Should I get fillings or crowns because of where the erosion is? (Photo)

I think that my mouth guard is causing my gums to recede on my front teeth. Though not sure. Should I try fillings or crowns? My front teeth are also noticeably ground down. Would a crown fix that and should I?

I think you are a perfect candidate to a filling, but you need to find the problem for the filling don't came out easy. Maybe you brush your teeth very hard  or the mouth guard. If you continue with that the filing can come out and will be necessary crowns for your teeth.
