In brief: What was the cause?

How long ago was the filling placed? Did your dentist advise you of some precautions to follow that you did not heed? Did your dentist suggest a guarded prognosis for the durability or life of the filling.
You need to discuss this issue with your dentist. The breaking of the filling might not have been preventable. Sometimes a dentist will replace a recent filling at a reduced fee or for free.

In brief: Sometimes

If a filling on a front tooth has limited surface area to bond to they are often prone to chipping.
If a filling has a history of chipping a alot of times the best answer is to do a porcelain veneer. If a broken filling is less than a year old and it was done in our clinic we would offer to do this again at no charge or deduct the cost of the filling off the cost of a veneer.

In brief: Good luck

There are very few dentist that will replace (fix) a chipped filling for free.
Unless, you are a patient of the clinic that did the filling and the filling was recently done.
