Oral melanin pigmentation is considered to be multifactorial, which can be physiological or pathological and can be caused by a variety of local and/or systemic factors. Improved esthetics is the first and foremost indication for depigmentation. The selection of the technique should be based on clinical expertise and individuals' preferences, which give better results. This is a case report on comparative evaluation between electrocautery and laser for depigmentation.
