Treatment of gingival recession around teeth or soft tissue dehiscence around implant has become an important therapeutic issue due to the increasing number of cosmetic request from patients. Patients aesthetic demand, due to the exposure, during smiling or function, of portions of the root surface, appearance of the metallic structure or even their transparency through the thin buccal soft tissues of the implant components are the main indications for mucogingival procedures. New knowledge in soft tissue surgical management permits to achieve esthetic coverage in gingival recession with minimally invasive connective tissue grafts. Bilaminar techniques, in particular, can be successfully used in combination with a pre and postsurgical prosthetic approaches to increase the volume of the interdental soft tissue, to treat buccal gingival recessions and soft tissue dehiscence around dental implants.
