Based on the severity of crookedness in my teeth, how long will it take braces to straighten them?

These are my teeth. My parents are saying they're fine and I don't need braces but I clearly do. How long though?

Maybe your parents can't afford braces? Nobody dies from crooked teeth.
You'd have to see an orthodontist, but let's guess at least 12 months of braces.

Braces can be very traumatic as well as expensive. The orthodontist may want some teeth pulled to make room. I've seen severe bone, root and pulp damage. I seen smiles become permanently uneven (canted). If you don't wear a retainer, your teeth may move back as before.

In fact, they can. My dad is literally worth $2 mil but he's so stingy
