Do not get Dental Veneers!

Veneers are a wonderful and life changing procedure, but they are not for everyone.  You are not a good candidate and if you proceed with the treatment I can guarantee you that you will eventually regret the decision.  Please consider straightening your teeth with orthodontics first.  Your teeth will look great with deep bleaching/ whitening + straightening with braces or invisalign + filing the edges after straightening.  If you decide to get veneers after straightening, they will look better and last longer.

The veneer procedures are irreversible so you do need to be sure that you want them and that the veneers will give you the look you desire.  It appears that you have a few bite issues which could affect the longevity and success of your veneer.  I would get an orthodontic consult first but if you still want the veneers then go for it!  Good luck!

Before you will destroy your teeth with veneers you should get the consult from an 

orthodontist who will be able to correct your bite. You need to correct not only the position of the central teeth, but the relationship between upper and lower teeth. Once enamel is removed it can`t be restored back.
