#Invisalign or not?

It would be so much more helpful to have a photo to go along with your great question.  Not being able to see your mouth makes a diagnosis less definitive, but based on your story, I would present you with these options.

Option #1:  Consult an orthodontist to see about getting metal braces.  (estimated duration of treatment will likely be 2 years or more).

Option #2:  Consult an excellent cosmetic dentist that has wonderful before and after photos of difficult cases.  A cosmetic dentist may be able to veneer and crown many of your teeth in 1-2 appointments, giving you instant and permanent results.  A cosmetic dentist may also be able to use Invisalign alongside additional cosmetic techniques.  
Good luck to you and I hope this helps. "Follow" me on Real Self to ask more questions.
