Orthodontics would be best #DrSoftTouch
There are options for enhancing your smile without removing teeth. Sometimes removing teeth is the easiest way so it may be suggested, but now days the need for extractions can be eliminated. I would recommend seeing an orthodontist for a second opinion. However, I do think that orthodontics is the best option for you. I hope this helps.

BRACES IS YOUR SOLUTION
thi is called protrusive dental , and they are more angulated than normal, POINT A AND B, are behind this teeth angles, so yes, of course you are a candidate for extractions, without seeing a oath analysis, look at your arch, teeth are crowded, and you have a wide arch, veneers will look big,
go for extractions, on bicuspids, and trust your doctor, braces, not invisalign, those do not work for cases like yours, you need full anchorage, and braces, for at least 1 year, and at the end you will have a beautiful smile.

All the best,
Extractions are for extreme situations
A combination of the two is likely best.
Second Ortho Opinion needed. Consider the DNA Appliance and Epigenetic Orthodontics.
The DNA Appliance is associated with less Inflamation and Pain and is only worn 12-14 hours/day.
Extracting four bicuspids can lead to snoring, sleep apnea, headache, migraines and TMJ disorders including poor posture. It can also lead to a sunken look to the face as lip support is lost.
Bleaching can give whiter brighter teeth as well . Veneers placed after DNA Appliance therapy would be far more cosmetic than utilizing them alone.
