisalign

The picture is a little blurry. But it seems like you only have some minor crowding. Everything else being equal and not knowing what your bottom teeth look like, it appears that you are a candidate for Invisalign Express.
