My tooth broke in half....

My top molar (the smaller one near the front of my mouth), broke in half today. I had a big filling down the middle of this tooth and then today the inside side of the tooth broke off. It hurts when I drink something cold or eat something sweet. I am going to get a consultation with a dentist tommorow. What do you think is going to happen? Do you think I will need a root canal and then a crown? Will I need a crown no matter what? Do dentists ever just make a filling that is 90% of the tooth?
UGH. I can't believe I have to deal with this....

It depends on the state of the tooth if they need to crown it you have to have a root treatment if she can still build it up with fillings and there is no infection then that is what they will do

Well, it looks like I need a root canal.....not only on that tooth...but basically every tooth in my head. I am in deep depression over this. My teeth are so rotten that not much can be done to save them...
