This link explains general reasons why crowns are placed (as opposed to fillings).
And this link provides additional information about the pros and cons of fillings vs. dental crowns.

But it's really only your dentist, after having examined your teeth, who has all of the information needed to help you decide between the two.

Then once your teeth have been rebuilt (and replaced in your case), you'll need to take steps to prevent future wear from occurring. It's very common for a dentist to have their patient wear a "night guard" appliance to help to prevent wear while they sleep. During the day you'll need to make a conscious effort not to grind your teeth so no more damage occurs.
