I Have 2 Permanent Crowns on Front Top Teeth, I Need a Permanent Retainer on the Top Teeth?

I have 2 permanent crowns on my front top 2 teeth, I need a strong permanent retainer to hold my top teeth together. I had a permanent retainer prior to having the crowns put on but it seems as if the wire I have on now is not strong enough. My left tooth is moving with the wire on. The wire is held on very tight it is not loose.
