How long does dental bonding last on front teeth?

Does tooth bonding break easily?
It takes approximately 30-60 minutes per tooth to complete the bonding process.

The tooth surface will then be roughened and conditioned so that the bonding easily adheres to the tooth.
How long after tooth bonding can I eat?
