Recent reports in the literature show that the application of coronally advanced flap i n c ombination with subepithelial connective tissue graft in the treatment of Miller Class II and even III gingival recessions leads to successful results. This case report describes the use of subepithelial connective tissue graft and enamel matrix derivative combination with coronally advanced flap for the treatment of localized gingival recession caused by an ill-fitting crown restoration. The restorative treatment comprised of the retreatment of the endodontic and restorative needs. At 12 months, successful root coverage with 3.5 mm attachment gain was achieved. The patient had minimal discomfort and was satisfied with esthetic results. This case encourages the usage of subepithelial connective tissue graft, enamel matrix derivative and coronally advanced flap combination in localized Miller Class III gingival recessions. Even though the treatment of Miller Class III gingival recessions are challenging due to loss of interproximal bone and soft tissues, the application of subepithelial connective tissue graft in combination with the use ofenamel matrix derivative has shown to be a predictable treatment procedure in esthetic areas forroot coverage and gain of clinical attachment in single Miller Class III recession defects.
