This article describes the treatment of gingival recession associated with noncarious cervical lesions by a connective tissue graft in combination with a resin-modified glass-ionomer restoration (CTG + R). Eleven patients showing the association of recession and lesions were selected and treated by CTG + R. Bleeding on probing, probing depth, relative gingival recession, clinical attachment level, noncarious cervical lesion height, and dentin sensitivity were measured. The treatment provided statistically significant gains in clinical attachment level and shallow probing depths. The percentage of cervical lesion height covered was 74.0% ± 22.90%. It can be concluded that the presence of resin-modified glass-ionomer filling did not interfere with coverage achieved by the connective tissue graft.
