The coating of exposed root surfaces has become an integral part of our surgical practice. The bilaminar techniques consist of a connective tissue graft (ITC) obtained inside the cleft fibromucosa placed on a recipient site and covered by a pedicled flap. The success of these techniques is that the ITC receives a double blood supply, reducing the risk of graft necrosis and increasing the predictability of root coverage. We present two cases of a female patient, 18-year-old woman came to our clinic for aesthetic reasons. The surgical technique used to solve these cases, using the classification of Miller, consisted of a subepithelial connective tissue of the palate combined with coronally advanced flap, obtaining excellent aesthetic results.
