In general, the use of lemon juice, vinegar etc in salad dressings as a condiment as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle is not known to cause tooth decay. These are weak acids that are quickly neutralized by the saliva.

The main acids that are known to cause tooth decay are those that are produced by the bacteria in your mouth (in plaque, etc). These bacteria love to feed off of sugars, and not weak acids.

So, I would find it difficult to imagine that the main culprit to your situation is the acid in your salad dressing. I would recommend evaluating your overall diet, looking for other culprits and I would recommend reviewing proper dental hygiene to see if there are any areas you may be able to improve on.
