Never just a toothbrush. Philips sonicare diamond clean
Celebrating 30 years of Philips Sonicare
Your mouth is often thought of as ‘the gateway to your body’ and ‘the mirror of your health,’ as it can indicate so much about your overall health. Over the years, the awareness and importance of the link between oral and overall health has grown, with the World Health Organization adopting a landmark resolution in 2021 placing preventative oral care much higher on primary healthcare system agendas, shifting the FOCUS away from traditional curative approaches.
Three decades of innovation
Celebrating 30 years this year, Sonicare has always been visionary and supportive of the connection between oral and overall health. Developed closely with the dental community, Sonicare’s approach has been to continuously innovate to help people achieve a higher degree of oral care at home between dental visits. This unique approach led to Sonicare becoming the leading recommended power toothbrush brand by dental professionals in the US in just three years.
Never just a toothbrush
Brushing your teeth is something we all do, twice a day. While most of us brush without thinking, Sonicare has taken up a special place in many people’s hearts. It’s a much-desired innovative product, a favorite on birthday wish lists and often one of the first things people pack as their travel buddy. Philips Sonicare also helps kids build healthy brushing routines while they’re young. Philips Sonicare For Kids Connected makes brushing your teeth fun with game character Sparkly helping kids reach the recommended two-minute brushing time with ease. Going beyond brushing, to interdental health, Sonicare’s range of Power Flossers with Quad Stream technology produce an x-shaped stream of water that reaches deep between teeth, removing up to 99.9% of plaque in treated areas.
The technology at Sonicare’s heart
The range of Philips Sonicare toothbrushes used, loved and recommended all over the world today operate with sonic technology that creates gentle vibrations and a dynamic fluid action that propels microbubbles between teeth— giving you an incredibly deep, clean feeling. Along with collaborating with dental professionals, Philips Sonicare uses personalized human-led technology to help you to always get the best results when brushing – such as Philips’ most advanced power toothbrush, Sonicare DiamondClean Prestige 9900.
It uses SenseIQ technology to sense, adapt and care for your teeth and gums. SenseIQ technology is a combination of Smart features that observe your brushing behavior using built-in sensors to identify your brushing style, adjusting the pressure automatically; so no more putting too much pressure on and care for your gums. The toothbrush works in perfect harmony with the AI-powered Philips Sonicare app, which provides real-time guidance on brushing pressure, motion, coverage, duration and frequency and provides personalized recommendations and actionable steps for better brushing.
Philips Sonicare’s bright future
Since Sonicare’s inception and creation 30 years ago, and as the link between oral and overall health is getting clearer, Philips Sonicare continues to FOCUS on using technology to improve people’s health and wellbeing worldwide. To keep being more than just a toothbrush for millions of people, Sonicare puts people and innovation at the heart of all of its new product development. From technology advances to more innovative and user-friendly design, Philips is proud to say it’s achieved its vision when it set out on its Sonicare journey three decades ago to become the standard in personal oral care worldwide.
Versatile, stylish and effective, but not the smarted Bluetooth brush for the price
It’s tough to fault the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000’s performance – it cleans very effectively (as we found in our tests), offers a great selection of brushing modes and intensities, and is refreshingly straightforward to use. The downside is that its Bluetooth capability doesn’t add too much to the package. If you’re spending this kind of money, you can pick up a brush that gives real-time feedback on your phone as you brush, helping you improve your technique. The DiamondClean 9000 does its job well, but it’s not the smartest brush out there.
- Great variety of cleaning modes
- Smart looks and robust build
- Excellent carry case
- – No real-time brushing advice
- – No pressure warning light
- – Large charging base
Why you can trust TechRadar
We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 is a powerful, good-looking electric toothbrush with a wide array of modes and intensity settings so you can tailor it to suit you. It’s a versatile brush, robustly built, and our tests with disclosing tablets revealed that it did an excellent job removing plaque when used regularly.
It holds its charge well (although the charging base is rather large) and comes with an excellent rechargeable carry case to keep it powered up on the move, with a built-in cable so there’s no need to pack a separate charger.
