Should I get tooth braces? (Photo)

I'm 22. I just visited a dentist and recommended me not get braces because my teeth are just okay. However, I've always had this feeling that my upper teeth are big and forward facing. There's slight disorientation on the bottom teeth. Should I get my teeth fixed? How long would it take?

Braces can be life changing

I am not sure why the dentist said not to get braces, since you clearly have teeth that are not well aligned.  There are many methods to get straight teeth, and often don't take as long as previously thought.  I suggest more opinions, from an orthodontist and a dentist with experience in braces.
