I am a 30 year old female. I want to know how long after dental bonding can I eat?

Right away! Or at least right away after the numbness goes away! ;)
Right away.
Bonding material is set with the light so it's ready to go as soon as the anesthesia wears off.
Immediately actually.

In my office, it’s immediately. Should be fine.
You can eat immediately because once the curing light cures the bonding it is set and ready for use.
Right away!!
There's no reason you can't eat immediately after having bonding done - it's as hard as it will ever be when you leave the appt...
Thank you for your question. Almost all dental bondings are bonded with a light curing adhesive and the bond is set with the light. Once they take the light away, your bonded tooth is set.
If your bonding was cured with a curing light, it is fully cured by the light. It will be ready for function immediately. If your bonding is necessary due to dental decay, and if you want zero cavities for the rest of your life, do this. Purchase and study the book:
Do what you learn and you will never have another cavity.
Thank you for your question.