Connect the brush to your phone and you’ll have access to some extra tools within the Sonicare app, but sadly this is largely limited to a timer, basic feedback on your brushing, and a calendar showing your brushing history over the last week. There are tips, but if you want to improve your technique, the Oral-B iO Series 9 is a better choice, costing around the same and providing real-time feedback as you clean.
The app can do a lot more when connected to a higher-end Sonicare brush, but with the DiamondClean 9000 its most useful feature is the ability to identify brush heads and track their lifespan based on your brushing habits. It can even re-order more automatically, if you like.
Overall, this is an excellent toothbrush for everyday use, but if you want to get the best app experience, there are ‘smarter’ options available for the same price.
Here we’ve reviewed the 2020 edition of the DiamondClean 9000 – the previous model lacked the pressure sensor and brush head replacement reminders.
Price and release date
This edition of the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 was released in May 2020, with a recommended retail price of 475 / £340 (about AU640). However, it’s been discounted substantially since then, and is now available for around half the initial price – or even less during sales events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
It’s worth bearing in mind that additional heads are quite expensive, costing around 45 / £30 (about AU60) for a set of four at the time of writing.
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 has a stylish, modern design that looks much like the higher-end Sonicare 9900 Prestige, but is somewhat larger. This is no doubt due to the additional controls on the handle; while you have to delve into the Sonicare mobile app to change settings on the 9900 Prestige, here you can select a mode and intensity level with a press of the lower button.
The current mode is highlighted by an LED on the lower half of the handle, and the current charge level is indicated by four small bars on the upper half. The handle has a satin texture, and is available in two colorways: black and pink.
The brush comes with one Premium Plaque Defence head, but Philips offers a range of four to suit different needs. We particularly liked the narrow neck of the brush head, which makes it easy and comfortable to use with your mouth closed (always an advantage with a sonic toothbrush to avoid mess).
It’s worth noting that there’s a small gap between the brush head and handle to allow for movement when the brush is running. It’s only a millimeter or so, but could be susceptible to a build-up of toothpaste and water residue, so it’s a good idea to clean and dry the area regularly.
The brush is supplied with a puck-style charger that comes in two parts: a circular base with a two-prong wall plug, and a transparent plastic top that holds the toothbrush. It’s a practical design – the top can be easily removed for cleaning, and the toothbrush is held securely in place – but quite large – around 3in in diameter and 1.25in tall when assembled – so you’ll need plenty of space on your bathroom counter.
The Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 also comes with a Smart-looking rechargeable carry case to keep the handle powered up on the move. Again, this is quite large (around 9in x 3in x 2in) but it’s well built, with a magnetic lid and sturdy feel. There’s room inside for the brush handle plus two heads, and the base of the case unfastens to reveal an integrated USB charging cable – a thoughtful touch that means you don’t need to worry about packing an additional charger for long trips.
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 is a premium-feeling all-purpose toothbrush that’s well built and adaptable thanks to its range of brushing modes and intensity options. In our tests, we found ourselves leaning in favor of the White mode, which gave a very clean feeling and produced impressive results when tested using disclosing tablets, with minimal plaque left behind.
The brush defaults to its highest intensity setting, which some people may find too vigorous, so give the option button a few presses the first time you brush to find the setting that works best for you.
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 is fairly quiet, producing about as much noise as a typical oscillating brush at its highest intensity, but noticeable more than the higher-end Sonicare 9900 Prestige.
It’s interesting to note that, when used with the smartphone app, the toothbrush vibrates every 30 seconds and turns off after two minutes. If used by itself, it will vibrate twice every 30 seconds but keep running. Most electric toothbrushes give you a particular indication once two minutes are up (such as a triple vibration), but if you’re not paying attention you might not realise you’ve already been brushing for the recommended amount of time.
There’s also no light on the brush to indicate that you’re using too much pressure. There is a pressure sensor, but you’ll only know if you’ve triggered it when you’re using the app.
