In the current practice of periodontics, clinicians are faced with the challenge of not only addressing biological and functional problems present in the periodontium, but also providing therapy that results in acceptable aesthetics. The presence of mucogingival problems and gingival recession around anterior, highly visible teeth exemplifies a situation in which a treatment modality that addresses both biological and aesthetic demands is required from the therapist. Periodontal plastic surgery procedures are performed to resolve these mucogingival problems. This paper presents two cases of gingival recession (Miller's class I and class II) successfully treated with complete root coverage by free gingival autografts.
