Orthodontic Treatment is the best option for you with proximal stripping.

Sure your teeth can be straightened without extraction of your teeth. The sides of your teeth will be trimmed in a way that it will not effect your teeth. The gap created will be used to align the teeth. This process is called as "proximal stripping". However, veneers are not a good idea for correcting the alignment.
Health Tips
Please visit an orthodontist with a OPG and a lateral cephalogram. This will ensure faster treatment and avoid multiple visits to the orthodontist

yes your teeth can be straightened without extraction. Space requirement for correcting your malalignment is not a lot. You would have to undergo a bit of trimming of the sides of adjacent teeth known as proximal reduction. That would be enough in my opinion.

Yes it can be. Mild steel striping of adjacent teeth and application of braces would work. It can be done without extraction. Visit an orthodontist..

Hi ,yes The teeth straightening can be done without extraction .First the impressions of your upper & lower teeth should be taken & a mock up will be done on the study models to give you a idea how it will look after smile designing & then depending on the case with or without rootcanal (sometimes intentional root canal has to be done for better results) you can go for metal free caps or crowns which will look aesthetically good & have warranty also.

Definitely!!! All of your front teeth will come in alignment once your treatment will be over. With proper treatment planning and proximal reduction ,i.e. decreasing the width of  teeth ,we can avoid their proclination or jetting out too.

Yes I think it can be alligned without extraction of any tooth. In order to create space for allignment we will have to do proximal reduction of .5 mm of few teeth. Proximal means sides of tooth. In such cases caste analysis gives you the best picture. For that you will have to visit a dentist.
Next Steps
go visit a dentist tell him take impression of both upper and lower arch and do caste analysis to determine the space required for allignment.
