One of the frequently encountered dental problems is gingival pigmentation, which is seen as a purplish staining or as brown or light brown patches.
Case: The aim of the report is to describe the management of gingival pigmentation by means of electrocautery as a feasible esthetic alternative in an adolescent girl.

Key words: Gingival pigmentation, melanin pigmentation, adolescent dental esthetic
