Do you have pain in the tooth in which you have noticed caries? if there is no pain then filling can be done after caries removal but if you ever had or have pain then you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap.

Rct is only need when cavity extend to or very near to tooth pulp. So if you can share your x-ray with me than only I can tell that you require rct or normal filling will work. As a general rule if you have pain in that particular tooth than you require a rct.
