“Lemon water can damage your enamel”

Unfortunately, acid-worn tooth enamel is being seen more and more frequently, a worryingly escalating trend. Drinking lemon water may be a healthy drink to detox/cleanse your system but it will put you at risk for TOOTH EROSION.

A condition where the thin, protective layer of enamel slowly wears away from your teeth. When the ENAMEL IS WORN away, it exposes the underlying dentin which is softer and yellower. This may cause tooth SENSITIVITY and unsightly teeth that appear HOLLOWED and YELLOWED.
