Deviated fang due to dog attack

Hello guys good day!

Today I am reaching you for some help, it turns out that yesterday I was walking with my dog, (I had him on a leash and with a muzzle) unfortunately I did not manage to notice two stray dogs that attacked us when we crossed our path, and thank God It wasn't serious, but then I realized what had happened to my dog (see photos), we don't know if it was due to the clash of the jaws, some bite, or if perhaps in his attempt to defend himself he made himself this damage with the muzzle, as you can see the fang was deviated, I already took it to the vet and he told me that for now we have to see how it evolves with the analgesics since the fang has not completely detached (he has given us five days to see the evolution). However, I want to know if you, in your experience, know if this will look normal again? How long can it take? Or will it remain like this forever with that ball in the snout? Is there anything I can do other than give him pain relievers and antibiotics?

I know it may sound vain, but for me he is the most beautiful thing I have in my life and it has hurt me a lot to see his face like this, if there is something I can do to make him look like he is and not lose his fang, I will do everything necessary.

This is how his snout has turned out, as you can see, it looks like a ball:

Compared to the healthy one.

I just want him to have his beautiful face and healthy teeth like before.

Thank you for your answers and sorry for my bad English.
