Depends on the severity of your condition. My face structure changed quite dramatically because of braces - for the worse, unfortunately. Right now, I'm going through a second round of braces (this time including a jaw surgery) to undo the damage that's been done.
This is definitely something you should ask your orthodontist about in advance.
