The goal of this report is to present a novel treatment strategy for mucogingival defects. The use of platelet concentrate gel in a collagen sponge carrier, combined with a coronally positioned flap procedure, is presented in two cases. Complete root coverage was achieved in both cases. Optimal esthetic results, with excellent soft tissue contour and texture, were observed. The patients were satisfied with the appearance. This technique warrants further investigation.
