I chipped two of my front teeth. My dentist said the standard treatment is to get dental bonding. But, he also said that they would have to be re-done every few years. I want something that is more like one and done. What are my options?

Your dentist is right that dental bonding is the standard treatment. But, there is another option. Porcelain veneers would be a more permanent solution, staying for a couple of decades or more instead of a few years.
They are significantly more expensive than dental bonding, so you’ll want to factor that in when you make a decision.
Either way, you’ll want a dentist with experience, because it takes both technical training and an artistic eye.
