It's been 2 weeks since 9 of my upper teeth were bonded due to receding gums. I have been in pain since. What can I do?

Pain and sensitivity after bonding #DrSoftTouch
I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing pain and sensitivity having having bonding done. It's very unlikely that the curing light has damaged your nerves. I suspect that there is something else go on that that is causing the nerves in these teeth to be inflamed. I would recommend returning to your dentist for a complete evaluation. I hope this helps.

Sensitivity after bonding
Hi there. I am sorry to hear you are having sensitivity after the work you had done. I suggest you go back to your dentist and explain your pain and all of your concerns with him/her. If at that point you do not wish to continue treatment with your dentist, do some research and find a dentist that you feel is good, and get a second opinion.
It is very unlikely that the curing light (the light used to harden the material) has damaged your nerve making it so that you need a root canal. There is definitely and underlying issue.
Pain since bonding
I suggest you schedule an appointment with the dentist that did the bonding. He/she will want to know that you are having a problem. It is not common to hear that a curing light caused a tooth to need a root canal. I suspect there is something else happening that is causing the nerve in these teeth to be inflamed.
