Stop lemonade.: Stop drinking lemonade since the citric acid in the lemonade is acidic and will cause erosion of your enamel and dentin tooth layers. Best to just drink plain water. Using Sensodyne ProEnamel will help to protect the tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity. See your dentist for assistance,
