In brief: Prophy

Stain from Peridex (chlorhexidine gluconate) is only on the surface of your teeth.
It can easily be removed by a dental hygienist.

In brief: 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.
