What's the best of three unappealing options?

I will be having a root canal soon, but the dentist has told me that the damage to the tooth may not be treatable by the root canal, and that other action may be necessary. He's given me a few options to consider, and has asked me to pick one.

The options I've been offered are crown lengthening
, or extraction + denture. From a perspective of simplicity and cost, I'm leaning toward the denture option, but I'm concerned that I will come to regret it. I know only that the other two options are considerably more invasive and expensive. If you've been through any of these, what is your experience? What do you recommend I do?
