In brief: Depends

Most orthodontic cases take 18 to 24 months to complete.
If it takes a minimal amount of tooth movement to get your teeth straight and your bite is a normal angle class 1, then it can be done in 12 months or maybe less.

In brief: Severity/technique

Depends on severity of the problem. Combined dental/skeletal malocclusions require more time.
There are some periodontal surgical techniques that when combined with braces can shorten time in rx for adults. Talk to a qualified orthodontic specialist for evaluation of your individual problem and all of the possible solutions.

In brief: It's possible

It is possible to have minor corrections done in a year's time frame.
..The time frame is dependent of the severity of the malocclusion.
