You can't tell...: Unless you have a dental degree. Allow your local dentist or orthodontist evaluate your malocclusion and advise you if you are a candidate.

Talk to orthodontist: It takes on average case time is 6-9 months and cost average is $5000. See an Invisalign provider, and have a consultation and evaluation. You will need X-rays and photos and computerized screening to make sure you are a good candidate for this treatment. Most likely, it will work. Good luck. Talk to orthodontist only about Invisalign. It can be a good alternative to traditional braces.

Can't: without seeing your teeth, no one on this site can really tell you (and if they do, do not believe them!). You need to see an orthodontist to assess this. Most provide free consults.

Consult: Call your dentist for a consult and he will tell you the next steps in your treatment. Good luck as invisalign is a very nice approach to getting that perfect bite.
