In brief: Recommended

However, if the fractured is deep and the damage extends to the nerve chamber, root canal treatment and crown is another option.

In brief: Yes

A cracked tooth will eventually crack further into the pulp, where the nerve is and then you not only will have pain but the added expense of needing root canal therapy.
A crown is best to strengthen a cracked tooth, assuming it is restorable. See your dentist for a full evaluation.
