Can my overbite be corrected with braces and no surgery? (photo)

I am 22 and noticed I had a chipped tooth then got thinking about my overbite. My two front bottom teeth touch my gums behind my top teeth when it's shut. I've noticed my bottom teeth are slightly angled towards the inside of my mouth too. I was wondering if my overbite can be fixed using braces? And do I need to fix the chipped teeth before getting them? Scared of dentists and self conscious about my teeth.
