Dental Prophylaxis: Tooth staining from Chlorhexidine Gluconate (or from something else) can normally be removed with a thorough dental prophylaxis (tooth cleaning). Every dental office will have a somewhat different fee for this routine service. If extra time is involved due to unusual staining, a higher fee might be warranted.
