Abstract: Background: Many techniques are available for the treatment of gingival recessions. Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is being used for root coverage and periodontal regeneration with better wound healing. Objective: The purpose of this case report is to present the treatment stages and outcomes of a female patient who referred to our clinic with the complaint of gingival recession. Case Description: A 29-year-old patient with porcelain fused to metal (PFM) restorations on the maxillary incisors, had Miller Class I recession on her left lateral incisor. Initially, Phase I periodontal therapy was performed. One month later, the exposed root surface was covered with PRF and a coronally advanced flap was done. Postoperative healing was uneventful and 2 mm of root coverage was gained. Maxillary incisors were restored with zirconia crown prostheses. During 6 months follow-up no further exposure occured. Practical Implications: PRF is a preferable method enhancing success rates of the operation for recession coverage.
