Since you no symptoms of pain, visit another dentist for a second opnion. It would be difficult to comment or even suggest a particular treatment without seeing the tooth or a relevant x-ray in your case.

Hi you may need a root canal if the crack is involving the pulp of your teeth ..which can be made out by an x-ray and an examination..and whether you are having any symptoms or discoloration of that tooth is starting to show..

Yes you may need an rct in case of pulpal involvement cracked tooth will usually have a chronic lesion which must be treated before crowning or any other cosmetic treatment but only a clinical examination can assure whether you need one or not
