If I chipped my front left tooth, the corner inner most closest to the front right tooth in a size approximately 1/8 of an inch is there a way a dentist can fix the chipped tooth without requiring Lumineers or costing me an arm or a leg in charges I’d have to pay for the repair. I fell on the ice & went face 1st. Can you please recommend a solution on what procedure may be best for a chipped front left tooth? Possibly one that doesn’t cost more than my budget can afford.

A chip that size should be a simple direct bonding repair. You shouldn’t need Lumineers.
You do have to be careful where you go, though. There are some dentists who advertise themselves as cosmetic dentists who would either a) try to “upgrade” you to porcelain veneers for this simple case or b) wouldn’t have the necessary artistic skills to do direct bonding, which has to be done freehand by the dentist.
