What is the minimum height of a mini implant crown for a single tooth? Can the crown height for a mini dental implant be minimum and adjusted by the dentist or it is not possible to change the size of a crown for mini implants by a dentist as it is preset?
Is it possible to cement rather low (because I have low occlusion) two single unit crowns fused together onto the inserted mini implants extruding ends?

The minimum size of a crown on a mini implant is determined by the size of the head sticking out of the gums.
The crown needs to be usually two millimeters longer in order to cover the head of the implant with enough material to prevent breakage, so if the implant headabove the gums measures eight millimeters, the crown should be about ten.
That is only if there is not an intermediate piece that gets cemented onto the head called the abutment.  This would make the crown longer.
The shortest crown would be one made to be cemented directly onto the head, and yes, you can have to adjacent crowns fused together cemented on mini implants.
Good luck!
