Gingival recessions (GRs) in anterior teeth are the most common complaint of patients for disharmony in the smile. The objective is to show a clinical case of GR treatment by the tunnel technique associated with subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG). We report a patient of 56-year-old, female, frequents specialization clinic of periodontics to treat Miller's Class I GR of 11 and 21 teeth. It was used tunnel technique because it does not result in scarring. This technique was associated with SCTG to guarantee increase the gingival thickness. After 14 days, the gingival margin was over the cemento-enamel junction with esthetic harmony. The position stability was maintained for 90 and 180 days. It is possible to conclude that a modified tunnel technique can be considered as a treatment of multiple GR on esthetic area.
