Gingival recession after change from temporary to real abutment?

Last Updated September 19, 2016

I have a patient where there was considerable gingival recession in the maxillary anterior aesthetic zone. I had previously placed a temporary abutment and temporary acrylic crown and the gingiva was stable. But shortly after I placed the permanent abutment and permanent ceramic crown, the gingiva receded to where it is in the photographs. What can I do to reverse the gingival recession and return the gingiva to its prior state where it was comparable to the adjacent teeth? I need to make this correction within one month due to my schedule. Thanks for any comments.
