The aim of this article was to present the treatment of an unesthetic smile in a 27-year-old woman showing gingival recession, gingival asymmetry, and an altered passive eruption in the natural dentition. First, an apically positioned flap with osseous resective surgery was applied to correct the gingival asymmetry at the maxillary right incisors. The amount of bone resection was determined by means of bone sounding at the maxillary left incisors. Six weeks later, a coronally advanced flap procedure was performed to cover the gingival recession at the maxillary right canine, along with an enamelplasty and a direct composite resin restoration. The patient was satisfied with the final treatment outcome. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2010;30:257263.)
