For now, I'd prefer filing down my front teeth if it makes 50% better. Can dentist slighlt file down about 1-2 mm to make it look better ? Right now, i have no sensitivity from chipped teeth.

I think shortening and recontouring your incisors, also called enamelplasty ( shaping the enamel ), is a good idea in your case. This should provide much improvement for very little time and expense.
File down a chipped tooth
Most of the time, dentists are there to preserve enamel and not file down teeth, but in this case, I think it would be the appropriate treatment. Your front central incisors are much longer than the other teeth. By shortening and contouring these two teeth, you will have a very nice smile with even teeth and no chip!
Contour Your chipped teeth.
you can easily fixed the uneven appearance by microdiscing chipped tooth and the adjacent tooth.
