Excellent choice for me,
This review is from: Philips Sonicare HX6731/02 HealthyWhite Deluxe Rechargeable Toothbrush (Personal Care)
I was recently told by my dentist that i had to buy an electric toothbrush if i wanted to keep my teeth into my old age.
He recommended 2, a Braun professional and one of these.
I read all the reviews, and this came out better so i ordered this one.
I have had it a week now and i can see the difference already, my teeth are noticeably whiter than before, and my teeth were pretty dark to be fair, but that's because i have naturally dark dentine according to my dentist, but 10 years of coffee stains had built up (dental phobia) and within a week they have all gone, i was shocked to say the least.
The one thing i will also say is how pleasant it is to use, it isn't harsh or abrasive but a nice and gentle humming feeling.
It also clicks off automatically after 2 minutes but before it does that it beeps every 30 seconds to tell you to move onto the next quadrant of your mouth, that was pretty handy for me because its hard to judge it yourself when you are brushing.
Personally i brush 2 minutes on the top and 2 on the bottom, but that's just personal preference and my teeth feel like silk when i have finished.
Cant comment on battery life really, i charged it up and it has gone 8 minutes a day for 7 days so far and i haven't had to recharge it, that to me seems pretty good.
Also whilst a lot of people are complaining that it packs in after 18 months, there is a 2 year warranty on it so you would get a free replacement, and i paid £75 for this and if it breaks after 18 months i get a new one, if it breaks after 2 years i will buy a new one anyway because quite frankly its still cheaper than having your teeth professionally cleaned.
Again heads, Philips Sonicare HX6013/02 ProResults Standard Toothbrush Heads - 3-Pack some people say are expensive but i think £5 per head is pretty damn cheap to be honest and you only need to change them about every 3 months, there is an indicator on the head that changes from blue to white to let you know when you need too anyway.
I also love the case that comes with it, perfect for travelling, and you can pop 2 heads in there so you always have a spare.
Nothing negative to say at all :0)
