In brief: Yes

Crowns will not interfere with braces.
Your dentist should know what is best for you.

In brief: Yes

There may be a need to adjust the crowns as the teeth are moved, and new crowns may be needed on some depending on the desired position of the teeth.
Often we will remove the existing crown and place a long term temporary crown which can be bonded to and adjusted along the way. Good Luck.

In brief: For sure

Adults with braces, bridges, implants, and partial dentures (sorry, not full-dentures) have been successfully treated with braces by orthodontic specialists.
Braces will not typically harm your crowns and the crowns will not typically limit orthodontic tooth movement.

In brief: Braces

Absolutely. These days we have glues that can stick to all types of crowns not to mention invisalign is another option.
