Hi, I’ve always wanted braces because my front teeth are large and stick out slightly, and the lateral incisors face forward rather than curve around. As you can see in the photo, my top and bottom teeth don’t line up either, making the left side of my face slightly bigger than my right. I wonder if veneers can fix these issues or if I’d have to go with Invisalign first. FYI, I also have TMJ (usually on the right jaw) due to teeth clenching and slight sensitivity in the front teeth.
Since your front teeth are a bit protruded, and you want to bring them in, porcelain veneers are not advisable now!
Why? because then the dentist must cut and shave a lot of healthy and precious teeth to bring your teeth in, almost like a dental crown, which can cause problems in the long run. for more information on porcelain veneers, pros, and cons, indications, click here: https://www.celebritydentist.
My advice as a cosmetic dentist is first to do your tooth movement, retract back your teeth, get the bite and occlusion right, then think about placing porcelain veneers if you want to change the shape and color of your teeth permanently with dental veneers.

You might also consider teeth bleaching before having veneers done. If you desire veneers, it can be a great idea to have a very conservative teeth preparation after bleaching. For the pros and cons of teeth bleaching and whitening, click here:
While going through tooth movement, fixing the crossbite on your left side will expand your teeth more toward your cheek side, so you do not show a black corridor, as it is more evident on the left side.
After teeth movement, see a veneer dentist for consultation if you want to change the shape and color with porcelain veneers.
