Esthetic concerns are usually the reason to perform perio-plastic procedures. The main goal of periodontal regenerative and reconstructive therapy is the restoration of health, function, and esthetics, which often requires correction of gingival recession defects within the esthetic zone. The coverage of denuded roots presents one of the challenges of periodontal treatment. Presently there are numerous of periodontal plastic procedures available to manage such problem. Bridge flap technique is one such surgical procedure, which provides root coverage at one stage. To improve the clinical outcome of such surgical procedures, several regenerative materials have been combined with it. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is one of the best regenerative materials and is being used now-a-days along with the periodontal plastic surgical procedures. The following case presents a cost-effective single-step technique to correct multiple gingival recession at the same time with bridge flap technique combined with PRF. The additive advantage of PRF, having a regenerative potential provided predictable root coverage with improved esthetic results.
