You shouldn't do it on a regular basis of course...just occasionally if you have staining. And be sure to brush your teeth about 10 minutes after. Then you'll have no trouble with the enamel.

You are not going to use it enough to damage the enamel.
The grit that is used when your teeth are cleaned at the
dentist is much more harmful to the enamel.

Does it really damage the enamel of the teeth? the one comment being that you need to brush your teeth afterwards.
