Gingival recession is a common manifestation in most populations. Gingival recession is clinically manifested by an apical displacement of the gingival tissues, leading to root surface exposure. Gingival recession may be a concern for patients for a number of reasons such as root hypersensitivity, erosion, root caries, and esthetics (Wennstrom 1996). Recently, new techniques have been suggested for the surgical treatment of multiple adjacent recession type defects. These are mainly derived from the coronally advanced flap, a supraperiosteal envelope technique in combination with a subepithelial connective tissue graft, or its evolution as a tunnel technique. The current case reports introduce a novel, minimally invasive approach applicable for both isolated recession defects as well as multiple contiguous defects in the maxillary anterior region. Access to the surgical site is obtained by means of an approach referred to as vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel access.
