We Tried Quip—And It’s One of the Best Electric Toothbrushes Out There

TEETH ARE important. Not only are they essential for eating, but they also play a role in perception. When you smile or laugh, your teeth show. When someone asks you to “say cheese” while taking a photo, your teeth are the star of the show. People notice a bright, flashy smile.

It’s why we use teeth-whitening products and avoid teeth-destroying foods. As a culture, we tend to value oral health, but in particular, we focus on the perceived appearance of oral health via a clean, white smile.

In my case, I take very good care of my teeth, but there have been two things that have really bothered me about my smile: small calcium deposits and occasional stains from coffee (in the morning) and/or wine (uh, the time depends on the stress of the day, don’t judge me!).

I’ve used electric toothbrushes because of the oft-touted benefits, but until now, have never seen much of a difference.

Once I tried Quip, the difference was clear–literally and figuratively.

To put it briefly, Quip is a surprisingly chic oral care system that uses an innovative electric toothbrush and subscription service to keep your smile looking fresh.

Users can use their Quip brush, arrange to receive monthly refills on brush heads or toothpaste, and order different products from the line to suit their needs. Quip was created with innovative performance and oral health in mind and it truly shows.

The system comes in sets, so you can pick which one best fits your routine. You can subscribe to refills or skip them and just buy a single brush for $50. In the end, the sets with refills tend to be a bit more of a bargain, so it might be best to think ahead.

The brush is sleek, super easy to use, and effective without being harsh. My usually sensitive gums weren’t irritated nor is the design bulky like other brushes. It vibrates pleasantly, indicates the timing of your brush sesh, and operates on a three-month AAA battery charge.

On top of it all, I noticed after about a month that the minimal stains and deposits that annoyed me were pretty much gone. My teeth look whiter and brighter, which is such a big cosmetic plus on top of the actual health benefits.

Now, I use my Quip twice a day (I pair it with an Arm & Hammer toothpaste made to remedy calcium deposits) and I don’t think I’ll go back to other brushes anytime soon. And honestly, that’s something worth smiling about.
