The type of restoration you describe (or our interpretation of what you've described) isn't all that common. There was a time when repairs were made like that using cast gold restorations (in the 1950's and before) but keeping that type of restoration in place over the long-term frequently proved problematic.

Dental bonding (introduced in the 1960's) is typically the way non-crown or non-veneer repairs are made today.

This page discusses fees for dental bonding. The restoration you describe would probably be classified as a 3 or 4 surface restoration (anterior/front tooth).
