Move the teeth back in place with braces

by M.H.L

I have 2 crowns on my front teeth since 2004. When I was eating this week one of them broke and fell off and the other one is shifted slightly out of place. My dentist wants me to see an orthodontist to see if it is stable enough to move the teeth back in place with braces.

I am wondering if it makes sense to get the shifted crown back in place since I feel that it probably has weakened over time like the broken one. Should I ask them to remove it and just get 2 new ones? I don't want to waste money on the braces and afterwards it falls off. I would like to hear your opinion.

Braces NEW

If it were my teeth, I would also suggest going through the braces to straighten the teeth out. New crowns can be placed on teeth, but if the teeth are crooked the crowns aren't going to ever look just right. Even if the teeth are week and require future dental treatment (bonding, crowns, etc) it is still better to have them in the anatomically correct position in order for their treatment to look and function at its best.
