Gingival pigmentation is present in all races of the human community. The distribution and the intensity of color are different not only among different races but also in different area of the same oral cavity. The presence of pigmentation can be because of various reasons, but melanocyte deposition in basal layer of oral epithelium is one of the main factors for brown pigmentation. These pigmentation of melanin are been removed as cosmetic therapy. This case report presents two different treatment modalities of depigmentation in the same patient and hence giving us a better treatment modality between laser and electrocautery. The clinical results of these two methods have been compared by different criteria, which makes laser above the electrocautery in different ways.
