Dental cleaning: Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) is a great "tool" for periodontal (gum) maintenence, but the stains can be unsightly. Have a thorough dental cleaning done-the polishing paste dental offices use comes in varying grades of abrasiveness and your doc/hygienist can choose one that will remove the staining.
