I have the same issues with my appearance. My teeth aren't crooked but I have always had large canine teeth that stick out slightly. Because of this I NEVER smile in public. Last month I decided to stop putting it off and I went to an Orthodontist to get braces.
I have also been saving for a nose job because I think my nose is far too big for my face. Whenever I am hanging out with somebody I secretly try to avoid them seeing the profile of my face (where you can see that my nose is noticeably big). It's sad that in this superficial world we feel the need to obsess over such trivial things. But I do believe that having straight teeth and a smaller nose would help me to feel better about myself. It will at least give me the confidence to smile in public without worrying what people think of my teeth.
Anyway I just thought I'd share that with you.
Because there are days when I hate my face too.
Good luck with everything and I hope that getting surgery will help you to feel better about yourself.
