Would I still be able to receive a crown?

Crown may be possible #DrSoftTouch
If the tooth is stable but the bonding is loose, then replacing the bonding with a crown as recommended would not pose a problem. However, if the tooth is loose, I would recommend discussing more long term options, such as a dental implant or bridge, with your dentist. I hope this helps. Follow me for more questions and answers.
Peg Lateral Incisor
This is difficult to advise you without x-rays. If the tooth is loose the odds are that it could be time for a dental implant. I would recommend seeing a board certified periodontist to get your options for this tooth.
Crown on peg tooth
If the peg lateral tooth is stable but the bonding simple loosened then redoing the bonding or a veneer/crown would be a reasonable restoration. However, if the tooth is loose, you may want to discus other long term options. A lot of the time a peg lateral can have the skinny and/or shortened root which does not hold up well long term. Investing in a crown/veneer for a tooth that is on the decline may not be the best treatment option.
