Hello,

Is there a chance the gum tissue covering up the bone graft is still a bit swollen from the surgery? It does take a while for the gums to heal. I’d ask your dentist why your smile has changed and if you can expect it to settle down at all. If healing is complete and you are still unhappy with your appearance, find out what can be done to correct it before you have your dental implants.
