    They have expiration dates, but I would say around 2 years.

    should have a expration date but I work at a dental office and I am thinking that doesnt sound good, . Also we dont reccomend whitening toothpaste as it can make teeth sensitive and doesnt really work since it isnt on the teeth long. It could save an unexpected trip to the dentist. We have patients in all the time with sensitivity and its the toothpaste they use!

    Look at the very end of the tube.........should have a date there.
    It will be stamped in...........not in ink. If you are buying them on sale, often they are within a year of expiration.

    they DO change consistency.........have never had any that were yellow but the 'foam' will be different when using them.........I just buy the plain stuff..........crest........not anything special.

    I have noticed that toothpaste changes its taste over time - basically the sweeteners in it (aspartame or whatever) loses their sweetness, but they still "work" the same. I base our toothpaste stockpile based on how long it takes us to go through a tube of toothpaste, and the expiration date. DH and I use different kinds so that affects the amounts as well.

    I don't always stockpile toothpaste when I can get it any day at the dollar store.

    But my local Albertsons had Toms of Maine toothpaste on sale this week. It's usually $4.99 but I'd never pay that price for it. After sale price and in-store coupon it was $1. So I got a dozen! They date out to 1.5 yrs from now. It's about a 2 yr supply for us.

    I hate shopping for toothpaste. Do we really need 1700 different kinds?

    We found some Colgate something-or-other on sale for a buck a tube and bought all they had, about 8. That's lasting us a while.

    I've had some toothpaste over the years that I've had for a long long time. Never an issue with it. Not even the taste.
    I would've thrown it out too.

    I always stock up on toothpaste when they are on sale and I have a coupon. The last tubes I bought were 6 tubes for 6 cents and that included tax.
