Tooth erosion happens when acids wear away the enamel on teeth. Enamel erosion can be caused by the following:

Excessive soft drink consumption which contain high levels of phosphoric and citric acids

low salivary flow or Dry mouth
Acid reflux disease
Gastrointestinal problems
Genetics conditions
Environmental factors like friction, wear and tear, stress, and corrosion
