Impacted canine extraction: 2 vs 3 implants?

This is an update to the case that I posted a 6 months ago. I ended up removing the impacted #11 [maxillary left canine; 23], doing a block graft for # 7 [maxillary right lateral incisor;12], sinus lift and simultaneous GBR for horizontal augmentation for maxillary left quadrant with 100% Puros bone. Patient had no swelling whatsoever thanks to Dr. Hom-Lay Wang who taught me to work with finesse. My dilemma is that my patient wanted to get a fixed bridge on 2 implants to save money. Now, I wonder if I should go back and place a third implant?
