Hello dear
Normally if childhood injury occurs in relation to front teeth then after becoming teenager there appears gap between teeth so if we get a replace,ent it will be bigger in size, thismis the problem you are facing, and second the thickness of teeth made up of metal and ceramic is more.So if you want a perfect look either go for zirconia crowns or you can switch to implants. These two can satisfy your beauty lack .

I feel you should consult a Prosthodontist regarding your smile designing. Size plays a important factor in a patients smile. Your dentist can determine the length which would suit your face. An all ceramic crown would be ideal for your front teeth. Consult a Prosthodontist at the earliest.

Hello and welcome to hcm forum,
Since your teeth has broken ,you can go for placement of full ceramic crowns.
Also the position of tooth previously as well as the occlusion of teeth has to be evaluated.
If you have got protruded maxilla with skeletal overgrowth,to get exact correction,orthognathic surgegry has to be done initially.
If not,directly get the crown placed.
Accurate impression of the broken tooth will help to place the crown properly.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
Exact shade and size of crown is very important regarding the easthetic appearance.
Take care.
