It is the most commonly performed procedure by dentists,it simple and pain less, so dont worry go ahead, Regarding cap it protects Rct treated tooth, which is required after 2 to 6 weeks of Rct.

RCT is the only solution to save your tooth if it is decayed and pulpally involved/ painful. It is important to cap this tooth as it turns brittle in 3- 6 months and can fracture under stress.
