If your front tooth does not have any decay or filling a small filling is placed on the back of your tooth to seal the access. If there is decay or previous fillings present, a ceramic crown, which will match the shade of your other teeth is recommended to prevent your tooth from further damage. In some cases where there has been deterioration to the enamel and coronal portion of your tooth the part (the visible portion of the tooth, a fiber post may be also placed in the root canal after the sealer has been placed to provide additional retention for your crown. (A fiber post is a tooth colored fiber resin material that gives additional support inside your tooth.)

The procedure for the front teeth is similar to the back teeth, even earlier, because of easy access and visibility and only a single canal. Compared to the back with multiple canals, front teeth should be easier and less time required. However, it depends on the condition of the tooth itself (e.g., the severity of infection, etc.), so only your dentist has the best knowledge of the difficulty level for the treatment.
