What Portion Of My Teeth Would Be Discarded If I Went For Crowns?

Q.
Hello doc. I am 37 yrs old .my front two teeth are not only bigger in size when compared to others but they are inclined a bit forward too.At this age I don’t want to go for braces or total cosmetic change.can contouring of these teeth be done? According to my local dentist my teeth are otherwise healthy .but one of the upper incisor has crowning, right-side of the upper
jaw (canine) was missing , so here is a bridging too. My main concern is an overbite because of the two teeth.and if I opt for the cosmetic change like crown of the upper central teeth, how much of the original teeth will be discarded
Please guide me on this.
Thank you.

I would really need to see you to give you all the options available, veneers or bonding can re shape teeth and this can be done quite minimally depending on the position of the teeth. Braces will be least invasive method to straighten your teeth.
