In brief: Orthodontics

You will need to be evaluated by an orthodontist.
There are different degrees of overbite and overjet and if they are severe they can be corrected with orthodonticts. Early diagnosis is helpful as it is easier to correct these problems while patients are still growing.

In brief: Braces +/- surgery

It depends on the extent of the overbite, the anatomy fo the jaw and the patients desires.
For some, orthodontic treatment may be all that is needed. Others may need corrective jaw surgery called orthognathic surgery in conjunction with braces. Finally, some minor cosmetic issues can be treated with crowns or veneers.
