1. A composite has a finite "lasting power" and eventually it too may chip away so you will need to replace it or fix it, and
2. A composite restoration will stain over time depending on the foods or drinks you consume.

It depends how badly you chipped your tooth. If it is a small chip, it would be a simple fix. If you chipped a large part of the tooth, unfortunately, you need to get a crown. You should consult your dentist and discuss the options.
