Can I use dental bonding to cover my front and lower teeth instead of porcelain veneers due to the cost?

Yes, bonding can be done to your teeth to make them look better. You'll need to find a dentist that is proficient in doing cosmetic bonding.
Yes you can use dental bonding to cover the discoloration. The bonding will stain over time and will have to be replaced. But it can be a great alternative to porcelain if the cost is too high.
Bonding for intrinsic stain
The type of intrinsic (deep within the tooth) stain you describe can be covered with dental bonding for a fraction of the cost of porcelain veneers; however it will never look nearly as good and will not be nearly as strong.
If you decide to go this route, have your dentist show you many cases he has treated such as yours with dental bonding.
