My teeth are getting deposited with something which gets removed after scaling but, soon develops after 20 days. This situation has taken place twice. I do not have soft drinks, coffee, and chocolates. I am very upset about this situation. Please help.

Scaling is a temporary solution. You should maintain your oral health. As I have seen in pictures, there is stain deposition in your back teeth (attachment removed to protect patient identity). There are several reasons for stains, most common is smoking, fail to brush at night, not changing the brush for every two months, ignoring the brushing of back side teeth.
Brush twice daily (especially night brushing), flossing, avoid smoking and gutkha paan. Make your teeth free from any deposition. Change brush every two months. If you follow these instructions, you do not need any scaling for several years. The most important thing is proper brushing technique. All surface of teeth should be involved, and prolonged brushing is not required.
