Gingival recession defect in the dentition are routinely encountered in periodontal practice and presents a challenge for a periodontist. Mucogingival surgical procedures aim to restore both gingival function and aesthetics. Recently as the population is getting to be more concerned about aesthetics the aesthetical indications are more relevant. In the presented case a coronally advanced flap prepared by single tunnel technique and combined with subepithelial connective tissue graft and enamel matrix derivatives (EMD) has been employed for root coverage in a Miller's class I recession. The combined technique used resulted in approximately 100% root coverage in the treated site after 6 months. Treatment outcomes met the patient's aesthetic demands and also eliminated her root sensitivity.