To get the most out of the Sonicare DiamondClean 9000, you’ll need to install the Sonicare mobile app, create an account, and connect the toothbrush to your phone via Bluetooth. This is a straightforward process that only requires your first name, an email address and a password. Once that’s done, turning the brush on will make it visible to the app, and you’re ready to connect. We had no trouble syncing the brush with the app, and the whole process took only a couple of minutes.
The app presents with various brushing tips, with personalized suggestions underneath. You’ll also see feedback on your last brushing session, and a separate tab contains a calendar showing your brushing habits over the last week.
The app also detects the type of brush head attached and how long you’ve been using it, using your brushing habits to calculate how many more sessions remain before it needs replacing. The app can also be set to order replacement heads automatically through Amazon Dash.
Aside from some privacy settings related to promotional emails, that’s about it. Unlike the more advanced Sonicare 9900 Prestige, this brush doesn’t have an accelerometer to determine the its position in your mouth, so you don’t get a map in the app showing which areas you should FOCUS on and you won’t receive real-time feedback to help improve your technique.
However, if you choose to upgrade to a more advanced Sonicare brush at a later date, these options will appear and your brushing history will be carried over.
Buy it if
You value practicality With all the important features right on the handle, plenty of brushing options to choose from, and great battery life, the Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 really nails the basics.
You’re a frequent traveller The brush comes with a superb rechargeable travel case that’s thoughtfully designed to keep it safe and secure, and has a built-in cable so there’s no need to carry a separate charger.
You value style The charging base is big, but like every other part of this brush, it’s well designed and looks very Smart.
Don’t buy it if
You want to improve your technique The app will let you know if you’re not spending enough time brushing, but if you’re more worried that you keep missing a spot, you’ll be better off with a brush that can track its location in your mouth as you go.
You want to keep kids motivated Some Smart toothbrushes present the user with awards and achievements that might be patronising to adults, but will keep kids engaged. The Sonicare app is a more sensible, practical tool that doesn’t drown you with praise.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 Series (HX9911/84) Review
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9300 – Product Review
On a scale from 1 to 10, we are giving the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9300 a solid 9.
This toothbrush is without a doubt, one of the best electric toothbrushes we have ever tested, it provides a high-quality dental cleaning and a fast improvement on gum health, yet, it’s a fairly expensive product and that’s the only reason we are not giving it 10 stars.

Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900: “Like Having a Dental Hygienist Brush For You

He teaches full-time as a clinical associate professor at his alma mater, New York University College of Dentistry, is a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and serves on advisory boards for the American Dental Education Association.
Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900
The Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900 isn’t 100 percent perfect—and yes, it’s pricey—but it has far more pros than cons, making it an easy way to improve your brushing technique and get a deep, satisfying clean if you can afford the steep price tag.
Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900
Why spend money on a luxury, app-based toothbrush like the Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900 when you could stock up on cheap plastic toothbrushes at your local dollar store? Well, for one, not all toothbrushes are created equal—and not all toothbrushes are as effective as the Prestige 9900, with its real-time adaptations to your brushing style and personalized feedback on how well you’re doing. While the Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900 may not be smarter than you, it’s definitely better at keeping your teeth and gums healthy by removing plaque compared to a manual toothbrush. Is it worth its sky-high price tag when there are other, more affordable electric toothbrushes on the market? That depends on how much help you need with your brushing skills and how comfortable you are utilizing app-based technology to improve. I used the Prestige 9900 twice a day for two weeks to see how easy it was to use, how effectively it cleaned my teeth and gums, and whether all its Smart technology actually improved my brushing technique. Here’s how it performed.
Who It’s For
Most people would benefit from the Smart technology of the Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900, but I recommend it specifically for anyone struggling with their brushing routine. Maybe you’re not brushing long enough or thoroughly enough, you’re unsure of proper brushing techniques, or you just need an extra boost when it comes to plaque removal and overall oral care—whatever the reason, this toothbrush can help you create healthier brushing habits while giving your teeth and gums a consistently deep cleaning. If you’re particularly sensitive to vibration, you might not love how this toothbrush feels in your mouth, but I got used to the Prestige 9900’s unique vibration after a day or two (plus, you can adjust the intensity down a bit if you’re uncomfortable).
