Worn down front teeth

At age 62 and under a dentist's care my front bottom teeth have exhibited a considerable amount of wear. My teeth are very small too which adds to the problem of crowning them. I have been to two other dentists who tell me that ALL of my bottom teeth need to be crowned, price, $19,000, which does make sense to me since 3 already have crowns, but for some untold reason they can't be used.???
I can clearly see the exposed dentin. It's been like this for years, but I never knew what it was. If I had I would have used a guard which my dentist never mentioned. He went to Emory, I thought a dentist took an oath to help patients take care of their teeth! Guess money is more important.
Anyway now I feel like I between a rock and a hard place. Do I just have them pulled? Try crowns by trimming away gum tissue? Or implants? Or just go with dentures, which is my last resort. I just can't see putting that much money into my teeth at this age.
I have taken Dilantin for espilesy since I was 3 years old, so I imagine that has not helped my teeth (dry mouth.
Any suggests would be greatly appreciated.
