Desire for improved esthetics and the consequent need for cosmetic dentistry have increased tremendously in recent times making esthetic procedures an integral part of periodontal treatment. The treatment of choice for recession coverage should address the biological as well as the patient's esthetic demands. Zucchelli and Sanctis (2000) proposed a modification in the coronally advanced flap technique for treatment of multiple recession defects in esthetic areas. A recent innovation in dentistry is the preparation and use of platelet-rich fibrin for recession defects. This case report highlights the Zucchelli's technique along with the use of PRF for root coverage in multiple recession defects.
