In brief: Chewing gums
Sugar free gum stimulates saliva which have enzymes that replenish the enamel and wash away the bacteria.
So it can prevent discoloration, but see your dentist to make sure you don't have fractures or potential fractures that can get worse when chewing gum.

In brief: Probably.
Teeth discoloration can be prevented by toothbrushing with hydrogen peroxide.
Certain gums can prevent discoloration by making your breath fresh and scrubbing the teeth enamel.
