Gingival recession can lead to a variety of functional and esthetic problems. The problems associated with the gingival recession include unacceptable esthetics, hypersensitivity, root caries, and difficult plaque control. Gingival recession is a common clinical condition not only in populations with poor standards of oral hygiene but also in people maintaining good oral hygiene. In an esthetically driven era, the success of root coverage requires consideration of each one of the prognostic criteria. Various procedures have been popularized to treat the gingival recession. Zucchelli's technique is a modification of the coronally advanced flap for the treatment of teeth having multiple recessions. The upper hand of this procedure includes the absence of vertical releasing incisions, an appropriate thickness, combining sites of split and full thickness, and the coronal advancement of the flap. This case report presents the treatment of multiple adjacent gingival recessions using Zucchelli's coronally advanced flap.
