It most likely unrestorable

Sorry to hear about your situation.  Your situation is quite common.  People tend to delay treatment until it is too late.  In your case, it might be too late.  You can probably try to save it by doing a root canal, post and core, and crown.  However, the prognosis might be poor at best due to the amount of tooth loss.  I would suggest that you go see a dentist ASAP.  He/she might not be able to save that tooth but might be able to save your other teeth.  Your central and lateral teeth (front teeth) does not look too healthy either.
