Tissue Contour: Have Some Patience

There are many factors that dictate the peri implant tissue contours and papilla fill. These include: bone levels, distance to the contact point, adequate tissue thickness, and a properly designed/contoured restoration. As long as these factors are present, we can be confident that the tissue will fill in the blanks. In this case, at the time of provisional crown placement, the soft tissue contours were lacking. But with a little bit of patience over the course of 8 weeks, we can observe how the tissue adapted itself around the restoration for a satisfactory result.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions by visiting the forum (link below).
