Labial and buccal gingival recession is a common finding in the adult population, which can occur due to various factors. When present, it can lead to an unesthetic appearance and can cause hypersensitivity. However, very limited literature is available regarding the incidence of palatal gingival recession. Many times it goes unnoticed during routine clinical examinations. Although there are no esthetic concerns in these regions, recession can cause sensitivity and pose a technical challenge in surgical correction because of poor accessibility and visibility. This case reports the treatment of a single palatal recession defect using an epithelial embossed connective tissue graft. The 12-month follow-up of the case showed significant root coverage (93.6%) and decreased sensitivity. The advantage of the harvested graft was that the connective tissue was not exposed, as it was tucked into the underlying flap, and the mucosal contour was maintained.
