Enamel helps protect your teeth from daily use such as chewing, biting, crunching, and grinding. Although enamel is a hard protector of teeth, it can chip and crack. Tooth erosion happens when acids wear away the enamel on teeth. Some of the factors that cause tooth enamel erosion are:
1) Excessive soft drink consumption (high levels of phosphoric and citric acids)
2) Fruit drinks (some acids in fruit drinks are more erosive than battery acid)
3) Dry mouth or low salivary flow (xerostomia)
4) Environmental factors (friction, wear and tear, stress, and corrosion).
