Anyone who has heard that drinking a glass of hot lemon juice in water in the mornings could help them to detox has been warned that it could also cause them to need cosmetic dentistry.
It has been claimed that this mixture may help the liver to filter out toxins, assisting in weight loss.

Porcelain dental veneers may be recommended where a number of teeth have been damaged.