Setup: Done in seconds
The physical setup of the Prestige 9900 is clear and simple; I attached the brush head to the handle, plugged in the magnetic charging plate, and set the toothbrush to charge. The manual says a full charge may take up to 16 hours; when I plugged everything in one afternoon, it was ready to go the next morning. Because this toothbrush relies on app connectivity for maximum results, I needed to perform the extra step of downloading the Philips Sonicare app, registering my email, and syncing my toothbrush to the app. That process was also easy and only took a couple of minutes. In the two weeks I tested the Prestige 9900, I didn’t have any trouble using the app, getting it to sync to my toothbrush, or viewing my dashboard. It was easy for me to give the Prestige 9900 a 5 out of 5 rating for setup and ease of use.
Accessories: Just the right amount
I’ll be honest: I hate unboxing new products. I’m always overwhelmed by the accessories, and I don’t like reading through the instructions to see how to assemble, set up, or get started with a new product. I was happy to see there were only a few accessories included in the Prestige 9900 box, and they were pretty self-explanatory: a brush head and handle, a charging plate, a USB cable, and a travel case. I didn’t even need the instructions to put everything together. Speaking of the travel case, it’s a nice luxury addition—rather than pack a separate case and charger, you can place your toothbrush into the case, grab the smaller USB cable included, and simply charge the toothbrush right from the case itself. It’s not a necessary accessory but definitely a convenient one. Overall, I gave the Prestige 9900 a 5 out of 5 rating for portability.
Battery: Lasted way longer than expected
The manual doesn’t indicate how long the toothbrush’s battery will last on a single charge, but I had low expectations—my previous electric toothbrush needed to be charged every couple of days and gave zero warning when it was about to lose power, so I figured something as high-tech as the Prestige 9900 would need to be powered up frequently. Imagine my surprise, then, when I made it through the entire two-week testing period without needing to put the toothbrush back on the charging plate! In fact, it had about 10%left at the end of the two weeks. I didn’t notice any change at all as the battery drained down—in other words, it didn’t seem to become less powerful or effective over time—and I love that there are two ways to be notified of remaining battery life: through an LED icon on the toothbrush and the main dashboard on the app. I rated the battery life a 5 out of 5.
Settings: Okay, but could be better
The modes themselves are great for focusing on different goals. Personally, I have more than the average amount of plaque, so I appreciate the deep clean mode, which not only lets me take my time brushing but gives me a chance to go back over spots I missed.
I was less impressed by the intensity modes, though—you’re supposed to be able to change them manually on the toothbrush handle or through the app, but I could never get the manual adjustment to work for me. I also didn’t notice a huge difference between the manual low/medium/high settings, so there could be more variability there. Due to this, I rated the settings category a 4 out of 5.
SenseIQ: Hard to assess
The SenseIQ feature of the Prestige 9900 is basically what allows the toothbrush to detect and adapt to your brushing style, then gives you customized recommendations for settings and brushing strategies. You can turn some of these sensors off, like the one for adaptive intensity, but as far as I can tell, you can’t totally disconnect the SenseIQ.
My only issue with this feature is that since it’s always actively working, there’s no way to know how the Prestige 9900 would function without it; in other words, there’s no way to really assess how valuable it is or whether the inclusion of this feature is worth the Prestige’s higher cost (similar-but-cheaper Philips toothbrushes don’t have SenseIQ, specifically, but seem to perform the same service when it comes to sensing your brushing needs).
Is the Prestige truly detecting my brushing habits and adjusting itself to work with me as I clean my teeth? I guess so…but I honestly can’t tell. Because of this, I gave it a rating of 3 out of 5 for functionality.
App Feedback: Easy, informative, and fun to use
If you don’t like using your phone or tablet for every little household task, you might hate one of the Prestige 9900’s best features: the real-time coaching and brushing feedback you can tap into if you sync your Smart device to your toothbrush and brush along with the app.
