The good and the bad: Lemons have vitamin c. Vitamin c is an antioxidant and is considered to be a healthy supplement. Vitamin c is citric acid and is erosive to teeth. If your teeth are in contact with citric acid for hours, the enamel on your teeth may microscopically erode. Best to rinse with plain water after minimize this.
