Default Can I still carbonate a still cider?

I have a cider that has been sitting with a airlock for a little while. It tastes amazing, but I would like to carbonate it as it seems its missing some carbonization when I drink it. Would I have to add yeast again along with sugar to carbonate it? I have beer bottles and caps but have not really messed with carbonization much before. Thanks!

How long has it been aging? Is it still on the yeast bed?

I think it should be fine unless you've let it sit for a year or more.
