Crowns on top
Under no circumstances should you put crowns on your teeth! You have 2 issues: your open bite and the cosmetic aspect of your teeth. The bite cannot and should not be corrected with crowns, and the canines and laterals can easily be corrected with bonding to reshape them. The bite would need the help of an orthodontist as well as possibly an oral surgeon.
It is a terrible idea!

Will 6 crowns fix open bite and pointy canines? #DrSoftTouch
You have two options: the first would include orthodontics to move your teeth into a more ideal position and correct your open bite. After completing orthodontic treatment, I would recommend veneering your lateral incisors and reshaping your canines. The other option, with would only take two appointments, would require crowning your teeth to correct your open bite and make your smile more symmetrical. It's important to weigh the pros and cons of each option and determine which is best for you. I hope this helps.
