What the difference between an ionic and covalent bond?

An ionic bond is formed between two atoms by complete transfer of valence electrons from one atom to another atom but a covalent bond is formed between two atoms by the sharing of valence unpaired electrons of both the bonded atoms. An ionic bond is a bond formed between a metal and a non metal. A covalent bond is formed between two non metal atoms.
