If the crown is not damaged then the same cap can be placed, but if it's damaged then you have to replace it , you can ask the doctor if it's under warranty period or not.

Hi, The gap of 1 year is a long gap so it is difficult for the cap to fit.But to protect the root canal treated tooth from breaking if the same cap does not fit put a new cap.
