Without photos or radiographs I would be only guessing. Options extract and place implant or fixed partial denture or removable partial denture or root canl build up and crown good luck

It could be as simple as composite bonding to repair the tooth. If the pulp (nerve and blood vessels) is exposed you'll need root canal treatment and a crown. If the tooth isn't restorable, you'll need an extraction and an implant placed. The only way to know is to see a dentist  for an exam and x-ray.
