Numerous mucogingival issues include pockets that extend up to the mucogingival junction, inadequate width of attached gingiva, abnormal frenal attachment, gingival recession, inconsistent gingival margin, excessive gingival display, and abnormal gingival colour. One of the mucogingival issues Friedman mentioned in the late 1950s that called for apicocoronal gingival dimension was the shallow vestibule. Vestibuloplasty is the surgical modification of the gingiva-mucous membrane interactions, which includes enlarging the zone of connected gingiva, deepening the vestibular trough, and moving the frenulum or muscle attachments. In this case report, a soft tissue diode laser was used to provide vestibular extension.
