No easy answer : This type of question is difficult to answer well online. The facial asymmetry may or may not be able to be resolved. An implant can certainly be a solution to restoring the area with the missing tooth, but there is no way to know what else will be needed or what costs will be incurred to solve this problem. I suggest a consultation with a dentist to get a more personalized solution.

Facial asymmetry?: I don't think you acquired facial asymmetry from a missing molar. You can restore the space with an implant in the range of $3000-$6000 per tooth.

Doubtful: Doubtful that failing to replace 1 missing tooth would result in facial asymmetry. Possible, however, that other teeth have tipped and drifted into the missing-tooth site. You may need tooth realignment before implant/crown can be placed. See your Dentist for evaluation and comprehensive treatment plan, including cost estimate.
