Is Bonding best choice to fix the yellowish coloring of my 2 front teeth if I have lost enamel there? (photos)

You can first try to whiten those 2 front teeth and see how they respond. If they look better, then you've achieved your goal. If that doesn't work, you have 2 options. You can get porcelain veneers to cover the front surface of the teeth or you can have bonding done to cover the front surface. Porcelain is most esthetic but a qualified cosmetic dentist can do a great job with bonding. The porcelain is more expensive as well. The cost is variable depending on location, but a veneer can be from $1000-$2500/tooth. I hope this helps!
Bonding, yellow, cost
You have two options:
1. Bonding: which is the least expensive option and will get rid of the yellow spots
2. Porcelain veneer on both teeth: this is a more aggressive and more expensive option
If you can maintain the color of your teeth easily, bonding is the best option at this time. You can always do porcelain veneers later.
