u have two options. op1 is re root canal treatment with internal bleaching or , op2 - porcelain crown or veneer.
for best result go for porcelain crown.
Provided the tooth has no decay, Internal Bleaching may be an option. This is where a strong bleaching agent is placed in the canal where the root canal was done and left there for a week, the process may be repeated and then a light filling is placed in the access hole in the back. Ocassionally this is done in conjunction with home whitening.
