In brief: 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)

In brief: 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.
