Fun Ways To Use Toothpaste Beyond Your Teeth

There should be no question that your toothpaste is designed to clean your teeth, and that is what we recommend you use it for. However, when you are not squeezing out toothpaste to dazzle your smile, there are some other handy ways to put it to use. Did you know that you can use toothpaste to accomplish the following?

  1. Polish Silver Jewelry: Grab an old toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste and work in a circular motion to give your silver jewelry an extra sparkle.
  2. Repair a CD or DVD Scratch: Before you throw out that DVD that keeps skipping, try buffing out the scratch with your toothpaste. Simply use your finger to rub the toothpaste on the disk. Keep rubbing as you put it under warm water. Wipe it dry with a soft cloth and discover your scratch-free DVD or CD!
  3. Fill Wall Holes: You don’t have to buy expensive products for small holes or cracks in your walls, especially those minor blemishes caused by nails. Your toothpaste can serve as an effective filler. Smooth it over with a spatula, use a bit of touch-up paint and your walls can be restored to new.
  4. Clean The Iron: If you have residue on your iron blade, a little toothpaste can get it sparkling clean. Just don’t forget to rinse off the toothpaste with a damp washcloth or sponge before you start ironing your clothes again.
  5. Pimple Treatment: After you brush your teeth before bed, go ahead and dab some toothpaste on your pimples too. Toothpaste can dry out acne overnight and help them go away faster.

While toothpaste is known for handling bacteria, plaque and stains on your teeth, it can also be useful around the house too. Your toothpaste can be a budget-friendly solution to common problems ranging from acne treatment to DVD scratches!

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
