The growing emphasis on aesthetics puts the dentist before new requests for intervention aimed at improving the smile not only in dental component but also in the gingival. Infact, even among patients is now widespread awareness that the beauty of the smile comes from balance existing, in the relations and proportions, between the dental and gum component. The development of plastic periodontal surgery techniques increasingly sophisticated allows the dentists to correct those deteriorations of the gingival tissues, such as multiple recessions, which are responsible for troublesome increases of the dental sensitivity and aesthetic worsening of the smile. The description of a case report of multiple recessions surgically treated with Zucchelli/De Santis’ technique demonstrates that, having carefully selected patient, it’s possible to resolve with a fine but not invasive surgery these smile’s deteriorations.
