The aim of this report is to present a new treatment strategy for gingival recession. The use of platelet concentrate gel in a collagen sponge carrier combined with a bioabsorbable membrane and coronally advanced flap procedure is demonstrated in two patients. In both patients, the recession defects treated were equal to or greater than 2 mm. Complete root coverage was achieved in both cases. The patients were satisfied with the esthetic result and appreciated the excellent soft tissue contour and texture. This technique requires further investigation.
