Will having a large percentage of my caloric intake come from fruit lead to more problems than health benefits?

For the past three weeks or so, I've switched my diet up to consist solely of fruits, vegetables, protein shakes (only the powder and water), and seldom some meat. The importance here is that a large portion of my calories come from fruit; probably ~70% of my daily caloric intake. The main fear for me is that the acidic and fructose-y nature of the food will cause my teeth to become messed up (mainly from the oranges and apples). So far, my difference in energy levels has been noticeable, and I would like to continue eating this way. I haven't dealt with digestion problems or any immediate issues - I'm just wondering if eating this way in the long term will cause me more harm than good.
