Braces AND Porcelain Veneers may be best option
Finding a a provider that can do this may be a challenge.
Braces or Veneers?
At any rate, you might very well need to do a combination of orthopedic/orthodontic treatment and dental restorative treatment (veneers, etc.) to get the look you seek.
If you have to choose one over the other I would suggest orthopedic/orthodontic treatment over veneers because veneers will only change the look of your teeth, it will NOT resolve the crescent profile nor the lack of tooth show.
Also, if you do the orthopedic/orthodontic treatment now you can always go back and do veneers later while doing veneers first precludes you from doing orthopedic/orthodontic treatment later.
When I say orthopedic/orthodontic treatment I am referring to arch development in addition to orthodontic tooth movement. You must find a doctor who understands jaw orthopedics AND orthodontics and even better if he/she understands cosmetic restorations as well.
