It looks like the skin of my gum is forming over two of my implants. Do I need to seek medical help?

My procedure yesterday was having the implants uncovered and looks like little caps on them until my new teeth are ready! 4 of the implants look fine , however I can just about see two of them which looks like the skin of my gum is forming over them?

Hi:

What you are describing could be part of the normal healing process.  However, it is best to have your dentist check the tissue to make sure all is ok.

Best,
