Testimonials About Our Rye NY Dentists

We believe that our patients are the best judges of the quality and service of our dentistry in Port Chester, New York. Read what our patients are saying about us below.
  • I was completely at ease during my appointment here. They went to great lengths to make sure I was completely relaxed and comfortable the entire time. The restrooms at this office were spotless. It smelled amazing in there and looked immaculate. It was nice to hear how much the staff respected them. It made me that much more confident that I was under the care of a professional. They have a very good professional reputation. I know that I'm under the care of an expert. I spend a little too much time in the waiting room. I've waited longer at other offices, but I was hoping to be seen sooner.

  • It all started with our daughter Helene, in regard to the dental practice of Dr. Chi Fu. Our daughter spoke so highly of Dr. Fu, and eventually my wife and I experienced the same feelings for him. We are both seniors and have lived a lifetime in Port Chester. I would be safe to say, that our entire experience, from the dental personnel, office manager, technicians, hygienists and Dr. Fu has been one of a positive nature. The on hands manner, in which Dr. Fu gives, is above any other dentist we have dealt with. He truly shows a concern for our well being, and takes the time to explain everything. Our appointments are given in a reasonable time period, and that appears to us, as a sign of accommodations, that were not experienced with our previous dentist. We definitely recommend Dr. Fu and his staff for anyone who is seeking an excellent, reliable dental service.

  • This is a letter of recommendation for my dentist, Dr. Fu, my dental hygienist, Barbara and all the medical staff in the office. My name is Maggie Worell and I have been a patient in this office for many years now. My first connection was with Barbara: she has been my hygienist for more than twenty years. When Barbara went to work for Dr. Fu I followed her to that office. It was one of the wiser decisions I have made with regard to my health care. My teeth have always been problematic. Barbara has been responsible for the healthy condition of my gums. She is a diligent hygienist. Her attention to detail goes way beyond the norm! You can tell she likes her job and it comes through in her performance. Dr. Fu is a skillful dentist. He is patient and thorough. He does not rush to a conclusion but rather with take his time and consider all the possibilities. He always tries to ease your anxiety. It is a big job when it comes to me and he is quite successful. Also the cosmetic work that he has done looks very natural. Dr. Fu is also one of the kindest dentists that I have known. Needless to say that at my age I have known a few and I can tell you that Dr. Fu really cares about his patients. In fact Dr. Fu's first task was to undo the poor dentistry of my former dentist. This involved root canal work gone bad and was quite complicated. He handled it in a professional and caring manner. He immediately gained my trust and it has never wavered since then. More than once I have had to make an emergency appointment and I have received incredible attention from all the office staff. Dr. Fu sets a high standard in the office and that kindness and caring shines through with all of the staff! Finally I no longer reside in the New York area. A dental appointment is a trip for me. Nevertheless I would not think of finding a new dentist. I know what good dentistry is and it is a time commitment I am willing to make.

  • Dear Dr. Fu and team, Thank you so much for the great job you did with my laminates and crowns. I have a new smile!!

  • Dear Dr. Fu, I have been seeing you for over five years as my dentist and what a difference you and your staff have made in my life. Just walking into your office I feel at home with a wealth of greetings from you and the staff you work with. The technology in the office is all state-of-the-art as compared to the last dentist I worked with who still had charts that were handwritten. Your friendly personality and warm nature comes across through the everyday work you do and makes a difference in developing relationships with your patients. For many people going to the dentist is a scary experience; I have been blessed because going to your office is a pleasure and something I look forward to. Thank you for all of the great work you have done. My trust in you has enabled me to refer family, friends and co-workers to you to which speaks volumes of your practice. Keep up the excellent work you do ... it makes a difference in the lives of others. I love to smile and the work you and your staff have done makes me smile even more.

  • Like many people, going to the dentist is not one of my favorite things! However, Dr. Chi Fu and his friendly office and dental assisting staff consistently make my visits a pleasant and relaxing experience. Dr. Fu is always patient, careful, and has excellent professional skills. I strongly recommend him without hesitation if you are in need of dental services.

