What are your thoughts about this crowns? I will put them only in upper teeth, will they wear out my lower natural teeth enamel?

Good day
Modern Zirconia crowns have a good combination of strength and aesthetics and can be a good choice for anterior teeth. Usually when the crowns are designed, they are designed in such a way to prevent them from " biting" too hard on the opposing teeth. Your bite is also checked by your dentist, once the final crowns are cemented.
Over time, there can be some wear on the opposing dentition, depending on the condition of the opposing teeth as well as the movement of your jaw and teeth during function.
