Teeth whitening is such a personal thing, and whatever method you use you should feel like you have a more confident smile as a result. I decided that my teeth were too sensitive for whitening gels you can pick up from your dentists, so at-home whitening products were the next step to a brighter smile. Most of the time this revolves solely around using one toothpaste, but with the Nano Whitening Kit (£33.83)* you use four different products that all work together to whiten the teeth without damaging them.

The kit includes the Nano Whitening Toothpaste (75ml), the Nano Whitening Mouthwash (300ml), the Nano Whitening Toothbrush and a Nano Anti-Stain Floss which is cheaper than buying all four items individually. The interesting thing about the kit is the way in which you use them. I admit, I am bad at remembering to floss purely because I finish with mouthwash and usually by then my mouth is all tingy so I think I am finished. Wrong. Like a cleansing routine for your skin, you follow a step-by-step guide in order to whiten the teeth and keep your enamel strong at the same time. This is the Floss, Wash, Bush routine, to get the best results from the products.
Using the floss first, you remove food, plaque and other nasties from between the teeth to remove up to 40% more plaque than other flosses out there. The 'high-performance floss' has Enamel Care Technology alongside naturally occurring xylitol which provides anti-bacterial action. Next you use the Whitening Mouthwash that was developed by UK dentists and also uses the technology to whiten and remineralise the teeth by reducing tooth sensitivity (hurrah!) and creates a radiant sheen to the teeth. It seems really odd at first making mouthwash the second step but I can assure you, it works! Finally, you brush using the Nano Whitening Toothpaste with the Nano Whitening Toothbrush. The toothbrush has "Whitening Bristles" with clinically proven whitening bristles to remove 35% more stains than other toothbrushes, with an ergonomically designed handle which is light and so good if you're a spoonie (chronically ill person) like myself who struggles gripping large toothbrushes. The toothpaste itself also has the Enamel Care Technology to remove surface stains, reduce sensitivity, repair the teeth and create that beautiful sheen. It has 10 whitening ingredients which stains out from other leading toothpastes and actually tastes quite nice. 

The reasoning behind the different step-by-step guide is to help the product to stay on the teeth after you've finished brushing (so don't rinse!) so the ingredients can continue to do it's job afterwards, and this resonated with me because of the help with tooth sensitivity as prior to using the Nano kit my teeth were super sensitive, to the point I couldn't drink tap water as it was too cold. As another nice tooth, with every WhiteWash product purchased, Nano donate a toothbrush to a child in need. I've really enjoyed using the Teeth Whitening Kit, so you should give it a go.
