Braces and crowns: Absolutely you can. If you get braces the doctor treating you may need to use special glue to the brace to adhere to the crown. With invisalign nothing special will need to be added.

Yes: It is possible, but your dentist or orthodontist may have to be reminded of the crowned tooth.

Yes: a crowned tooth creates some technical problems, but they can be overcome. Please note: 1) Braces are the gold standard, more than twice as effective as clear aligners, & 2) Orthodontists do Rx in less time and get better results than GPs, so see a specialist.
