We describe a case of gingival recession in which root coverage and coronal bone regrowth were achieved after treatment with a connective tissue–bone graft and enamel matrix derivative. The connective tissue–bone graft was harvested from a maxillary edentulous area and then curved to fit the root surfaces of the maxillary left central and lateral incisors. Enamel matrix derivative was applied to the root surfaces, and the connective tissue–bone graft was fixed to the interdental bone by a titanium screw. Six months later, the exposed roots were covered with thick gingiva, and coronal regrowth of thick bone was evident at reentry surgery. This technique is useful for esthetic restoration placement with an intracrevicular margin on teeth with a thin, receding gingiva. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2002;22:559–565.)
