Teeth Whitening

Do you have good oral health but find that your teeth have dulled over time?

Professional teeth whitening at Dumas Family Dental can correct surface stains that keep your smile from looking its best.

Our Dumas, TX, team offers KöR whitening, an advanced system that offers several benefits compared to other in-office whitening treatments.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter Products

Over-the-counter whitening toothpaste, strips, and other products may be accessible, but they aren’t as reliable as professional teeth whitening. At our Dumas dental office, our dentists help patients experience benefits that generic whitening toothpaste and gels can’t offer.

Reduced Sensitivity

Rather than testing your luck with over-the-counter products, trust a dentist’s recommendation. The teeth whitening system we use is designed to minimize teeth sensitivity and harm to the gums and lips.

Predictable Results

Whitening strips, gels, and other products can be hit or miss. Sometimes they work, but only after several whitening sessions. Our doctors can prescribe whitening products that deliver stunning results–every time.

Worthwhile Investment

The price of professional teeth whitening may seem high, but it’s a great investment that ensures you see results. This is unlike the trial-and-error of testing out various over-the-counter products, which can add up over time.


Our dentists can assess the shade of your smile and determine how much whitening product is needed for your unique case. You won’t find this personalization on the back of a whitening strip box.

Unhappy With the Shade of Your Smile?

We Offer KöR Whitening Products

In-Office Whitening

We offer in-office whitening for patients who want an extra whitening boost. The KöR Max solution begins with two weeks of at-home whitening, followed by one in-office whitening visit.

At-Home Whitening

KöR whitening products are ideal for at-home whitening. The KöR Home Whitening System is available for nighttime or daytime wear through the KöR-Night™ or KöR-Day™ products.

No LED Lights Needed

Much of the discomfort and other concerns that result from teeth whitening are caused by harmful LED lamps and lasers used to activate the whitening gel. No LED lights are used for our at-home or in-office treatments, but you’ll still get the same or better whitening results.

Ingredients Found in KöR Whitening Products

Each KöR whitening product has a different chemical makeup. The type you choose will depend on the time you have to wear the product and how dramatically you want to whiten your teeth.


Since KöR-Night is worn for a longer period, the kit comes with KöR-Seal whitening trays that keep the gel, made up of 16% carbamide peroxide, in place throughout the night.


The KöR-Day Whitening System is made with 9% hydrogen peroxide that’s intended to be worn for shorter periods than KöR-Night and without the KöR-Seal whitening trays.

KöR Max

KöR Max patients will use the KöR-Night 16% carbamide peroxide gel before coming into the office. The in-office treatment is a 34% Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide® Peroxide gel.

Did You Know? Teeth Whitening Cleans Your Teeth

General dentistry check-ups are necessary for maintaining your overall health, but teeth whitening also rids the teeth of plaque and tartar.

The KöR Refrigeration Process For Reduced Tooth Sensitivity

All whitening products can potentially cause a bit of sensitivity because of the powerful ingredients they’re made with, but KöR uses a special refrigeration process to protect sensitive teeth.

All our whitening products come with a desensitizing gel that helps minimize sensitive teeth after treatment.


Room-temperature whitening products are made with chemical stabilizers to keep the gel fresh until it gets to the customer.

These chemical stabilizers are a large reason why sensitivity results from teeth whitening. Since KöR whitening products are refrigerated, there are no chemical stabilizers used in manufacturing.


Unlike generic whitening products that sit at room temperature on store shelves, KöR whitening products are refrigerated the entire time they’re in storage at KöR’s warehouse.


KöR products continue their refrigeration journey through transportation from the warehouse to delivery to our office. This ensures that the product’s quality isn’t diminished while traveling in slow freight trucks with unstable temperatures.


Thanks to KöR’s unique refrigeration process, when the product is applied in our office, it’s as fresh as the day it was made.

Perfect Your Teeth After Orthodontics

You’ve put in the time to straighten your teeth with braces or Invisalign, but you’ve noticed your teeth are less bright than they used to be. If your smile has dulled from orthodontic treatment or you’re seeing spots where your brackets used to be, teeth whitening can polish off remaining surface stains for whiter teeth.

Understanding Types of Staining

Teeth whitening is a great way to dip your toe into cosmetic dentistry. However, there may be better whitening solutions for your needs, depending on your stains.

Extrinsic Stains

Extrinsic stains, also known as surface stains, can be treated with our KöR whitening products because they originate on the surface of your teeth. These stains are usually caused by drinking dark beverages, eating darkly colored foods, and smoking or chewing tobacco.

Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic stains originate from within the tooth and can be caused by oral injury or certain medications. Although KöR products can address these stains more than other professional whitening systems, veneers may still be a better solution to treat intrinsic stains.

Dental Veneers Cover Up Intrinsic Stains

Veneers are thin porcelain shells placed on top of your natural teeth to cover any discoloration, cracks, or dental concerns you may have. Dental veneers are an ideal treatment if you have intrinsic stains that teeth whitening products cannot treat. Veneers are also stain-resistant, so you can have bright, white teeth for years to come.
