Clearly this is an issue for your dentist to decide but in general terms:

Dental composite products (white filling materials) are manufactured using different formulations. Some of these are made specifically for applications, like restorations for back teeth, where compressive strength and wear resistance are needed.

So at least at the surface of your crown's opening, they will probably choose a "posterior" dental composite.

What they do inside the tooth is important too. If the filling isn't just all one piece, they'll need to make sure that any base materials underneath the restoration (filling in between the filling and actual tooth structure) have good compressive strength characteristics too, so it is adequately supported.
