How should I start for fixing my teeth? Braces? Veneers? Anything else? (Photos)

I would recommend getting a comprehensive exam and making sure your back teeth don't have problems and that you don't have periodontal disease. For your smile, I would recommend a gingivectomy on the front 4 teeth, between the canines to raise the gum line. Then I would have your teeth whitened to the color you want. Then I would put crowns on the teeth between the canines. I don't like veneers because the retention is not as good as crowns. Crowns are also stronger and longer lasting. Remember that whitening systems don't whiten crowns and fillings which is why I would do it before the crowns.
