Root canal treated tooth have less strength.. In long term, chances of tooth fracture is high ( it depends on the type of food you have and time lapsed since rct) That's why crown is recommended after RCT..

Teeth tend to move. It's better to get crown replaced. If filling comes out you may need to have rct again get a new crown fixed.
