Toothpaste Does More Than Clean Your Teeth!

Toothpaste Bring Applied on a Toothbrush Alexandria, VA

At Green Dental of Alexandria, we always recommend that you use your toothpaste for cleaning your teeth. However, we also value the importance of using the items you have on hand for other helpful purposes around the house. As it turns out, your toothpaste can be an effective cleaning solution for all types of stubborn stains – not just the ones on your teeth!

If you’ve suddenly decided to switch brands or flavors or you simply have an extra tube hanging out in your drawer, consider these common household items that can be cleaned or polished with that toothpaste:

  • Erase scuff marks from your shoes
  • Polish silver jewelry
  • Defog your goggles
  • Brighten car headlights
  • Remove crayon marks from a wall
  • Shine piano keys
  • Clean water stains from wooden floors or surfaces
  • Buff away scratches from a CD

Who says a tube of toothpaste isn’t one of the most valuable investments? Not only does fluoride toothpaste keep your teeth and gums healthy, it can also save you some money on expensive household cleaning products. Stock up and enjoy the benefits of toothpaste in your home – just don’t forget its primary job of cleaning your smile!

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

Top shelf dental care. Convenient location via METRO/King Street Station. Patient's dental chair features back massage capability along with TV viewing (CNN). Dr. Hye Park is very smooth. Dental experience beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.

Once again, even the cleaning was uneventful. Love being able to look outside while I'm in the chair. Dr. Park has the most gentle & tiny hands ! Love this place and the staff.
