Metal showing after implant treatment and dark gingiva #7: advice?

Last Updated May 22, 2019

This case is of a lovely young mother who happens to be my dental assistant. Prior to coming into my employ, she had a Strauman 3.3 x 12 implant placed by a local periodontist and restored by a local general dentist. She is concerned and bothered by the metal which started showing not long after treatment and as you can see, not only does the metal show, but she has a delicate biotype so there is darkness above. Any ideas on how to treat this? Bone and gingival graft? Advice would be greatly appreciated.
