I had my teeth whitened. They looked great for a while, but now the stains are back. Is teeth whitening really some kind of scam?

No. The teeth whitening worked. In fact, the stain removal is permanent. The stains you are seeing on your teeth now are new ones.
The food you eat and the drinks you consume all stain your teeth, especially if you drink things like coffee or eat staining fruits.
Usually your dentist lets you keep your trays. This way you can just get some new gel periodically to do a touch-up. You shouldn’t need it very often.
