Ortho/DDS consult: Have your general dentist and orthodontist confer on a treatment plan.
Dr. Arnold Malerman
Orthodontics 53 years experience
Yes: If your braces treatment was done by a specialist Orthodontist, he/she created the best possible platform on which the Restorative Dentist can now do cosmetic restorative e treatment. Ask your Orthodontist to consult with your General Dentist to stage your restorative treatment. Retainers may have to be adjusted or remade as restorative treatment proceeds.
Dr. Andres Carbunaru

Yes: Always wear a retainer ( otherwise your teeth will shift). Get a consultation with a Prosthodontist, he will help you with the overall treatment plan ( implants, whitening, possible veneers)
