answer 1

If you are happy with your smile then there is no reason to replace your new crowns. Remember that it will be you living with these for the next ten to fifteen years, not your dentist. I am sure your dentist will be happy to replace them if that is what you want.

Regarding tooth whitening, you should not be experiencing extreme discomfort and bleeding gums. You are either using the whitening materials incorrectly, or suffering from gum infection. I'm sure your dentist can advise you how to proceed with this.

You need to be happy and if the result is not as you agreed then speak to your dentist!

With hindsight you should have been able to discuss things with the dentist prior to fitting the A2 crowns and possibly have them fitted with a temporary cement to decide if you could live with them. You are right that your lower teeth will darken to match the uppers, but I am concerned that you had gum bleeding during bleaching as this might be a sign that your gums were not 100% healthy prior to the cosmetic procedures. The main question is will you be satisfied with A2 teeth in the long term? Many of my patients would be delighted to have teeth that are as bright as A2 but others would settle for nothing less than a shade so white that makes A1 look like mahogany! Of course this incredibly fake over whitening is not natural but beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I would suggest discussing things with your dentist, explaining that you had wished the teeth to be A1 (as agreed) and then decide if you can face having the treatment redone.
