Bonding is an alternative, but veneers are the best option #DrSoftTouch
Bonding would be an alternative to porcelain veneers. However, it is important to keep in mind that bonding is more of a temporary fix as it is not very durable and stains easily. Bonding is less expensive than veneers upfront, but you will likely have to have the bonding redone many times over the next several years. For the best esthetic result that will last decades, I would recommend investing in porcelain veneers. I hope this helps.

Bonding, cosmetic dentistry,
Yes you definitely have a choice of doing bonding. Couple of things to keep in mind is that coffee, tea, green tea, blueberry, black berry, red wine, green and red juices will stain the bonding much more rapidly than your own natural teeth. Also bonding is suseptible to fracture since it is plastic.
It is an alternative
Bonding is an alternative in this case. Just know the advantages and disadvantages of bonding. The advantages of bonding are cost and being non-invasive as you previously stated. The disadvantages are aesthetic and strength. It's always a good conversation to have with your dentist.
