Hi..it's because of more melanin deposition in that area. No need to worry. It's normal. Gum contouring treatments are available if you want.

The blackish colour might as well be a normal melanin pigmentation ,the one that is present on your skin to give it different tones.esthetically considering this as a problem can be corrected using lasers ,which is pain free,else can be ignored!

The blackish colouration may be due to long-standing deposits in the mouth or due to decay of the tooth near gum region(cervical caries). please visit a nearby dentist for proper treatment..
