This case report describes the clinical application of the coronally advanced flap procedure associated with the subepithelial connective tissue pedicle graft with palatal tunneling for the reconstruction of interproximal papillae. In this modified technique the distal end of the pedicle graft was divided into two parts, creating a bifid, which were then placed around the abutment and sutured on the facial aspect. This technique resulted in the filling up of the entire black triangle, coverage of gingival recessions on adjacent teeth, a significant improvement in the emergence profile of the implant-supported restoration, and obvious esthetic improvement
