Abstract

Background: The increasing interest in esthetics and the subsequent need to solve related problems such as hypersensitivity and root caries have favored the development of many surgical procedures that permit the coverage of exposed roots. This clinical study was conducted to examine the coverage of gingival recession defects, where two different subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) techniques (Langer and Langer and modified tunnel) were used.
