Are you feeling sensitivity - cold or hot? Please visit a dentist to get diagnosed the extent of fracture. Treatment plan would depend on that. If it's not deep, a tooth coloured restoration can be done or else root canal may be required.

The discomfort that you are suffering is that kind of pain or just sensitivity? If it is pain then you need to undergo root canal so visit your nearest dentist ASAP
