Balancing the thickness of dentin and enamel in any material always determines the color, opacity and trasnlucency of a tooth. It would be ideal to be able to generate vestibular walls as the first step of any direct restoration (this is a very important reason of why veneers integrate so well), unfortunately this is technically difficult and unprecise, especially for the day-to day dentistry.
