Seems a bit dicey... A lot of toothpastes have very nasty bleaching agents in them.
Who knows how they react with modern oleophobic coatings?

It won't work on proper deep scratches anyways, so why risk more because of some microscopic scratches?

I used toothpaste to fix my wrecked GTA IV disc, though I wouldn't risk wrecking my nigh-on £500 phone using it.

For disks you can use clear hairgel to fill the scratchy bits... in fact, you can use water for small scratches.

It depends on the brand, Colgate tends not to work but Arm & Hammer does a smashing job... :p
