In brief: For prolonged period
Of bleaching can weaken the enamel.
Carbamide peroxide at 16% or below is acceptable. Avoid very low ph of some bleaching agents because they can demineralize the teeth. Bleaching or teeth whitening monitored by dentist is safer so he can also check the condition not only of the teeth but the soft tissue as well.
