I DO NOT recommend SaniWhite toothbrush.
Myself and the team here at Electric Teeth strongly advise you proceed with caution before buying this product.
Our main toothbrush recommendations are much cheaper than SaniWhite and will clean your teeth far better.
In the USA, the main brush we recommend is the Oral-B Smart 1500.
|Oral-B Smart 1500||2,216 Reviews||$79.99||View on Amazon|
In the UK the main brush we recommend is the Oral-B Pro 2 2500.
In Canada the main brush we recommend is the Oral-B Smart 2000.
In Australia the main brush we recommend is the Oral-B Pro 2 2000.
There are slight regional variations to the brushes, but they all include the features that our dentists recommend as essential, and offer great value for money.
Why I don’t recommend SaniWhite
SaniWhite appears to be identical to or is actually V-White, a product I have reviewed previously.
It is the same product that was found to be ‘no more effective than not brushing your teeth at all’ in an independent study by the University of Florence.
It doesn’t do what the marketing claims.
I wish to be honest and transparent. I have not purchased or physically had hands-on with SaniWhite.
This is because when researching the product and the website selling it, far too many alarm bells go off in my head.
I have tested at great length many similar products, just check out my mouthpiece toothbrush article for evidence. None of which perform to the standards expected.
I wish not to fund the companies behind this product. It is not fit for purpose. They are promoting products that can pose a risk to a people’s oral health.
And for those who think I am being paid to go against such companies, please do take a look at our ethics policy. I can assure you, I am not.
I have tested hundreds of electric toothbrushes and know what does and does not work.
As yet no company has mastered the mouthpiece style toothbrush, even with millions of $/£ investment.
SymplBrush is the best mouthpiece I have tested to date. Yet, it still isn’t a suitable alternative to your regular manual or electric brush.
Of course not having purchased and tried it myself, I am limited in the first-hand comments I can make. But, here are the reasons I simply can’t recommend it and won’t be testing it.
Please do make your own decision based on what I share.

Here are just some of the reasons I think it is worth proceeding with caution.
It is based on V-White toothbrush
A legitimate online business approach is something called white labeling and dropshipping.
These are 2 slightly different techniques to make money online.
Dropshipping is where you sell someone else’s products on your own website. You don’t own or hold the stock yourself. Once you have an order from a customer, you arrange for it to be shipped from the seller/warehouse that does stock it.
White labeling is where a company produces a product, but then puts your own logo’s and customizations onto the product. This means the original product can essentially be sold by many different companies, under different names, but the underlying core product is the same.
SaniWhite seems to have taken the dropshipping approach. I see no images of the toothbrush in a SaniWhite labeled box of packaging.
They are selling a product called V-White. You order a Sani White, but get a box labeled V-White – their own product reviews show this.
V-White is one mouthpiece toothbrush I have tested. It is the same toothbrush that went through that clinical trial with the University of Florence who found it ineffective.
1 size fits all brush head
There is just a single style and size of brush head. This is supposed to be a one size fits all.
To date, no mouthpiece toothbrush has mastered this. They are either too big or too small.
I am not sure how SaniWhite are accommodating for all the different sized mouths with just 1 silicone mouthpiece.
When I have tested other silicone brush heads like this, they have failed to reach the gumline. The gumline is the most important area to brush.
All the reviews on their website are 5*.
Yes, any brand is going to want to promote the best reviews, I get it. But, most companies will show a few less positive ones for balance.
Even the best products get the odd 3* rating.
And at least one of the reviews shows a V-White toothbrush.
The same website as CleanT – including the reviews
SaniWhite has the exact same website design, pages and key messaging as CleanT (get-cleant.com). Take a look at the images.
Even the reviews are identical.
There is a slight difference in the checkout pages and there are different contact details for the 2 companies.
In all my years of using the internet, I don’t think I have ever seen 2 identical websites, unless they were from dubious companies/individuals. Yes, websites can look similar, but when they are nigh on identical….
Who invented it
The website claims ‘we invented SaniWhite’. Who is we?
Was it a dentist a hygienist, an entrepreneur an inventor who created this product.
Oddly there is nothing to suggest who ‘we’ are.
I am inclined to think that if you have created the ‘Worlds First Automatic Toothbrush that brushes your teeth in 10 seconds’ you would be quite keen to promote your product, explain who you are, why and how you did etc.
Sold via Infomercials
You don’t see SaniWhite stocked in your local dentist’s office or in your local pharmacy. It isn’t sold on Amazon or other popular online stores.
Instead, the main sales technique seems to be highly targeted online advertising.
The advert is usually a video. Essentially an infomercial that is a few minutes long.
Much of the footage is very generic, or stock as it is otherwise known. You don’t see much hands-on with the SaniWhite toothbrush itself.
The voices can sound quite robotic and often there are some bold and unsubstantiated claims.
These are designed to capture you and sell the product in the moment. A reactionary purchase.
When you click the order now button, it takes you to the checkout page.
The DEFAULT package that is selected is a package containing 5, of these.
Who is normally buying 5 toothbrushes?
I would understand if it was the toothbrush and 5 replacement sets of bristles, but no, it is not.
In fact, none of the packages offers replacement mouthpieces.
The deal for 5 is actually, buy 3 and get 2 free. It is one of the strangest offers for a toothbrush I have ever seen.
The list price is apparently $150, but when buying 5, you save over $100 per unit, that is a saving of over $500.
Buying just 1 costs $79.
Replacement brush heads – Lack of
For a product that requires brush heads to be replaced every 3 months, you would think they would sell you some wouldn’t you?
At the time of writing, no brush heads/bristles are offered.
Wouldn’t a more logical option be to offer replacement brush heads?
The website address
https://buy-saniwhite.com/ – You don’t have to be an internet guru to realize this isn’t normal. It is quite a complicated web address.
Most would have an address that was xyz.com as this is easier to remember and type. You would therefore think www.saniwhte.com would be more logical. This website address (url) does not work.
Now to add to this web address was registered on 09/22/202. It is a little over a month old at the time of me writing this.
Yet despite this, they have a physical product already.
Although possible to create a product and then create the website after. I think it is fair to assume that most would buy the web address before creating their product to ensure they had a place to sell it.
Given it can take months or even years for a product to be created, I would have expected a much older website.
It is to only registered for a year, expiring on 22nd September 22. Again, not ridiculous, it is possible to renew each year, but most businesses would buy their website address to last longer than 1 year wouldn’t they?
Oh and on top of this when you go to the checkout pages you are redirected to https://offer.buysaniwhite.com/. Normally you would stay on the same website.
Different checkout pages
During my research, I was offered 2 different checkout pages. The same prices, but considerably different layouts.
It could be that the company are testing things (this is common) but it is quite unusual for 1 customer to be exposed to 2 different layouts.
30 day money back guarantee & returns
30 days to send it back if you are not happy sounds great right?
But like similar products the returns policy isn’t that favorable.
Normally this type of product would have a warranty of 1-2 years. There is no mention of this.
Basically, 30 days is all you have. But here comes another catch.
To be eligible for a return and full refund, your item must be in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging…If for some reason your return arrives in unacceptable condition, we will notify you by email that your return was rejected.
Although not explicitly stated, I suspect this means (based on similar experiences) that it can’t have actually been used. Meaning the guarantee is only any good if you haven’t actually tried the product. So if you buy it, try it and don’t like it, you are not going to be able to return it.
Even if you haven’t opened it and tried it, I wish you the best of luck in returning it, I don’t have much faith.
Is SaniWhite too good to be true? You decide, but hopefully, I have provided useful information to assist in that decision.
