Invisilign with Crown?

Crowns AFTER any orthodontic treatment
There is a certain lack of precision with moving teeth, but great accuracy with crowns. It is generally better to move teeth first, then crown teeth to finish it all off. This allows us the ability to correct any look or fit that ortho may have lacked.
Invisalign Before Crown Replacement
Have the Invisalign treatment completed, then consider replacing your crown. Make sure to have your crown replaced prior to making your final retainers.
Invisalign before or after crown?
I usually always recommend doing the orthodontics first and then the crown good luck

Crown Before or After Invisalign
I would recommend getting the crown after Invisalign has been completed. It is easier for the dentist to do restorative work after your teeth have been straightened and sometimes when moving teeth, an old crown may become loose and have to be replaced anyway. Hope this helps!
Crown or invisalign first
If the crown is not too uncomfortable, then change do the invisalign first. Invisalign will change the anatomical relationships and theoretically you want your crown to fit the post treatment anatomical relationships.
