Tooth which pain might need RCT and a Crown over it. Some might require just a filling. And those severely decayed and damaged might require removal. An X ray is a must to come to some conclusion. Cost will depend according to different treatments done on teeth. Hope this helps!..
Kindly consult a physician for covid opinion & treatment. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meal. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.
Neither covid has any role in cavity formation nor cavity can form in 2 days. Its a gradual process. When caries start no body notices it early as its while in colour. When it becomes brown or black then also its ignored most of the times. Tooth has 2 hard layers. Enamel and Dentin. Dentin being inner layer is also softer than outer layer the enamel. So When caries start in enamel its too small easily ignored. But when the decay reaches Dentin it spreads faster and makes the tooth hollow from inside leaving very thin part of enamel over it which fractures easily and a large cavity comes to notice of the person. It feels like cavity formed in a day or two but the process starts years earlier which has become prominent today. But then also no need to worry. If it doesn't pain, it can be filled and progression of decay can be arrested. Hope this helps

If you want to save your tooth then only solution is rct it is painless only time you might have pain is just few seconds before injection but for that your dentist will put spray or gel to numb that area so that you will not feel needle.
The whole procedure of rct should be under anesthesia and you must not have pain at any moment.
1. Numb the area
2. Open the tooth and take out the infected nerve
3.clean the whole canal (like cleaning a blocked pipe)
4. Then when you ll have no pain, you are eating properly, doc will fill the root and tooth.
After step 4 your tooth will be as new as before.
Doc and you decide that you want to go for cap or not.
