You can send in to the Lab and they will remove the tooth to remove the stain. That option use after you try to remove it with a hand instrument. Most of time the lab needs to do a “refresh” to make the denture look aesthetically pleasing.

Kleenite Denture Cleanser works well for home use. You can find it at Walgreen’s and if course: Amazon.

I very carefully use an ultrasonic scaler. Much of the stain you are talking about though is imbedded and cannot be removed without harming the denture.
