Looking at the photo it appears the nerve has been exposed and you will most likely need a root canal build up and crown. Cost for root canal 600-1500, build up 185-600, and crown all porcelain 900-1750.00. Can be done in one visit with the right office. In the meantime drugstore has temp filling material you can place over the broken tooth. Good luck

Thanks for providing us a photo.  From the looks of it you have a serious problem and it appears that there is nerve involvement.  You need to get to a dentist ASAP.  Good luck
