Good day

It looks like you have a filling on the affected tooth as well as a new cavity that requires a filling. Best to go to your dentist for a consult.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. They said the "new cavity" is a chipped tooth and that I need a crown, which honestly does not look like a chip to me. Looks like a big, round hole (cavity)

From the photo it looks like a new cavity yes. I don't know what the x-ray shows, but just know that a larger filling tends to be weaker and has a higher risk of fracture, since it is never as strong as normal tooth structure.
Make sure that the cavity can't be fixed with a normal filling first.
