Hi ,It is always necessary to put cap on root canal treated tooth as if cap is not put chances of tooth breakage increases. The cost varies according to material for cap (Ceramic ,Zirconia,metal etc) .
It is always advisable to get capping done after having RCT. As it will prolong the life of tooth as well as treatment.
Get tooth colored caps if tooth is visible. Otherwise you can opt for metal cap also.
