In brief: Teeth Erosion

I have not seen any enamel distruction after using dental strips to clean teeth much more root erosion because it is deep inside the gum not reach by cleaning.

In brief: Yes.

Depending on the material used to whiten, you can affect the enamel.
If the whitening gel/strips are not ph balanced and are acidic, it will remove calcium from the enamel making it soft and easily brushed away. Dental offices typically should be offering a gel to use in the trays that is safe.
