As mentioned by you, it seems you have a fracture of tooth involving pulp... Please visit a dentist and get a radiograph after which it can be assesed if you have only crown fracture or a root fracture as well. In case of a crown fracture a routine root canal can be done followed by a crown placement if required.

Dentist Dr. Benley George's  Response
First of all you have not mentioned your age.An xray of the tooth should be done to determine if there is any root fracture. A root fracture results in poor success. If there is no root fracture the tooth can be root canal treated and then a cap should be placed over the tooth and thus your smile will be restored to normal.

u can as well throw away ur broken tooth piece as it is of no use now as u said ur tooth is half broken assuming as pulpal involvement u may require an root canal procedure with crown after wards..not to worry they both r routine procedures although u need to get an x ray first as suggested by ur dentist
