Overerupted opposing teeth: recommendations?

I have a 50 year old female patient whose LL6 and 7 have been missing for some years. She has requested implants to replace these missing teeth. UL6 has over-erupted to the extent that there is reduced inter-arch space and UL7 to the extent that there is virtually no space for restoring the implants. Enameloplasty of the opposing teeth may be sufficient to create enough space for the first molar but would have to be quite aggressive for the second molar. Appearance is not an issue. She is prepared to compromise and to just have the first molar restored. but I feel this would be a half measure. What do you recommend?
