Max ΔF (%) indicate the maximum value of fluorescence disappearance of the tooth surface exposed to the beverage comparing with the healthy tooth surface.

The differences in depth of erosion lesion and the Max ΔF value were analyzed using ANOVA and the Kruskal–Wallis test, respectively.

a~cValues with the same letter superscripts are not significant in Bonferroni correction test at α=0.005.
