I have always preferred using an electric toothbrush, and have been using one for longer than I can remember. Consequently I have had quite a few different ones over the years, and when they start to age, I never hesitate in spending the money on a new one. The health of my teeth is very important to me. So when I was asked to trial the new Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition*, I naturally excitedly accepted. Here are my thoughts; 


What They Say:

The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition is clinically proven to remove up to 100% of plaque from hard-to-reach places compared to a manual toothbrush, and to improve gum health in only two weeks. It is also clinically proven to whiten teeth in one week.

RRP: $299.95 – Available from The Shaver Shop, Harvey Norman, Myer, David Jones and selected national retailers

What I Say:

The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition toothbrush arrived the day before my recent trip to Europe, and as soon as I unpacked it, I immediately understood why it has been called the James Bond of toothbrushes.

With its sleek mixture of matte black finish and chrome, the toothbrush simply so sleek, sophisticated and stylish, and like no other electric toothbrush that I’ve ever seen before. But what’s more is that the toothbrush has a funky visual display that only illuminates once the power button is turned on.

The actual toothbrush uses sonic technology to produce a powerful dynamic cleaning action with five brushing modes to offer a unique full mouth clean.

The brushing modes include; 

  • Clean – the standard mode for a whole mouth clean 
  • White – removes surface stains to whiten teeth
  • Polish – brightens and polishes teeth to bring out their natural brilliance
  • Gum Care – gently stimulates and massages gums
  • Sensitive – an extra-gentle mode for sensitive teeth
I enjoy using all the modes, except for the sensitive one, but that is only because I do not have sensitive teeth, but otherwise it is certainly a great addition which makes it so much more user-friendly, and suitable for the whole family to use.
Unfortunately however, although it does come with two brushes, it doesn’t have a specific spot to store the brushes, other than in the bottom of the included glass, which does a little ‘messy’, as well as unfortunately there is no way to distinguish between the brushes, making it difficult to share the ‘handle’, which I normally do with my husband.
On that note, the tooth brush also has a unique charging system in the shape of a charging glass. When I first saw in in the pack, I thought it was just an addition, a stylish glass for the bathroom, but then I realised that when the toothbrush rests in the glass (and it is obviously plugged in!), it is actually charging! How cool is that!!
And on the note of charging, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition is the perfect travel companion as it comes with a stylish black case, which is lined with a funky lime green colour, - and this case also serves as a USB case which can be plugged into a laptop computer to charge it up. Although, as the toothbrush holds three weeks of charge, you don’t need to use this feature a lot.


So what is my verdict on this toothbrush? – I LOVE it. Again, I have used a fair few different electronic toothbrushes over the years, and this one is by far the best one. It is fairly silent, and I can feel that it cleans my teeth better than any other toothbrush – and a recent checkup at the dentist confirmed that, as for the first time in a long time he commented on how clean my teeth were, and made no mention of the amount of plaque buildup, which he is otherwise quick to do – so showing that the toothbrush is practically doing the job of a hygienist!!  
I also love that the toothbrush has a set timer so it will stop when the recommended brush time, which is 2 minutes is over, and it has a convenient short ‘buzz’ every 30 seconds so you know that it is now time to move on to the next quadrant of your teeth, to ensure that all your teeth get an equally good clean.
The toothbrush is not only extremely stylish looking, it also features some very advanced settings. At just under $300 this toothbrush is not cheap, and possibly one of the more expensive ones on the market, and while again I would love for it to include a holder for the brush heads, it is how it actually cleans my teeth that is the most important feature – and that it does better than any other toothbrush I’ve ever used – and if this means that it can maintain the health of my teeth better it will essentially long-term cut down on my dentist bills, making it totally worth every cent! Highly recommended.
