DiamondClean Smart vs the original regular Diamond Clean?

Both Diamond clean and DiamondClean Smart are brands of Philip Sonicare. Which one is better than the other?

To know the difference, you’ll have to know the differences between the two based on their prices, features, packages, and varieties offered. To be precise, DiamondClean Smart is quite expensive than Diamond Clean but this does not mean that based on price differences, the other one is less effective.

They are both effective but the smart features that come with the DiamondClean Smart packaging edge out the regular DiamondClean. At face value, the look and feel are more or less similar.

The key defining difference is the blue-tooth capability of the Smart Series to connect it to an app that provides live 3D mapping of your brushing as you clean your teeth. It has a microchip fitted on the brush head that automatically pairs it to the appropriate cleaning mode. It also shows you zones you have missed so that you can re-do them to achieve effective maximum brushing.

Here below are the things that distinguish between the two models.

  1. Cleaning mode: DiamondClean Smart has 3 different intensities cleaning mode that is, low, medium and high mode while it is not offered on the Diamond Clean.

What Makes DiamondClean Smart a Premium Toothbrush?

Electric Toothbrush Functionality

Philips Sonicare is so keen on research that will make their product as effective as can be. This is especially the case with their top flagship DiamondClean Smart Sonic Series. Sonicare has been described as testing their products with the rigor of a “mad-scientist”. The sonic 31000 bristle strokes and brush density is a culmination of vigorous testing and calibration.

Bristle Strokes

Every stroke makes two movements, so when you are brushing your teeth, the toothbrush makes 62000 movements per minute. This is the number which scientific findings show to be the most efficient in removing plaque.

Shape and Form of Bristles

The bristles are carefully formed into a diamond shape and crammed quite tightly to increase their density in comparison to the manual brush. The diamond shaped brush head and high-density bristles have the right balance of pressure and depth that gives excellent results when cleaning your teeth. This toothbrush uses easy click-on brush heads that effortlessly snap onto the handle.

Arrangement of Bristles

The arrangement of the bristles is also backed by scientific research. The center bristles are relatively shorter. They are mainly used to dislodge plaque from the top surface of your teeth. The bristles at the front and back of the brush head are longer. They are designed to deal with the plaque on your gumline and in between your teeth. This toothbrush can be used on teeth with braces, crowns, periodontal pockets and veneers.

Pressure Sensor

At the base of the DiamondClean Smart there is a luminous ring that flashes light when you are brushing too hard to alert you whenever you brush too hard. Brushing too hard is not recommended because they erode the gumline.

Like most Philips Sonicare brushes, this cleaner has easy start functionality. This functionality allows you to use a reduced number of vibrations that gradually increase for 14 days until you get used to the Sonicare brushing experience and routine.


This toothbrush is surprisingly quite lightweight light and easy to use. The handle has a good grip and is finished in matte which is easier to maintain and clean than rubber.

Quadpacer, Buzzers, and Timers

This toothbrush like most electric toothbrushes has a quadpacer that buzzes every 30 seconds to give you a signal that you should move to the next section of your teeth. There is also a timer that automatically switches the toothbrush off when you have brushed for the dentist recommended two minutes. The quadpacer and timer keep you on track for an exceptional cleaning experience.

Angled Handle

The handles have an angled oblong shape which aides in reaching those hard to reach areas to clean like at the back of molar.

The unique shape of your DiamondClean toothbrush handle combined with your brush heads means that even tricky spots like back teeth get a thorough clean.

Brush Heads

As already pointed out this toothbrush comes with three new brush heads.

  1. The Intercare for sensitive teeth;
  2. The DiamondClean for regular cleaning ;
  3. Adaptive for comprehensive deep cleaning.

The new kid on the block is obviously the Adaptive brush head that makes 4 times more contact with the surface of your tooth that any other toothbrush head out there.

Regardless of the brush head you use, you can use all the brushing modes. The DiamondCleam has a chip on its brush heat that intuitively pairs the correct mode with the brush head of Your choice.

Blue Indicator Bristles and Protector Caps

The brush heads have blue indicator bristles that fade out when the bristles wear out. This alerts you that the brush head needs to be replaced.

The bristles have a protective caps to hygienically store the brush heads.

Charging Port:

We have already discussed this but will point out key features: The beauty of this toothbrush is that you don’t have to deal with messy wires or cables. Using the power of magnetic induction, a sleek and classy glass charges your brush. You can also use the glass to rinse your mouth. You also get a funky travel charger that has a USB charging port; you can charge it on any of your smart devices.

Feel and Look

  • This brush does not have rubber strips but rather has a ceramic feel around it. It has a nice grip. Apart from the on/off button, the brush handle is seamless and quite lightweight.
  • The brush head is somewhat elongated and the bristles are relatively soft.

Effectiveness and Customization

While using both brushes will no doubt enhance your teeth brushing regime and give you superior results compared to an average toothbrush.However, when it comes to effectiveness and customization, the DiamondClean Smarch is Superior.

Not only does it automatically pair your brush head with the correct brushing mode via a chip that is fitted in the brush head, it also has 3D mouth mapping that tracks how effectively you brush each and every tooth.

Any tooth that does not receive adequate cleaning is flagged up in the app for repeat brushing. How good is that? After you re-do the missed zones, your teeth will have received a perfect clean that will keep you away from the dentist chair.

The new DiamondClean Smart exceptional results come at a cost though. It is relatively more expensive than the regular DiamondClean and is quite popular with celebrities like Beyonce and Oprah Winfrey who on record prefer the DiamondClean Smart.

In summary, you just want a basic top end brush that will do the job without bells and rings, then the regular DiamondClean is the one for you. However, if you want to notch things a bit higher, then the DiamondClean Smart is your baby. It will help you immensely improve your teeth cleaning skills and be much more effective in ensuring all zones in your mouth are adequately cleaned.
