Utilizing soft tissue augmentation to gain keratinized tissue around natural teeth and dental implants has long been a hot issue among clinicians. Although it still remains controversial, a certain amount of keratinized tissue has been considered necessary to maintain periodontal / peri-implant health and to prevent further gingival recession. In this article, we observe the use of connective tissue graft to gain keratinized tissue around natural teeth and dental implants in two clinical cases. After twelve-month follow-up, both cases showed significant gain of the keratinized tissue with connective tissue graft. In comparison to free gingiva graft, the preliminary data showed that this approach may provide better harmony and esthetic outcomes.
