Caps are not required in every case after root canal treatment and the best judge for this will be the operating dentist..... root canal treated teeth do not develop gaps in between in due course of time..... this happens due to weak gum and bone support of the teeth, which is independent of the root canal status of the tooth..... please get a proper clinical examination done so that your dentist can guide you with the best treatment options present in your case as of this moment.... Regards....

A crown is a must..  Metal free ceramics are a fantastic option especially Ultratransluscent crowns..  And for other gaps either light cure veneers or porcelain laminates are the best options.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre.  God bless u.

Hello ,it's not always necessary to give crowns for all root canal treated teeth....depends on the amount of tooth structure available...sometimes restoration too can do a pretty good job....if you have problem regarding gaps and discoloration of front teeth ...there can be many alternative treatments like bleaching followed by esthetic fillings or veneers or orthodontic correction...it needs a thorough evaluation and thus a definitive treatment plan suitable for your condition can be formulated by your dentist....kindly visit your dentist and discuss regarding various treatment options and let him choose the best for you....
