Hi there, Broken teeth unfortunately happen more than you'd think! This should be a fairly straighforward repair. I would recommend seeing a dentist that is experienced with cosmetic work so that the result makes your tooth look like it was never damaged to begin with. If you are young, composite bonding if done the right way can be an excellent conservative yet truly beautiful option to repair the break. 
Best of luck!

I'm sorry to hear that you got in a bike accident. When you return from your vacation, please visit your dentist. The degree of fracture that I can see on your front tooth looks ideal for a tooth colored restoration. There is a possibility that if the nerve on the tooth was damaged by the accident, then the tooth might require a root canal. Your dentist should be able to determine if the tooth is going to need a root canal or not. Your teeth appear to be crowded in the top. It would be advisable for you to consider orthodontics (braces). Discuss it with your dentist. Good luck!

Never fear. Your front tooth is a relatively easy fix. It can be repaired with anything from bonding to a crown. No orthodontics necessary. Good luck.
