You should not have any risks associated with smoothing teeth at the edge.  It is called enamelplasty and is very normal. I would try and stop the consumption of citrus though

Stop the intake of citrus, start using OTC F+ or prescriptions F+ should be used. Sometimes if the damage is minor the teeth can be smoothed. Good Luck
