I don't know if I would say it "doesn't do anything to them". Any contact with coke leaves a sugary layer on your teeth. Drinking it slow just makes it worse.

Hmm, well, about that sugar layer, you got that anyway. Its called acquired pellicel and you get it only moments after having cleaned your teeth. You need more than sugar for a cariogenic lesion to grow...
The bigger danger is the acid in it, and that has only a significant influence over time, over the short term, regenerative capacity of your teeth are more than good enough, as long as you have a proper mouth hygiene ;-)

If so, you would know a lot more about teeth than me.....
