The lack of dental papilla in the anterior maxila leaves unsightly smile and the dissatisfied patient. Several surgical techniques can be performed to gain interdental papilla, but few of them are predictable. This case report shows a multidisciplinary treatment alternative to increase disabled papillae in single-tooth implant in an aesthetic region with the use of injectable hyaluronic acid. Monitoring and evaluation of results was made by clinical and photographic monitoring of the progressive increase of the papilla in millimeter measurements through computer software. After 8 applications in 5 months, prosthetic emergence profile of adjacent tooth modification, papillary inflammatory process induction, we can observe 1,0 mm papilla gain. It can be concluded that the use of injectable hyaluronic acid in association with gingival prosthetic conditioning led to increased gingival papilla between tooth and dental implant and can be considered a treatment alternative for correction of minor defects papilla.
