You can extract the tooth and put in a "flipper" which is dental languarge for a partial denture.  It is used as a temporary fix for a bridge, but if money is a problem and you have no insurance, I would suggest you get a reinforced flipper. It can be reinforced with wire and will last a long time.  Some people just continue to wear them until they wear out and have another one made. Hope this helps you.

Least expensive is a filling if the tooth can be saved if not consider extraction and upper partial denture good luck
