It just could b a normal occurance melanin pigment deposition thogh it can also b lightened for cosmetic reasons if so desired can you send me pictures of gums to adv you better.
black gingiva or gums are not unhealthy but they are ugly as pink looks good to eyes. depigmentation (removal of black stains from it) can be done by lasers or by surgery.
The black colour of gums is due to the melanin pigment, nothing needs to be done regarding it, even though you are very concerned, then you may see an experienced periodontist for some gum surgeries.
You can go for depigmentation procedure for gums.
