Abstract
Background: Dental esthetic problems in adolescence have significant impact on the psychologic health and well being during this important period of development. These dental problems not only hinder the normal oral functioning of these children, but also have a considerable psychological impact.

One of the frequently encountered dental problems is gingival pigmentation, which is seen as a purplish staining or as brown or light brown patches.
Case: The aim of the report is to describe the management of gingival pigmentation by means of electrocautery as a feasible esthetic alternative in an adolescent girl.

Key words: Gingival pigmentation, melanin pigmentation, adolescent dental esthetic
