What could you do if just the glass was broken on your camera lens but camera still worked?

if you only have the glass broken you *MIGHT* be able to just replace the glass cover but there is a huge risk of glass and dust contamination ruining the camera anyways. I personally had this happen after replacing the glass cover and now have black splotches all over even after I tried my damnest to control for dust.
