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.
    - Janet Smith
  • 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.
    - Charles Coletti
  • 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!

Replace Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge

Dental bridgeIf you are missing one tooth or a few teeth, the gap between teeth can be problematic for a variety of reasons. Not only are the remaining teeth more likely to shift out of place, this movement could alter your bite. Now you not only have the problem of missing teeth, you have pain as well. Dr. Chi Fu or Dr. Kay Oen of Chester Hill Dentistry will help you determine if a dental bridge is a right way to fill the gap.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

There are many solutions for missing teeth. Dental implants, in particular, are growing in popularity. But for patients seeking a less-invasive solution that is just as permanent, a dental bridge gets the job done effectively.

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

  1. Fixed dental bridge. The components of a traditional fixed dental bridge include the false tooth – also known as a pontic – and porcelain crowns. The crowns (abutments) are attached to the teeth on either side of the area where the tooth is missing and serve as anchors for the false tooth which is fused between the crowns. The false tooth is usually made of porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or ceramics. This is the most common type of dental bridge, but it does involve the permanent removal of tooth enamel so the crowns can be secured in place.
  2. Cantilever bridge. The cantilever bridge is a bridge that is supported on just one side by an abutment. The cantilever bridge works the same way as a fixed dental bridge, and even if there is only one natural tooth next to the space where a tooth once was, a bridge can be bonded in place. The cantilever bridge is used less often as a replacement for missing teeth because there can be complications – in some cases, the restoration behaves like a lever because it is not secure on one side. This can lead to loosened crowns or fractured teeth.
  3. Resin-bonded bridge. If you are missing a tooth in an area of the mouth that undergoes less stress, like the front teeth, a resin-bonded bridge may be used to eliminate the gap where a tooth once was. Metal bands or clasps are bonded to the surrounding teeth with resin and are used to hold a plastic false tooth in place. Many patients prefer to avoid a resin-bonded bridge because it is not as aesthetically pleasing as the other bridge options.

How Is a Dental Bridge Applied?

Dental bridges take at least two visits to your Westchester dentist to complete. The first visit involves the preparation of the area and surrounding teeth. Teeth will be filed down so the anchor crowns can be fitted in place.

An impression of your teeth will also be taken so the pontic and crowns can be created at the dental lab and customized precisely for your restoration. At this first visit, a temporary bridge will be put in place to protect your prepped teeth and to leave you with a pleasant-looking smile while you wait for your permanent bridge.

The second visit involves the removal of the temporary bridge and the fitting and adjusting of the new fixed bridge. It may be necessary to schedule follow-up visits to check the fit of your new bridge. When the bridge is properly in place, it will look natural and feel comfortable so that you can go about your days without worrying about the solidity of your smile or the function of your teeth.

Why You Need a Fixed Dental Bridge

Dental BridgesAbove all, most Rye dental patients want a dental bridge to eliminate the unsightly hole in their smile. Even if you’re missing a back molar that is rarely seen, the absence of that tooth can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. It can also be difficult to bite or chew when you’re missing a tooth.

What you may not realize is that just one missing tooth can lead to a barrage of oral health complications. How well your mouth functions depend on the presence of all your adult teeth. Even the shape of your face can be altered by a missing tooth. Two of the biggest problems are that the teeth on either side of your missing tooth now have the freedom to move about. They may try to fill in the gap in your smile. In other words – teeth rely on each other to stay put, and filling that space with a bridge prevents misalignment and unwanted movement from occurring.

The Long-Lasting Dental Bridge

Dental bridges are low-maintenance restorative dentistry solutions. The restoration can last for decades if you take good care of your teeth and see your Westchester dentist regularly for check-ups and teeth cleanings. Simply brush and floss as normal to ward against tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental bridges are an excellent, convenient, and long-lasting smile solution. By scheduling a consultation at Chester Hill Dentistry, you will learn about all the restorations that are appropriate for your missing teeth and that work best for your lifestyle and budget.
