Ideally an Orthodontic treatment. Better visit a dental practice who are offering both of this treatments. A clinical evaluation is critical in such cases.
Next Steps
Consult Dr Salem Tariq Shaikh, Mumbai as their office has got both the services, smile designing and Orthodontic braces  available.

Hello, It's always better to undergo Orthodontic treatment as it is a long term solution with maintainable results. But we have to check in the patient's mouth and her x-rays for better guidance. Orthodontic treatment will not require any medication or any diet restrictions so it may not be a hinderence during the pregnancy period but Oral hygiene maintenance is utmost important during pregnancy.

Hii. I am Dr.Maitry.i would like to sugget for orthodontic treatment. Actually the result of orthodontic treatment is permanent. There is no mention of the patient's age.if she is pregnant now then don't go for the orthodontic treatment right now. Basically to correct the alignment of the tooth there may be some requirement of extraction. In pregnancy cases extraction is not suggested.after delivery she can do her orthodontic treatment...The age should be below 30