  • Having dental work performed in the past was always agonizing for me and quite frankly, I'd rather have had surgery than dental work! With that in mind, I just want to thank you for all the beautiful dental work you have done on my teeth since last August. I've had several old crowns removed and replaced because of receding gums, my teeth whitened, a root canal performed and 7 veneers done on my upper front teeth. All of this work has greatly improved the appearance of my teeth, which were crooked and discolored, I no longer get food caught between my teeth, and I love my new appearance. When I look in the mirror, I can't believe it's my smile. I am a true believer that your teeth can make you look a lot older than your actual years and my new smile makes me look a good 10 years younger than I actually am! I know it's important to keep your teeth healthy and in good shape because bad teeth can lead to gum disease and even heart problems. But when the word "dentist" was ever spoken in my presence, I would cringe and hope another tooth wouldn't break, a cavity become apparent, or a filling fall out. I am so grateful that Dr. Oen decided to expand his practice by taking you on as his partner and turning over my dental care to you. I actually learned to relax in the chair while you performed all of the dental work on me over the past 10 months. You're gentle technique while working on my teeth has changed me from a nervous wreck in the chair into someone who could almost fall asleep while you're drilling and filling. And, you and Dr. Oen have a terrific staff assisting you and it's a pleasure not to have to wait past my appointment time. I would highly recommend Chester Hill Dental to everyone.

  • When I was referred to Dr. Fu's office, by my sister Kerry, for dental care, I was so happy that the staff was so friendly and laid back. Dr. Fu is the nicest dentist. After a tew visits, I asked him for a consultation for Invisalign. Since I was a child I've always hated my teeth. Dr. Fu explained the whole process of Invisalign. It really seemed very simple. I liked the fact that they were clear, removable and convenient. Now that the procedure is done I can't say enough how happy I am with the results. For the first time I'm not ashamed of my teeth. Thanks for everything, Dr. Fu; I'm actually proud of my smile now!
    - Daniele Bochicchio
  • I always felt nervous and uncomfortable visiting dentists until I met Dr. Fu. I have had many unpleasant experiences, hence my teeth were in dire need of the best dentist I could find. Dr. Fu was recommended to me just in time! I can't thank him enough. Also, my teeth are beautiful now. I can smile again!

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a false tooth that is used to fill the gap created by a missing tooth or teeth. A gap between your teeth can be potentially dangerous to your dental health, as it can cause your teeth to shift resulting in a change in your bite that could be painful. Dental bridges help alleviate this problem by using the two surrounding teeth as anchors to hold a false tooth in the place where the gap is. Typically, porcelain crowns are placed over the surrounding teeth, and the false tooth, known as a pontic, is fused between them.

Types of dental bridges

There are three types of dental bridges that are commonly used today

  1. Traditional fixed bridge – This is the most common type of dental bridge, in which porcelain crowns are placed over the two surrounding teeth and used as anchors to hold the false tooth in place. The false tooth is usually made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
  2. Cantilever bridge – A cantilever bridge is used when teeth are present on only one side of the gap. These are used typically in areas of your mouth that doesn’t experience an intense chewing load, such as your front teeth.
  3. Resin-bonded bridge – In a resin-bonded bridge, metal bands are bonded to the surrounding teeth with resin and used to hold a plastic false tooth in place. This type of bridge is typically used in areas of the mouth that undergo less stress, such as the front teeth.

How it’s done:

A minimum of two visits is required for placing a dental bridge. At the first visit, three important steps are completed. Firstly, the surrounding teeth are prepared to be fitted with a crown. This may including filing down the tooth so that the crown can fit over it. Secondly, an impression is taken of your teeth which will be sent to a laboratory to prepare the bridge and crown. Finally, Dr. Fu will fit your teeth with a temporary bridge to protect them while the bridge is prepared at the laboratory.

At the second visit, the temporary bridge is removed and the new bridge received from the laboratory is fitted and adjusted. Multiple visits may be necessary to check and adjust the fit.
