“What’s the difference between dental bonding and porcelain veneers?”
Dental bonding is a tooth colored (composite) resin material that is light activated and done in one visit (little tooth reduction, no anesthesia required). Porcelain veneers can mask dark stains better with a more durable porcelain material. They are very thin veneers of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. Although this procedure takes two visits, in most cases, porcelain laminate/veneers are stronger than dental bondings and less prone to staining.

“If I require fillings, what type should I get?”

Where silver (amalgam) and gold were all that were used in the past for fillings in back teeth, dental health professionals frequently use tooth-colored porcelain or composite materials that are strong and extremely wear resistant. You can even remove your old metal fillings and replace them with “invisible” ones.
