Bonding can be used to reshape your teeth and close small spaces. However, composite bonding is more of a temporary fix. With time, bonding will have to be replaced due to staining and chipping. The best option for you would be 4-8 porcelain veneers. Consult with an experienced cosmetic dentist to determine your options. Be sure to look at before and after photos when choosing your dentist. This will give you a pretty accurate idea of how your teeth will look. Good luck and I hope this info helps you. Follow me if you have more questions.

Bonding can help close in small spaces and recontour teeth. It appears that you would be a good candidate for it, but sometimes if the bonding is too large, it can chip and fracture easily.
It is best to schedule an appointment with a cosmetic dentist who can evaluate your bite and determine if bonding is the right choice for you.
