Should my case have alternatives other than extractions?

my upper teeth have mild crowding and over jet, lower missing one teeth and slight midline deviation.

My reason for seeking treatment are wanting to improve overall aesthetic: my facial profile is protruding and my teeths are not straight / symmetrical when smiling.

Wound seek your expertise for other alternatives as i dont think my case is so severe to require extractions.

If there is a severe space deficiency, extractions are sometimes recommend to provide space in order to align the teeth properly.
You can also get a second opinion from another orthodontist.
