If there is no significant pain or bleeding, this will not be considered an Emergency, but you can try to call your dentist and have an opinion. May be he wants to see the patient semi-urgently (in a day or two).
If you do not have a dentist, please call 111 (NHS helpline) and they will advice you what to do next (they may find a dentist near you or arrange an appointment).
For mild pain, you can give paracetamol at home, do not use ibuprofen as it can make bleeding worse.

Same is true for broken dentures, it is considered non-urgent dental condition as per NHS policy.
Good luck and my sincere wishes for your good health.
