Hello, as far as the information provided by you, your post endo restoration (filling inside the cap) must have fractured, I will need more information to help you regarding the same.
Next Steps
Avoid chewing from that area

Since the crown was not there so the post endo restoration might have fractured. You can visit my clinic for treatment.

Leaving a root canal treated tooth without a protective cap or crown for an extended period, such as two years, can potentially lead to: Weakening of the tooth: A tooth that has undergone root canal treatment is more susceptible to fracture because the removal of the dental pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) can make it more brittle over time. Without a protective cap, the tooth may be at greater risk of breaking, especially if subjected to chewing forces. Therefore please attach a photo or consult a dentist for best outcome.
