You must seek care from a dentist.  Your issues cannot be treated at home, must be professionally done at a dentists office.

The picture is fuzzy, but there appears to be a developmental defect in that tooth, perhaps caused by a high fever or injury when that tooth was developing years ago. There really is no home treatment for it. A dentist can cosmetically improve it.
