I would think so: See an Orthodontist for a consultation to find out what can or cannot be done, cost and length of time required....and don't look for bargains.

Perhaps: There's a lot of questions to be answered first. Find the best Orthodontic Specialist you can and seek advice. The combination of crowding and underbite suggests a skeletal malrelationship, not just dental, so make sure you see a Pro.

Underbite: Sometimes teeth may appear to be in a good, stable position, but in reality, they are in a "compensated" position. Seeking an experienced orthodontist in conjunction with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon would be the next step.
