Two cases of moderate mucogingival argyria (tattoo) secondary to silver cone root canal fillings of maxillary left first molars are presented. The root canal fillings were done a long time ago. The patients were not aware of the gingival tattoo. Radiograph showed substandard root canal treatment with periradicular lesions. The silver points were removed and re-treatment was performed in addition to root amputation and root-end filling.
