You can first go for scaling or cleaning of teeth that would remove all the stains and tartar on your teeth then go for correction of alignment of your teeth through braces which would require about one to 1.5 years ..after all that when your braces are removed and cleaning is done wait for sometime and then if not satisfied with the colour of your teeth then you can go for bleaching..there's no point getting bleaching done and then going for braces..tc..

Although the picture that you have posted is not very clear, but still extrinsic and intrinsic stains are visible on your teeth..... a procedure called as scaling will remove the extensive deposits on the teeth and the intrinsic deposits can be corrected using different types of bleaching methods..... if you do not want to go for laminates, the best treatment option for you will be Orthodontic (braces) treatment which will last for somewhere around 1 to 1.5 years and give you the best possible aesthetic outcome..... the treatment cost varies from dentist to dentist depending upon the location, experience and the type of technique used for your treatment.....

You definitely first require scaling n polishing and you can use then whitening pastes..... Even if not satisfied with shade you can go for bleaching. But its temporary n not last long.... Also every individual has its own natural shade. One has to accept that.
Lastly you can go for ortho treatment for your malaligned tooth. Its best to do that. And cost of every treatment varies a lot depending upon choice of treatment, quality of products n  dentist also.

Be patient n calm a bit because natural teeth color is designated by god and it usually depends on your skin color.For example if you see white foreigners they have yellow teeth and contrary people of westindies have much whiter teeth....this is aesthetics given by god.
Although there are teeth whitening procedures which includes bleaching can be done to make your teeth whiter.But the point to remember is it is not the permanent solution.
Bleaching is done by various methods and techniques.So depending on that cost varies from 8000-20000.
For your maligned teeth you can go for an orthodontic treatment...as this is the right age for such a treatment.
For making your shade of teeth one or two shade lighter you can use whitening tooth paste

Hello, Acc to your complaint, I feel you are not happy with the colour of your teeth. They could be yellow due to tartar or stains or the colour itself internally could be yellowish.

I would suggest you to go for teeth cleaning(scaling & polishing). Still if u feel your teeth r yellow and you want brighter teeth, you can go for bleaching.

Regarding misaligned teeth, It would be best if you go for Orthodontic consultation(with the braces specialist doctor) to know about options for aligning your teeth.

Costs of the treatments may vary on basis of the area and the nature of the practice.
Avg cost for scaling is around 1000-1500/-
Bleaching may go anywhere from 6000-10000/- orthodontic treatments have a range acc to the nature of braces used from 35000/- to 150000/-

Hope you get the best treatment done.

You need a professional dental cleaning first (that's scaling and polishing). It will definitely improve your tooth color. You can decide to go for bleaching of your teeth based on their color after scaling. Your teeth can be aligned with the help of orthodontic treatment.
Scaling and polishing would cost INR 1200 to 1500.
Bleaching would cost approximately INR 10000 to 12000
The cost of Orthodontic treatment starts from INR 20000.
Feel free to contact me at Smilekraft Nagpur. In the mean time keep smiling.
