Marginal gingival recession is a typical source of worry, especially when it occurs in the anterior teeth as a result of functional and esthetic issues. Recession can cause esthetic degeneration, dentin hypersensitivity, and the inability to undertake regular oral hygiene practices. Gingival recession problems have been treated with a variety of surgical procedures. This article discusses a case where the lateral pedicle technique was used to successfully cover the root of a single tooth. The soft tissue next to the recession is positioned over the defect in this approach. This resulted in a periodontium that was both esthetically and functionally healthy, as well as positive patient acceptability. A clinically substantial level of root coverage was achieved as a result of this operation.
