Broad and Inclined Front Teeth
Extracting all your front teeth and replacing with implants is a very drastic solution. I do NOT recommend it. First look into orthodontic movement of the teeth prior to capping them.
Don't like new crowns
Sounds like the dentist did the best he/she could given the position of the teeth. Some minor orthodontics prior to the crowns could have achieved your goals. It may be possible to do some orthodontics upper and lower with the existing crowns but that could be risky requiring replacement of the crowns. The most important issue is to always clarify all the goals for patient and doctor prior to any esthetic procedure. Good luck.
