If you want a good basic Sonicare, the Philips Sonicare HX6711/02 is the one to get. It has all the great redesigned features of the FlexCare but less of the (IMO gimmicky) extra routines and modes. it can lighten coffee, tea, and red wine stains, allowing the natural whiteness of your teeth to shine through.
it has two mode settings–Clean, and Clean and White. Clean mode provides the standard sonic cleaning. Clean and White mode provides two minutes of Clean mode and then an additional 30 seconds of White mode that focuses on your visible front teeth.
It built-in two-minute timer that helps you keep to the recommended brushing times. The Quadpacer gives you notice every thirty seconds so that you can methodically brush each quadrant of your mouth thoroughly.
- Advanced toothbrush uses sonic technology for whitening teeth
- Can whiten teeth up to two shades in just two weeks
- SoniCare technology clinically proven to remove more plaque
- Quadpacer and Smartimer ensure a thorough cleaning every time
- ProResults brush head provides increase coverage while remaining gentle on the gums
- Lightweight handle
- Sensitive mode is nice after dental work
- It looks very compact and neat on the sink.
- Quad-pacing makes sure you evenly time where you brush your teeth.
- You can opt-out of the gradual increase in power which is nice
- Rechargable and battery lasts for weekend trips without carting the charger
- Cleans teeth really well–all sonicare models are amazing at cleaning your teeth, even between teeth
- you have to press the button 3 times to get to the healthywhite options every time you turn on the toothbrush.
The Philips Sonicare HX6711/02is more attractive/modern looking, has all of the “pros” of the Healthywhite, offers longer timing, and a sanitizer for not much more money.
I feel this brushes a win-win providing excellent cleaning an extremely reasonable price. The battery life on these brushes are is years. The power in cleaning stays constant.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who is considering purchasing a electric toothbrush.
