Dental Implant Crowns & Bridges - Massapequa Park, NY • Long Island
Custom-Made Restorations Designed to Rebuild Your Smile
Dental implants are truly special when it comes to replacing missing teeth because they are the only treatment that brings back the root, creating a strong foundation for a patient’s renewed smile. Once these new roots are in place, they need to be attached to the restorations that will actually show within the mouth. This is where Dr. Mohr’s expertise as a highly-trained cosmetic dentist comes in. Using custom-made crowns and bridges, he can ensure that his patients who get dental implants in Massapequa enjoy a result that looks natural, beautiful, and can be trusted to last for a lifetime to come.
Why Choose Dr. Allan S. Mohr for Dental Implant Crowns & Bridges?
Implant Crowns & Bridges: An Overview
While a traditional crown can help rebuild a broken or decayed tooth, implant crowns are the only kind that can actually bring back a missing tooth. The difference is that an implant crown is designed to fit over a prosthetic root, while a regular crown has to be shaped so it can replace the missing portions of a damaged tooth. Implant crowns are typically made of 100% dental porcelain, giving them an extremely lifelike appearance.
Bridges are used to replace multiple consecutive missing teeth, and in order to place a traditional one, dentists typically have to shave down the healthy teeth surrounding the missing ones in order to fit crowns that will support the prosthetic teeth. However, implant bridges enable Dr. Mohr to give a patient this restoration and preserve their remaining teeth, because the prosthetic teeth are instead held in place using implant crowns. This makes them ideal for patients who do not have enough healthy dental structure to support a normal bridge.
The Advantages of Implant Crowns & Bridges at Smile Creations
- Realistic Appearance: Dr. Mohr is one of the leading authorities on cosmetic dentistry in the country, so when it comes to getting implant crowns and bridges that look, feel, and act just like natural teeth, he’s the man to see. He painstakingly designs these restorations himself and only works with the best dental labs and ceramists in the area to manufacture them.
- Durability: Fortunately, Dr. Mohr’s implant crowns and bridges don’t just look good, but they can be trusted to last as well. Dental porcelain is an extremely strong material that holds up reliably to the chewing forces, meaning patients won’t have to give their restorations a second thought.
- Easy Maintenance: Want your implant crown or bridge to look like new for years to come? If so, you won’t need some elaborate care routine. All you have to do is look after them like natural teeth. This means regular brushing, flossing, and professional checkups/cleanings are all that’s necessary to help them really last.

Dental Implant Crowns and Bridges FAQs
Dental implant crowns are excellent for replacing single teeth, and bridges (otherwise known as implant-supported dental bridges) are one of the best ways to replace multiple lost teeth. Before you schedule your implant consultation with Dr. Mohr, however, you may be curious to learn more about these treatments and how they work. That is why we have assembled the following brief list of frequently asked questions. If you don’t see the information you were hoping for, we invite you to reach out to us directly.
How Many Teeth Can an Implant-Supported Bridge Replace?
An Implant-supported bridge replaces a minimum of two teeth. It uses one crown and one pontic (artificial tooth) to do so. If two dental implants are used, one on each end of the gap, an implant-supported bridge may be able to replace up to five consecutive missing teeth.
Do I Have to Clean Beneath an Implant-Supported Bridge?
It is important to keep the space beneath your pontics clean. A floss threader or a water flosser can help you to do so. When you visit us for regular checkups, we might remove your implant-supported bridge so we can thoroughly clean the area around your implants.
Is the Dental Implant Bridge Process Painful?
Comfortable treatment is a cornerstone of high-quality dentistry. Dr. Mohr partners with local specialists who are careful to ensure that patients feel little to nothing during their implant placement surgery. A bit of swelling and soreness is normal after the procedure, but it is usually mild and does not last very long.
What if My Multiple Missing Teeth Are Not Consecutive?
Implant-supported bridges are intended to replace consecutive missing teeth. If you have missing teeth at various places throughout a dental arch, Dr. Mohr will recommend a treatment based on your unique circumstances. You might benefit from a few single tooth implants (implant-supported crowns) or from an implant-supported partial denture.
Who Is a Candidate for Implant-Supported Crowns and Bridges?
Most patients who have suffered a degree of tooth loss are candidates for either implant-supported crowns or an implant-supported bridge. Dr. Mohr will carefully examine your oral structures and ask you some questions about your overall health before he determines whether dental implants are right for you. If you are not a candidate at this time, Dr. Mohr may be able to design a treatment plan that makes you a candidate in the future.
