I went to a dentist’s office to have real teeth whitening done, but now the stains are back. Will the dentist fix it?

If you had professional teeth whitening done on your teeth, the stains that were there at the time are gone permanently. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t develop new stains. There are beverages, such as coffee or tea, as well as foods/spices, such as curry that can stain your teeth fairly quickly.
You didn’t mention how long it had been since your teeth whitening was done. If it hasn’t been long, I’d investigate what you’ve used that has stained your teeth. If it’s been a while, it is probably just time for a touch up. Some dentists will let you keep your trays and then you just have to pay for new gel. I don’t know if your dentist does that, but you can speak with him or her and find out.
