It's the Diamond Ultrasonic Toothbrush!

The toothbrush and UV sanitizing station is a product from Bling Dental--pretty snazzy huh? I first saw this guy on a LivingSocial deal. The whole thing was regularly $219 (and it comes with everything you see above, including three toothbrush heads), but the living social deal was for something like $75 or $79.
MG had been raving to me about his electric toothbrush, telling me once he got his he was never going back to regular toothbrushes. And I had been going back and forth about getting one since I am a hard brusher--I brush really hard, and without even realizing it. My gums are showing some wear from it, and the electric toothbrushes are supposed to help reduce that.
So, I said, "Why the heck not?" After all, I've wasted 70 bucks on more stupid things before (Remember Hello Kitty sewing machine, that I still have yet to use?? Whooooopsie!).
The only thing that sucked is I waited like 2 months to get the dang thing (part of it, though--I think-- was that I dont think my order went through the first time I went to purchase on the website). But, it came yesterday!
Girls (and the few dudes who read this), this toothbrush is awesome! It has three settings: Whitening, Massage and Gentle. I used the Whitening setting last night and my mouth was all a-tingle for a little while after using it, and my teeth felt SUPER clean. I used it again this morning and it was great!
Another cool thing is that it has a 2 minute timer built in (which apparently is the recommended amount of time to brush your teeth)...and every 30 seconds it does a slight pause to let you know to move on to another 1/4 of your mouth. So, now I can go even more brain-dead while brushing my teeth!!! :)
It also has a UV station that apparently sanitizes and de-germs the brush head which I think is pretty snazzy! I'm not sure if it actually does anything, but a pretty blue light comes on when you put it in there, so if nothing else, my toothbrush head is getting its version of some sunshine! :)
So, if you're in the market for a new toothbrush, I TOTALLY recommend this guy!
