Placing dental crowns would be the usual solution.
The sensitivity you notice is no doubt in part due to the fact that you have worn through the protective enamel covering of the teeth (the dentin layer underneath frequently does display sensitivity).
Also, as your teeth have worn down the nerve inside them is now less protected (less tooth thickness surrounds it), thus you notice increased sensitivity.
Crowns solve both of these problems because they cup over and encase the tooth on which they are placed.
We'd suggest you read through this page, and the pages it links to, to get a better idea of how crowns can be used to resolve cases such as yours. Best of luck.
