You must move it orthodontically. If you merely cut it more than small amount, it will be very sensitive.

Dear Mr Kim thank you for the advise. I was thinking of not removing it as it can still be used. By the way how much it cost and can any dentist do the orthodontic ?

I don't know where you live and don't have any idea what kind of movements will be needed to align your teeth. In the US, orthodontic treatment in adults will range in price from $500-$5000 depending on the complexity. By the way, aligners like Invisalign cannot be used for cases like yours where depessing teeth in the socket is necessary.

We are doing a case in a 65 year old genteleman now where brackets are being used to depress (intrude) a single lower incisor that has been out of line the patient's entire life.
