Braces are definitely an option.  I would recommend a consultation with your local orthodontist to discuss your concerns and available treatment options. Alternative treatment options may include clear aligner therapy like invisalign®, removable retainer like devices (inman aligner), lingual (behind the teeth) braces, or other specialty techniques that align the anterior teeth (see attached video).

I hope this information was helpful.
