If my toenail fungus is cured, will the nail actually get back to normal thickness and appearance?

In brief: Nail fungus
Normal nail growth after fungal infection can occur but may take months and may never return to normal

In brief: Depends
If you are treated for the fungus by an oral medication it can take up to 6 months for the nail to fully grow out.
The nail may grow out flat like your normal nails or it may still have some thickness to it. But taking the medication is no guarantee that you cannot get another fungal nail infection in the future.