For me, though, this is the toothbrush’s biggest selling point. It’s like having a dental hygienist brush for you, adjusting and perfecting your technique while making sure you get a thorough, satisfying clean. The app told me when I was brushing too hard or moving the toothbrush too fast, when I was doing a good job with coverage and when I had missed a spot, and when I might want to turn the brush back on after the standard two minutes to go back over neglected areas.
That said, even though I love the personalized coaching that comes with the app, I only use it about half the time when I brush. With three kids at home, I don’t always have the time (or access to our one shared bathroom sink!) to grab my tablet, sync my toothbrush to the app, and put my device in front of me while I brush. The good news is that I can still access my brushing data even when I don’t actively use the real-time coaching to see how I’ve been performing, so even when I’m not using the app for real-time feedback, I can check the dashboard for my recent data and note where I need to improve.
The app also lets me customize my brushing experience in other ways, too. In addition to adjusting the intensity and cleaning modes, I can set “FOCUS areas” where I want to brush more thoroughly (hello, back side of the lower front teeth) and check in on the status of my brush head to see how much longer I can use it before it becomes ineffective. Overall, I gave it a 5 out of 5 rating for the quality and functionality of the app feedback.
Comfort: Takes getting used to, but not painful
When I first used the Prestige 9900, I was expecting the traditional electric toothbrush sensation and got caught totally off-guard by the unique sensation of the micro-vibrations. I did not like it at first! While the vibrations were clearly smoother and more efficient, they also felt sharper and more intense compared to my old electric toothbrush. It was never painful, just jarring. After a day or two, I did get used to the sensation, and now, I don’t know if I could go back to the sluggish, clumsier vibrations of my previous model.
The only remaining complaint I have about the micro-vibrations is that they tend to spray my toothpaste all over. Maybe it’s just me since I have a smaller mouth and can’t always keep it closed while I brush, but if my mouth is open and I have to maneuver the brush head around to hit hard-to-reach areas, it splatters my toothpaste on my clothes and the sink. I tried two different toothpastes and had this problem both times, so it does seem to be a side effect of the micro-vibration feature. Overall, I gave it a 4 out of 5 rating for this category.
Effectiveness: Provides a fresher, cleaner feeling
After my first time using the Prestige 9900, I didn’t notice much difference in how clean my teeth and gums felt. Considering how vigorously the toothbrush moved, I was disappointed, actually, that my teeth weren’t obscenely smooth.
But within a couple of days, there was a definite change, and now my teeth are smoother and cleaner with regular use of the Prestige. It takes many more hours—and much more eating and drinking—for my teeth to get that filmy, grimy feel than with my previous toothbrush, and while I’m still flossing once per day, it seems like my flossing is picking up less plaque (because the Prestige is scrubbing more of it away).
In other words, you may not notice a dramatically cleaner mouth right away when you brush with the Prestige 9900…but give it a few days of consistent use, and you’ll likely feel a difference in how clean your teeth are and how long they stay that way. I gave it a 4 out of 5 rating for overall effectiveness.
How We Tested
As soon as I got the Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900, I swapped it out for my previous electric toothbrush and got to work. My first test was just brushing without connecting it to the app; I wanted to see how it performed and felt.
After that, I downloaded the Philips Sonicare app, synced it to the toothbrush, and brushed my teeth: both with the app in front of me—following along with the guided brushing routine—and without—syncing it up after a brushing session and checking how I did.
I brushed this way twice per day for two weeks, reviewing all my data and feedback every couple of days and adjusting my brushing habits to correct my weaknesses (like that one side of my teeth on the bottom left where I was chronically under-brushing).
I won’t pretend this toothbrush doesn’t sit at the luxury end of the spectrum; it retails for around 380, which is a definite investment. That price tag also makes it one of the most expensive toothbrushes on the market, with its closest competitors coming near 300.
