I am so worried about this implant

It was placed next to my natural tooth but seems so close. I can barely fit my fingernail between them.
I wonder how will it be possible to place a crown on it? And wouldn't the implanting dentist see straight away that it's too close? The procedure was done three weeks ago.

I am attaching a photo. It shows the implant in my right side of the upper jaw. (The photo is not very good as it looks like there IS a small gap, which is not the case)

May I please get some information. Thank you

It is hard to give you a definitive answer but the healing cap is covering the implant leading you to think that it is so close to the adjacent tooth. The implant crown will be made by expert technicians who will accommodate the minimal space.

Pava, How much did the implant cost?

Your implant looks good. What you are seeing is the healing cap not the dental implant. Plus, a dental implant needs to be only 1.5 mm away from a natural tooth for it to succeed. If you are not having pain or feeling looseness, you are good my friend. Your dentist and lab technician will address the spacing and give you a beautiful crown once the implant has healed.
