Could you please detail the steps after the second healing abutment ? I see you removed the abutment and in the photo name “final impression for the zirconia crown” we see the tissue morphology is different than when the healing abutment was removed. How did the tissue heal in such an anatomic shape ?
Could you take the slim healing abut easily without any incision? Also, what about the excessive pressure and blanching when you put the regular healing screw?  For my limited experience, even though it came lose followed by unscrewing completed, it came out only after some incisions with a microblade. I believe thick and firm connective tissue around the neck does contribute this phenomenon.  Please share your experience on it. Thanks for the fantastic case presentation.

Due to the loss of buccal bony volume, was the implant placed more lingual than ideal? Was guided surgery utilized?
