Thoughts on position and restoring this zirconia implant?

This case presented to me for a restoration of upper left central incisor. Zirconia one-piece implant placed by another dentist and temporized prior. These photos and x-rays are 4 months post operatively. Do you note the gingival inflammation on facial of #9? What do you think of implant position so palatally (the implant is directly inside that lingual buldge of the temporary)? The occlusion is very tight on this case, lowers are hitting directly into the implant. Implant appears to be stable and not mobile but appears to have lost a few threads of bone coverage. Do you think the implant should have been positioned with better angulation? Sorry I don't have cone beam but do you think there is lack of facial bone support based on the periapical radiograph and clinical inflammation?
