Both types can give you a smile that is greatly improved.
Only your dentist can tell you if you are a good candidate for veneers or bonding.

Usually direct resin application is attempted initially. The procedure is less invasive and expensive. Unless you wish bulky veneers; the teeth have to be abraded(prepared). These thin ceramic restoratives are durable, expensive and require continuous maintenance.

Besides A slight prep design the difference between a composite and a porcelain veneer is strength of material

Good day; A large direct composite (direct filling) is the most simple approach to restore a missing portion of a front tooth.
If the composite were to repeatedly break or fracture a laminate may be placed. This restoration covers the front of the tooth,is more expensive- but more durable, usually made in dental laboratory.
