    • Gingival Depigmentation ‘Pathway from brown to pink’ Demand for depigmentation is usually made for esthetic reasons, particularly in patients having gingival hyperpigmentation along with a high smile line. This poster presents two cases treated with surgical stripping and use of lasers.Slide No. 1 Dr. Aditi Rathod. Poster No 7
    • Pre-operative pictures Case I Case IIThe color of the oral melanin pigmentation may vary from light to dark brown or black.Melanin hyperpigmentation is caused by increased activity of melanocytes, which are located in the basal and suprabasal cell layers of the gingival epithelium. Gingival hyperpigmentation is a benign problem that mars an attractive smile thus depigmentation procedures are primarily done for esthetic concerns. Slide No. 2 Dr. Aditi Rathod. Poster No 7

All modalities of treatment showed satisfactory results with regard to esthetics, safety, and effectiveness.Slide No. 6 Dr. Aditi Rathod. Poster No 7.
