Jaw is just really sore. Teeth feel trapped into changing occlusion. Are my teeth moving around? Had light tooth bonding and polishing front teeth set

In brief: Bite effects jaws

If jaw soreness occurred after the bonding procedure, than a slight excess of material on the back of the upper front teeth or top of the lower front teeth can cause a premature contact that can alter the muscle pattern of lower jaw closure, and create the symptoms you describe.
Ask your dentist to re-evaluate the occlusal contacts of your front teeth for heavy contacts.

In brief: See dentist

Teeth shift and change with age.
Any new restoration can cause an imbalance. Go back to your dentist to make sure new restorations are not slightly over contoured. If that's not the problem, have your occlusion evaluated by an orthodontist.

In brief: Go back to DDS

Did the soreness happen right after the bonding? If yes, go back to the dentist for an adjustment.
If no, go back to the dentist to find out what is causing the soreness.

In brief: Bonding changed bite

Even the smallest amount of bonded material, when not placed in "balance" with the original bite, can cause your teeth to move and make your jaw sore.
Return to your dentist as soon as possible and ask her to check your bite. Your teeth will not "self adjust." the longer you wait, the more severe your symptoms can get and the longer it will take your mouth to recover.
