Irritational fibroma is a commonly occurring oral lesion, which may mimic many other pathological conditions. In this case report, we present a case of a 15-year-old male with an ill-defined overgrowth on the gingiva which was diagnosed with an irrational fibroma due to the presence of calculus. This was then excised using biolase laser, and uneventful healing was noted postoperatively. The advantage of laser over conventional treatment is that it helps in better precision, clean surgical field, and lesser postoperative complications.
