If : If the bonding was done well, polished well, mimics natural tooth form properly, and contoured physiologically at the gum line then you should feel comfortable with it in a couple of weeks.

Give it more time: If you are still not used to it after a few weeks, you may wish to have your dentist re check the bonding. It could possibly be over contoured and need some adjusting. Also perhaps it needs to be polished so food won't stick.
