What are the pros and cons of bonding vs. veneers?

i can't decide which one to get but I am getting quite a few teeth done.

Veneers are the better option. Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a lab to perfectly fit your tooth and hand painted to achieve an extremely natural looking final product.

bonding is less expensive because it only resin material. Veneers are more expensive because they are porcelain. Bonding tends to stain and chip more easy than veneers. Bonding will most likely need to be replaced before veneers.

Bonding is a lot less work, bonding simply is just placed on the tooth to fill in a gap or a chip in your tooth. Veneers are usually for more teeth, usually right in a row and it fixes the entire tooth. It depends how many teeth your getting fixed!

Bonding is less perminent than veneers. Bonding is like patch work that can be done on the teeth and veneers are more closer to a crown but less strength than a crown.

Bonding is just temparay and will eventually chip away, veneers are a little bit more perminent. I would recommend getting veneers done.

Dental bonding can be usually completed in a single visit to the dentist making if far more convenient. Porcelain veneers are much more attractive while being less durable and considerably more costly.

Bonding is generally cheaper but does not last as long as veneers, it removes less of the tooth, it is almost much more likely to get stained by some of the things you eat or drink. Veneers generally last a long time but are pricey and depending on the type you get can remove alot of the tooth structure.

Bonding typically lasts a few years, before needing to be redone. Veneers are a more permanent type of restoration that will last many years if proper oral hygiene is performed.

Veneers last longer than bonding. They also take longer to do. Bonding is less expensive and takes far less time to do. Porcelin veneers tend to look more like natural teeth.
