Gingival pigmentation is one of most difficult cosmetic problems to treat through conventional ways. Although physiological and ethnic melanin pigmentation is not a medical problem. The black pigmentation was removed with Er-YAG laser and Nd-YAG laser. CO2 laser is revealed an easy, safe, short operation time, and not discomfort to the patient post operatively. This way of removing unwanted pigmentation relieved a good result clinically. Eighty patients were submitted in comparative study between CO2and mechanical bur abrasion. CO2 laser is revealed an easy, safe, short operation time, and not discomfort to the patient post operatively. The results were evaluated in histological lab in al-sadar teaching hospital.
