Firstly you clearlly indicate, what type of difficulty that you are facing like, unable to chew, pain/sensitivity while chewing, sensitivity to hot &cold.
There are different treatment options for different type of symptoms, after all replacing your missing tooth is also mandatory thing, you can go with fixed (implant/bridge) or remevable (acrylic tooth) options for that.
