What is the best way to even out my lower face/jaw line? (Photo)

I was taped giving a speech and noticed the unevenness of the lower half of my face. I had noticed it before but it did not seem pronounced enough for me to care. However, after seeing myself talking, it looks much more pronounced than I thought. When I open my mouth the right side of my jaw comes out more than the left side making my face look uneven. The left side of my jaw also pops when I open/close my mouth but it has never hurt or bothered me that much. What are my best options?

What you are asking for is referred to as orthognathic surgery.  If you are considering the surgery for appearance alone, I would advise you to not have the surgery.  I do not believe your cant is significant enough for surgery.  It is hardly noticable in the photos.
