Gingival recession remains a widespread finding in the general patient population. Predictable esthetic root coverage has always remained the dream of any dentist. The desire for improved aesthetics and the consequent need for cosmetic dentistry have increased tremendously in recent times making aesthetic procedures an integral part of periodontal treatment. A recent innovation in dentistry is the preparation and use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) for coverage of recession defects. This report presents a case with the use of PRF membrane prepared by a novel technique for root coverage.
