    Hi Eva,

    Lemon and lime juice have a strong acis that will attack the hydroxyapatite of your tooth enamel and remove calcium from the surface, making them look chalky white.

    You do that long enough, and you will be needing extensive dental treatment.

    I don't recommend this.

    I've been doing it for a few weeks now,brushing with bicarb then normal whitening toothpaste to get rid of the taste and my teeth are looking a lot brighter.
