Q.

does teeth whitening weaken teeth?

if you use over the counter teeth whitning prod. like the kind that are sold in gum guard form for home use, or any teeth whitening methods (even with a dentist) does the process weaken your teeth and make them more prone to cavities?
ie does it wear the enamel down?
