Depending upon your aesthetic demands, with bleaching, a lot less.  In other words, bleach your natural teeth to the colour you like and then have your crowns made. 


Natural teeth get darker and darker as we get older.  The other alternative, for aesthetic reasons, is to have all your teeth veneered or crowned.  This will give you an even colour for much longer. 


The downside is if any one of these teeth breaks, and you have changed your lab or dentist, it is hard to match these crowns without the right material and colour prescription.  With the latest technology, this problem can be easily overcome using colour measurement guns and digital photography.


If you are not concerned about the look, you need to think about the potential of decay.  Quite often it is very difficult for an X-ray machine to see under your crown.  Maybe, a routine replacement at whatever cost would be the answer.  The other side to the argument is that the more you disturb your natural root stump, the more vulnerable it is to infection.
