Oral soft tissue augmentation procedures are performed routinely in an attempt to maintain gingival health. The standard procedures for increasing keratinized tissue and vestibular area are free gingival graft, vestibuloplasty, subepithelial connective tissue graft, rotated pedicle flaps. However, the supply is limited to treat the larger areas. This case report presents a technique utilizing platelet-rich fibrin to increase the depth of the vestibule and also the width of attached gingiva in the lower anterior teeth region.
