Gingival recession is described as the exposure of the root surface by an apical shift in the position of the gingiva. Gingival recession increases in both prevalence and severity with age, and the mandibular incisor region is a commonly affected area.Mucogingival stress due to occlusal trauma or frenal/muscle pull is an important etiologic factor. This paper highlights a series of cases with recession and reduced attached gingiva in lower anteriorin the age group of 18-25 years. A vestibular deepening procedure eliminating the pressure points resulted in a tremendous gain in attached gingival with good root coverage in a single step.
