What material will be used to fill top lip where gum is missing?

Q. Hi. I,ve just had 5 implants in my upper jaw 3 days ago..ouch!! before that I was wearing a denture for 4 years due to gum deciese, which meant i had a lot off bone loss and shrunken gums, my dentist said i ad enough bone though…. and will be ready for the bridge in 2 months, My concirn is the lack of gum i have under my top lip and what material will be used to fill it out?,
A. It might be filled out with pink porcelain but often the contour of the teeth will create support for the lip
