Lasers were introduced in pediatric dentistry to replace the conventional methods and to make the dental visits a pleasant experience for the child patient. Gingival hyperpigmentation is a common esthetic concern in patients with excessive gingival display during smiling. The eruption cyst is a form of soft tissue benign cyst which appears as a circumscribed, translucent, fluctuant swelling of the alveolar ridge seen over the site of an erupting tooth. The current case reports describe the use of diode laser in treating gingival hyperpigmentation and in excising eruption cyst in two child patients successfully.
