In bleaching process 0.05 mm of enamel thickness is bleached which results in white fresh layer underneath the outer exposed layer of enamel. So everytime you bleached, your teeth becomes thinner at some extent.
The major component of teeth bleaching gel are 10% carbamide peroxide (CP) and 35% hydrogen peroxide (HP) which are applied on the enamel surface as per the follows of manufacturer’s recommendations.
