Abstract

Esthetic dentistry has positively influenced the overall appearance of an individual and contributed to an enhancement of psychological factors, such as self-esteem, self-confidence and a boost in one\'s lifestyle. Gingival color is attributed by the presence or absence of the melanocytes which is present in the basal layer of the epithelium. An increase in the number of melanocytes along with increase in production of melanin (a dark colored pigment) contribute to the dark hue of the gingival color. Such hyperpigmentation is unesthetic which indirectly brings down the smile and confidence in a person. This article aims to bring the effectiveness of laser treatment by a comparative in vivo study between the conventional methods (use of abrasives) vs 940 nm diode soft tissue lasers in the same patient in two quadrants of their mouth. Ten patients aged between 18 and 21 years were taken into the study. This study also emphasized the psychological factors in addition to the advantage of the treatment using lasers which has made dentistry a pleasurable experience for the patient and the dentist
