Is it ok to bit into apples, corn on the cobb or hard grinders with veneers or bonding? Or should you cut them up and chew them with your back teeth?

In brief: You're much

Better off cutting up foods rather than biting into them. If something should chip or break, it's an expensive repair which could have been prevented.
Hope this helps.

In brief: Why not

If the bondings are secure than it's ok.
But there is always the chance that with repeated stress that fracture can occur .If you are worried than use caution and cut up small pieces of food.
