Dental Bonding

I had a pretty small chip on one of my top incisors for almost 20 years, and I finally decided to get it fixed two months ago.  At first I was happy as could be, but now if I look close, I can see the outline of where the tooth was bonded, which I didn't notice before.  I don't know if it has been there all along or if I've just noticed it now.  Granted, it's only visible when I look close in a mirror, but I was under the impression that it would be almost completely invisible.  I almost want to have it redone, but I'm not sure if it will always be somewhat visible.  Can someone help me out?  Thanks.

It's only visible when you look closely in a mirror, but it's a major after some years, so I would suggest you can consult again with your doctor.

Staining is one of the downsides to dental bonding. From what I understand, the new materials have shown huge improvements in the ability to resist staining, but they do still stain. Since it is bothering you, you might want to call your dentist and let them know. Perhaps there is something they can do to help with it(?).
