Hey Maggie
I hope you're doing well

Teeth do get effected by "vomit". However, I do not believe they will be able to look and tell. There might not even be any signs of show depending on your normal oral hygiene habits.

Hope all goes well.

The stomach acid in your puke often leaves a lasting impressing on your teeth, but most times they dismiss it as you just got sick. Don't panic, just make sure you continue brushing your teeth and flossing

As the others have said, they'll be able to tell that your teeth have been exposed to acid like the acid present in your vomit, however they will not be able to tell how or why your teeth came into contact with it. They can speculate that you were physically ill for some time, or that it came from a specific diet, they will not be able to look at your teeth and go "Hey, this girl did this"

I purged on-and-off for years without my dentist noticing. I even had eight cavities (actually more than that...eight different teeth affected, but multiple cavities... ) and he assumed it was just from the acidity in coffee. You'll probably be fine, unless your dentist is very particular in ED-knowledge.
