EXCESS USE OF TEETH WHITENING PEROXIDE CAN BE HARMFUL TO YOUR TEETH.OVERUSE CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO TEETH ENAMEL AND THE TISSUES INSIDE YOUR MOUTH

In brief: Not likely.

Hydrogen peroxide is water with an extra molecule of oxygen.
Therefore it is an oxygenating meaning it can whiten the teeth slightly. It would take a considerable amount of usage to damage enamel. You might notice a non-harmful condition called black hairy tongue with too much usage.
