Is veneering this tooth an option? #DrSoftTouch
Due to the position of your canine, I would not recommend a porcelain veneer. The best treatment option for you at this point would be orthodontics to properly align your teeth. See an orthodontist for a consultation to determine your options. I hope this helps. Click save on the save button below my name, so that you may ask me more questions in the future.
Veneer on Canine
I would suggest doing composite veneer first and evaluate how you feel about result. It is possible to also reshape other teeth to improve overall appearance. If you do a ceramic veneer the composite will serve as your starting point. You probably will need reduction on the canine.
Long term orthodontics is your best option and due to narrow maxilla I would suggest DNA Appliance
