Orthodontics should be considered first
While enamelplasty (shaping the teeth) can do well in this case, I suggest getting them straight first. Once straight, you may find that no shaping is needed or wanted, plus the benefits of all teeth lining up.
You are a great candidate to have your teeth reshaped. The amount of tooth structure removal is minimal so there should be no sensitivity.
