A case of Depigmentation was carried out at AHEAD Academy, New Delhi. A 24 year old male came to the clinic with discoloured blackish gums. The procedure was carried out by our new batch of students at AHEAD Academy, New Delhi. Gingival pigmentation is a major concern for a large number of patients visiting our clinic. The patients with excessive gingival display and pigmentation are more concerned aesthetically. Most pigmentation is caused by five primary pigments out of which melanin shows the maximum incidence rate. Melanin hyper pigmentation usually does not present as a medical problem, but patients may complain about their anaesthetic black gums. The gingiva is the most frequently pigmented intraoral tissue, with the highest rate observed in the area of the incisors.
