Stupid question but how does the whitening works ? Is it another brushhead ?

It seems to just be brushing but I'm curious how that differs from other toothbrushes

This one has a stronger motor then other models. I prefer the ultrasonic design over the braun mechanical rotation type.

Yeah I was trying to compare it with the Sonicare 4500 (although they are the same price now !)

Thanks !

If you're comparing brushes within Sonicare's lineup, I believe the 4500 and up (+ the discontinued Protective lean 4100) have the same motor. The higher models just have additional brushing modes that you may or may not use. A lot of people only use the default brushing mode so paying more for more bells and whistles isn't really worth it, but that depends on how you plan on using it.

To add, within the last year or so they updated the 4100 model. It's slimmer, lighter and charges via usb which is nice for travelling. I think it's a bit weaker based on the packaging as it advertises something along the lines of 5x more plaque removal whereas the older 4100 ProtectiveClean model I think says 7x. Some people said they don't notice the difference but I find that marketing update to be a bit suspicious. So if you're looking for the minimum at the strongest motor, I'd say 4500 and up unless you can find a 4100 ProtectiveClean model. The nice thing about the 4500 and up is that I think that is the lowest model to come with an included travel case, which is usually better than looking for the case separately.

In terms of pricing, I think I saw the 4500 on sale for $50 once last year (pretty hot even after inflation). Usually I'd say $60 is a more common sale price but that was 2021 when I was more actively looking. If you have a Costco membership, the in-store package they sell is I believe equivalent to 2x 4500 with a couple of extra brush heads for $135 on sale, which if you itemize each part, comes to under $60 a pair as a brush head is about $8 per head on sale at Costco.

I am pretty sure you mean sonic. ultrasonic is something totally different. and philips sonicare mass market toothbrushes are all sonic, not ultrasonic.

soocas toothbrushes are cheaper, better, and charge from USB-C, which makes them fantastic for travel.
For example X3U is currently $34.64 USD no tax and free shipping (with $4 USD in coupons) https://a.aliexpress.com/_mtpWPoE
This is 2 times cheaper even than this heavily discounted offer. Not to mention replacement heads are dirt cheap compared to Philips.
