If any of your buttons stop working you can enable the AssistiveTouch option in Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch. This places a software button on your iPhone screen, a button which you can drag to anywhere on the screen. When you press this button you get a menu that lets you access different functions of the iPhone: Siri, Favourites, Home (button) and Device. To lock your screen, tap Device and choose Lock Screen.
The only way to turn off the iPhone when your power button is broken and unresponsive is to enable AssistiveTouch, tap the on-screen button that shows up, then tap Device and tap and hold Lock Screen button for about 5 seconds. This will bring the "slide to power off" menu.
