Abstract: Gingival recession (GR) presents a major concern for patients, especially when associated with tooth sensitivity or esthetic concerns. This report describes the complete coverage of a Class III GR with the combination of a free subepithelial connective tissue graft and a laterally positioned flap. After treatment for GR of the mandibular right canine with 12 mm of clinical attachment loss, there was complete coverage and an increase in keratinized gingiva. A promising technique is presented that yielded 100% defect coverage and gingival tissue enhancement.
