Fibrous hyperplasia is a nonneoplastic lesion of fibrous connective tissue origin considered to be a histologic variant of fibroma that causes esthetic and functional problems. The choice of treatment should always be founded on basic principles of pathology and sound surgical judgment. Diode lasers have several distinct advantages over other therapy, as they provide a bloodless field and also allow histological examination without distortion, resulting in a painless postoperative period and no collateral damage to adjacent tissues. This article present two cases of fibrous hyperplasia occurring on gingiva and labial mucosa in the second decade of life, treated by diode laser therapy with 1 year follow-up and no recurrence.
