Gingival recession is described as an apical migration of the marginal gingival tissue towards or beyond the cementoenamel junction. One of the main causes of gingival recession is an irregular or abnormal tooth position, heredity, excessive tooth brushing, traumatic occlusion and weak periodontal support. The gingival recession can be minor (localized) or continued (generalized). Treatment modalities vary according to the type and severity of the recession. This paper reviews etiology, consequences, and the available surgical procedures for the coverage of exposed root surfaces, including three case reports. In this article, we will present the most wellknown and easy-to-perform methods for gingival augmentation, with a special accent to the minimally invasive techniques, as well as a most predictable outcome. However, thus far, evidence is lacking for new modified techniques which can improve the patient experience undergo microsurgical treatments, and will provide long-term aesthetic results at the same time. Keywords: gingival recession, exposed root, root coverage, gingival tissue, gingival augmentation.
