Gingival recession is a universal dental problem that can be especially difficult to treat when it involves the esthetic zone. The purpose of this case report is to demonstrate a multidisciplinary approach to treat a severe gingival recession in the esthetic zone for a patient with a high smile line. A rare complication of post removal during endodontic retreatment resulted in a severe gingival recession of the maxillary right central incisor. The gingival asymmetry was highlighted by the patient's high smile line. A multi-disciplinary approach was used to address the gingival recession including a gingival graft, orthodontic extrusion, and esthetic restoration. This case report highlights how a team of dental professionals can work together to treat a severe gingival asymmetry in the esthetic zone, combining periodontics, orthodontics, and prosthodontics.
