ABSTRACT:A beautiful smile surely enhances the individual’s self-confidence. The harmony of smile is attributable to the shape, colour, and position of the teeth in conjunction with the gingival tissue. Gingival pigmentation occurs in all races of man and it varies from one race to another. Gingival hyperpigmentation usually occurs due to the abnormal accumulation of melanin in the gingival tissue and confers a dark appearance to the gingiva. Gingival hyper-pigmentation is removed by using different procedures of gingival depigmentation. Though the initial results of de-pigmentation procedures are highly encouraging, repigmentation is one of the common issue associated with them. This article aims at reviewing briefly about gingival depigmentation procedures and repigmentation.
