In brief: Less potent

You can still use expired whitening products.
.. Still follow instructions, just not as potent or effective.

In brief: Not harmful

But you may not get the results you are looking for. The active ingredient(s) may no longer be effective.

In brief: Possibly

Depends on how expired.
After expiration date medications begin to loose potency, so strips will just be less effective. Best, most effective, whitening system is provided by your Dentist, with strips being used (as directed on package) to maintain the professional result.
