  Melanin is responsible for the normal pigmentation with its prominence in dark individuals. Gingival depigmentation gives esthetically pleasing results especially in cases of patients with high smile line.

It has been found that gross removal of pigmented epithelium followed by final finishing by bur gives excellent results and less chances of repigmentation.
