Search for aesthetic treatment and smile enhancement has persisted in the routine of dental professionals. However, the appearance of black triangles in the anterior region compromises aesthetic looks and hampers one's self-esteem. Etiological factors for open gingival embrasures include aging, periodontal disease, loss of height of the alveolar bone relative to the interproximal contact, length of embrasure area, root angulations, interproximal contact position, and triangular-shaped crowns. Several surgical and non-surgical techniques have been proposed to treat soft tissue deformities and to manage the interproximal space. The surgical techniques aim to recontour, preserve, or reconstruct the soft tissue between the teeth. The aim of the present case report is to present a minimally invasive papillary regenerative procedure using platelet-rich fibrin membrane which was tucked into the pouch, followed by coronal displacement of the entire gingival-papillary unit.
