In brief: Initially less but..

Composite bonding is almost always less expensive in the short term. However, over the long run, if it has to be done several times, it may turn out to be more expensive.
Porcelain veneers are stronger, more durable, stain less, and have a more natural appearance. Discuss your options with your own dentist before deciding what is best for you. Think long term.

In brief: Not usually

Typically, resin bonding is less expensive than porcelain veneers.
Resins require planning and artistry. They are more likely to chip and stain. Nor does resin last as london as porcelain restorations.

In brief: No

Bonding is a laymans term that covers a lot of things dentists do .
We bond crowns, filings veneers , sealants onto teeth. Veeners have a lab fee + labor a veener is a porcelain facing like a picture frame that is bonded "glued " onto your teeth. Dentists add composite ( labor) incrementally onto teeth to cover some or all of a tooth or teeth. This is probably what you are referring to.
