Your tooth enamel chipped off, exposing dentin and inner layers of the tooth. This might have opened root nerves too and that is why you are having pain. Start taking tablet Brufen 400 mg twice a day for three days.
If the pain gets relieved by it, it means there is no deep infection and tooth may be restored by filling.

Stay happy and blessed. Take care.
