Implant thread exposed in lower lateral incisor: options?

Last Updated July 18, 2017

I have a 30 year old female patient who presents with an implant in the mandibular lateral incisor site with 2 threads exposed on the labial side. Her main concern is aesthetics. The implant was placed 4 years ago at another office. I would like to avoid explanting the implant, if possible. What else can I do to cover the threads recreate an aesthetic gingival architecture?
