I Had A Tooth Extracted And There’s A Large Gap At The Back Of My Mouth Now, What Are My Options For Replacing It?

I would like some information if possible please.

I’ve had extraction on my right second from back tooth. Its left quite a big gap that I know is there and that i want to close up as soon as i can I don’t like the fact that I have a gap and want to get it filled asap.

Any advice please reply. I have been told that i can have a implant but i wanted to see what the other options are.

I’ve had these things called Lumineers or Veneers?

I would like to know how intensive these options are and the best option for myself.


HI and thanks for the question. Veneers or Lumineers are placed on the front surfaces of teeth to make them look more attractive, so if you do not have a tooth present they cannot be used to replace it.

Implants could be the best option for you but there are others that you should discuss with your dentist to see what might be the best choice for you. These options include various types of bridgework and dentures.

You will find out all the options and costs, risks etc when you have a thorough examination and consultation.

Kind regards
