Introduction: It is debated whether composite resin marginal/submarginal direct restoration can be usefully performed without inflammatory consequences. This histological study is the first human analysis aimed to compare, in the same tooth, the gingival tissue close to composite resin restorations with gingival tissue close to hard tissue. Methods: Eight healthy patients with almost a residual strategic tooth needing endodontic therapy, and post-and-core restoration, then indirect prosthetic restoration, were selected. Direct margin relocation with composite resin was necessary to perform endodontic treatment. The crown lengthening with a secondary flap harvested was necessary to perform prosthetic rehabilitation. Three months after marginal relocation, the secondary flap was harvested, embedded in PMMA, 4-μm sectioned, and stained to analyze the inflammation degree. Results: All patients completed post-and-core reconstruction and the planned prosthetic therapy, maintaining the stringent hygienic protocol plan. The inflammation level comparison, slightly lower in gingiva close to the teeth (3.62 ± 0.38) than in gingiva close to the composite (3.75 ± 0.26), results in a p-value of 0.11 after Wilcoxon test. Conclusions: Results highlight a minimal, statistically not significant difference in the inflammation degree after margin relocation, conceivably due to patients, teeth and cases selection, together with adopted stringent methodological and supportive measures.
