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!! Everyone in your office has treated me with concern and kindness, and I am impressed by your desire to be sure everything is just right. Many people have commented on the change in my looks. They tell me that I should have done this years ago. I am inspired to go on with making over other areas in my body for a new beginning. They say that it is never too late!

  • 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!

Questions About Family or Cosmetic Dentistry?

Below is a list of some of the questions we get asked most frequently from our patients.

Other Common Questions

Taking Care of Your Teeth and Gums

How often should I visit the dentist?

You should visit your Rye Brook NY dentist at least twice a year. A dental exam can reveal early signs of decay and disease that you may not see or feel. Catching these conditions early can help control them before them get worse and harder to treat. Additionally, getting a cleaning by a trained professional will remove plaque in areas you may have missed or cannot reach.

How often should I brush and floss my teeth?

You should brush at least twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed. You should floss once a day as well.

Back to top

What is the proper way to brush my teeth?

The following guidelines are important to brushing correctly.

  1. Firstly, make sure to use a soft bristled brush. Hard bristled brushes can wear down the enamel of your teeth.
  2. Place your brush at a 45 degree angle to your gumline. Bristles should contact both the tooth surface and the gumline.
  3. Use short back and forth strokes or tiny circular movements to brush your teeth. Each movement should be no bigger than the size of each tooth.
  4. Make sure to use gentle strokes while brushing. Gentle strokes are effective in removing plaque, while too much pressure can wear down the enamel of your teeth.
  5. Brush all surfaces of each tooth, including the outer, inner, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
  6. Finally, don’t cut your brushing short! Make sure to brush for at least 2 minutes.

What is the proper way to floss?

The following guidelines are important to flossing correctly.

  1. Take 18″ of floss and wind it around the middle finger of each hand .You can use these fingers to take up floss as it becomes dirty. Using your thumb and forefinger, pinch the floss leaving 1-2 inches in between for cleaning.
  2. Gently move the floss up and down the spaces of your teeth. Never snap the floss down onto your gums, as it can cause damage.
  3. As you move the floss down into the space between two teeth, slide it up and down against the surface of one tooth. Gently clean at the gumline as well.
  4. Repeat this process for all of your teeth.

What is plaque?

Plaque is a sticky, clear film which forms every day on teeth from food debris and bacteria. If plaque is not removed, it can lead to gum disease and cavities. Regular dental check ups, along with brushing and flossing every day, can help prevent plaque buildup on teeth. In addition, avoiding sugary snacks and eating a balanced diet can help control plaque.

Periodontal (Gum) Disease

What is periodontal (gum) disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the gums and bone that hold your teeth in place. Typically, periodontal disease occurs when plaque builds up on the teeth and hardens, often due to poor brushing habits. The gums can become swollen and red in the early stage of the disease, called gingivitis. As the disease advances, periodontal disease can lead to sore and bleeding gums, pain while chewing, as well as tooth loss.

What are the signs of periodontal disease?

The following are signs of periodontal (gum) disease, and you should contact your Westchester NY cosmetic dentist if you experience any of these:

How can I prevent periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene. This includes brushing, flossing and visiting you dentist regularly. Also, make sure to eat a healthy diet to get the required vitamins and minerals necessary for your teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Why do our teeth turn yellow?

While our teeth start out pearly white, they can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint.

Back to top

What are the different types of teeth whitening options?

Below are the three most popular teeth whitening options available today.

In-office teeth whitening

In-office teeth whitening works by producing a significant color change in your teeth in short amount of time, usually within an hour. The procedure is done at our Westchester NY dentist office by applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after they have been protected with a special shield.

Professionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits

These whitening kits are purchased from Dr. Fu for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually, the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.

Over the counter whitening

Over the counter, teeth whitening kits are store-bought and use a lower concentration gel than both in-office bleaching and take-home kits purchased from your doctor. While they are less expensive, they typically are less effective than methods that can be performed by your dentist because of the low concentration gel. Additionally, over the counter trays are not custom fit for your teeth, which can result in irritation to your gums while wearing the trays.

How long does teeth whitening last?
Teeth whitening usually lasts from one to three years before darkening of the teeth is noticed. Additionally, once your teeth have been initially whitened, typically only “touch ups” are required to maintain the whiteness.

Other Common Questions

What can I do about bad breath?

Bad breath is caused by a variety of factors, including the types of food you ingest, periodontal disease, dry mouth, and other causes. Going to your Port Chester cosmetic dentist will help you determine the cause of your bad breath so that you can take steps to eliminate it.

Regardless of the cause of your bad breath, good oral hygiene and regular checkups will help reduce it. Brushing and flossing will eliminate particles of food stuck between your teeth which emit odors. It will also help prevent or treat periodontal disease (gum disease), caused by plaque buildup on your teeth, which can lead to bad breath. Dentures should be properly cleaned and soaked overnight in antibacterial solution (unless otherwise advised). Finally, make sure to brush your tongue regularly to eliminate any residue.
