Frequently Asked Questions

For added convenience, our team has compiled several of the most popular questions we hear from patients below and their respective answers. If you still don’t see the information you’re looking for, that’s not a problem! Contact Monet Aesthetic Dentistry today to speak to a staff member or even Dr. Metzger directly – they’ll be happy to help.

Why is your practice named Monet Aesthetic Dentistry?

We believe superior dental work includes artistry, but that isn't the real answer to this question. Monet is Dr. Metzger's middle name. You could say that Dr. Metzger is truly the Monet of aesthetic dentistry!

Why do you use adult fluoride?

Traditionally, fluoride is something we consider important for kids with developing teeth. However, we promote the use of fluoride in adults because it has been shown to deter tooth decay in adults. As we age, we find that seniors will start developing more cavities due to prescription medications and dry mouth from less salivary production that occurs with aging. We believe it is just as important for children as for adults.

What is LVI?

LVI stands for the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. It's a postgraduate educational institution that is focused on teaching state-of-the-art dental techniques. For more information on LVI, visit their website.

Do you see children?

Yes. Dr. Metzger is proud to have a family-friendly practice that prides itself on long-term relationships – in fact, many of the patients she first saw as children are now bringing in children of their own! Our menu of services features several options that are a perfect fit for growing smiles.

Will you treat dental emergencies?

Absolutely! If you are a patient of record, our team promises to accommodate you on the same day as your initial call and provide fast, effective relief for you or your loved one’s emergency situation. If you are a new patient, we will still strive to see you as soon as possible. If you are calling after-hours with a dental emergency, please dial our regular office line and then wait for the answering machine message. This will provide a phone number that you can contact for further assistance.

Do I need a new dental crown?

Dr. Metzger will not be able to give you a confident answer without examining your smile in-person. In most cases, though, the following situations can benefit from this type of high-quality, custom-made restoration:

· When a tooth is too decayed for a regular filling to fix

  • When a tooth has been seriously injured
  • When a tooth is weakened
  • When a tooth has serious cosmetic imperfections

What’s the best way to improve the way my smile looks?

Dr. Metzger offers a lengthy menu of cosmetic services, including porcelain veneers, metal-free restorations, Invisalign® Clear Braces, direct bonding, teeth whitening, and more. In order to determine the option or options that fit your unique needs and preferences best, she strongly encourages you to schedule a cosmetic consultation here in Farmington, MI. Our team wants you to feel completely confident about your results, after all!

Do you take dental insurance?

Monet Aesthetic Dentistry is an in-network provider for several major insurance plans. We are happy to make the reimbursement process easy, predictable, and stress-free for our valued patients. To learn more, please visit the new patients page.

What are my payment options if I don’t have dental insurance?

Our in-house membership plan offers exceptional value for a straightforward fee – patients can look forward to receiving virtually all of the usual benefits of dental insurance without the unpleasant surprises. Additionally, CareCredit financing can help make even the most extensive treatment plans very affordable. Our team will review these options in greater detail with you during an initial consultation.