But for someone like me, the cost of the Prestige 9900 could be worth it: I have an atypical amount of plaque, and my bi-annual cleanings are always a (painful) production, plus I tend to get distracted while brushing my teeth and overlook my problem areas. The Prestige truly does keep me focused—and the app ensures I don’t phone it in, pointing out spots I skipped.
Still, I don’t know if I would willingly make a nearly-400 investment unless I was having chronic problems with my teeth or gums and this was the only toothbrush that worked for me. It’s possible that some of the Prestige’s competitors would also help me improve my oral health routine for significantly less money. Overall, I gave the Prestige 9900 3 out of 5 for overall value.
There are dozens of electric toothbrushes on the market, but only a handful of them cross the 150 price point, offering adaptive technology and other Smart features like the Prestige 9900.
Oral-B iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush: With micro-vibrations, quick charging, and Smart sensors, this electric toothbrush is nearly identical in its luxury features to the Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900, except for one major difference: there’s no app-based interface. The AI technology senses and adapts to your brushing technique but gives you feedback on an interactive display on the toothbrush itself (rather than requiring you to open up an app and view your info on a dashboard). This makes it a better choice for less tech-savvy users, and since it retails for around 330, it’s also an option for people with (slightly) smaller budgets.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9700: One step down from the Prestige 9900, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart 9700 retails closer to 330 and includes several of the same features—five cleaning modes, pressure sensors, real-time brushing feedback, and an app-based interface. The reasons for the slightly lower cost are in the details: there’s no SenseIQ feature on the DiamondClean, the brush head is a little less sophisticated, and the charging mechanism is a stylish-looking glass (as opposed to the Prestige’s sleek magnetic plate). At this price point, however, it’s more a matter of personal preference regarding design function if you’re trying to choose between the Prestige and the DiamondClean.
If you’re looking for a deeper, more thorough cleaning and the chance to actively improve your brushing skills, the Prestige 9900 makes it impressively easy to advance your oral health. You’ll walk away from your 2-minute brushing sessions with a squeaky clean mouth and the knowledge that you really did scrub every single surface (because the app will tell you if you missed a spot!).
That said, if you aren’t overly concerned about your oral health or brushing routine, investing in the Philips Sonicare Prestige 9900 may feel like a totally unnecessary splurge. You also won’t be able to take advantage of its biggest benefits—the real-time coaching and app-based feedback—if you’re tech-averse or unable to utilize the Philips Sonicare app.

Designed to give your teeth a thorough but gentle clean without damaging gums or causing pain to sensitive teeth, it’s a bestseller for good reason.
It comes with three modes: Clean, White and Gum Care, which allows for an extra 60 seconds of reduced-power brushing to gently clean and massage your gums. If you brush too hard, which can cause gum damage, the toothbrush will vibrate. It also buzzes when it’s time to move to a new area of the mouth, providing an efficient clean that leaves your mouth feeling ‘dentist-fresh’.
Reviewers rave about this electric toothbrush, giving it a generous 4.7 out of 5 stars overall, and praising it for its helpful alerts and thorough cleaning (although some claimed there was little difference between the cleaning modes, other than the length of time they lasted).
Philips recommend you buy specific brushes for White or Clean mode, which some users said was an unnecessary expense, as the brush heads for different modes aren’t included in the price. Other reviewers said it was a shame that the travel case didn’t have a charger, or charge the brush itself.

And as you’d expect from Philips, even though it’s inexpensive, it still has a powerful standard of teeth cleaning as well as a timer and ‘quadpacer’ that beeps to prompt you to move to the next area of your mouth while brushing. It’s super easy to use so it’s a great choice for anyone using an electric toothbrush for the first time.
Reviewers are big fans of this model, giving it 4.7 stars. While some say it’s not as powerful as the more expensive Philips electric toothbrushes, most were satisfied with its performance and didn’t feel they need the extra features of the more costly models. One reviewer said: “This model is perfect value and the more expensive models (25) only have small additional features.”
Negative reviews however said the battery life wasn’t as long as the promised 14 days, and the toothbrush is lacking a light to indicate battery life.
