Which ceramic material for dental crowns?

Definitely Emax for what you see in the smile (most esthetic), Zirconia for the molars (much stronger, less esthetic).  It does depend on the bite, but generally this is the best scenario.

What type of porcelain to choose

If you have a heavy bite, Emax if not Empress. Zirconium is not that aesthetically pleasing.

Ceramic Choice for Anterior Teeth

You will get a much more esthetically pleasing result with Empress or E-Max. While Zirconia is the strongest, it's best for back teeth where esthetics is not as important as strength.
