Just like the Primescan , the Primemill marks a new generation of CEREC devices. This makes these devices relevant for dentists who want to get into chairside production. These devices are extremely powerful and designed for ease of use. In my opinion, the CEREC Primemill makes entry into the digital practice interesting for almost all practice owners.

What’s new at the Primemill?
The features of the grinding and milling unit at a glance
- CEREC Primemill: wet-dry grinding and milling unit
- 7-Zoll Touch Interface.
- Super Fast mode for zirconia crowns.
- Block scanner and RFID tool reader for an easier and faster workflow.
- Complete range for various indications up to a block size of 70 mm.
- Smoother surfaces in zirconia restorations.
CEREC Primemill produces restorations with clear margins and a very smooth surface resulting from the high-speed configuration with two axes and four motors. The product has a 7-inch touch interface, an integrated camera to scan blocks with compatible data matrix code, an RFID reader to read the tool information, and a modern and compact design that facilitates the operation.
The developers explain that when creating CEREC Primemill, special attention was paid to ease of use: the large touch interface guides the user through all workflow processes. In addition, restorations, especially zirconia restorations, can be milled faster due to new tools and improved technology.
The time required to fabricate a zirconia crown has been reduced by more than half: from 10-12 minutes to 5 minutes using the new ‘Super Fast’ mode. The complete system does not require any data import or export. All processes are coordinated and fully validated for a 100% integrated experience, which generates greater productivity through process standardization.
Engineered for speed and precision, the new CEREC Primemill inherits the proven strength of its predecessor and raises its robust performance to new heights.
You can now mill zirconia restorations in Super Fast milling mode in around 5 minutes, cutting processing times by more than half. The improved grinding method for high-quality glass ceramics also grinds the material faster than ever before result? Satisfied patients and increased productivity.
Combining new electronics, software, motors, and mechanical components contributes to more acceptable resolution and enhanced dynamics. This results in outstanding restoration margins and surface details – for exact results.
The new highly accurate 0.5 mm milling tool reliably delivers first-class clinical results. Switch to Extra Fine milling mode for more detail with occlusal fissures and interdental areas on bridges.
Welcome to a world where you’re spoiled for choice! The new CEREC Primemill combines wet and dry milling and wet grinding. No matter the indication, with CEREC Primemill, you can select from a broad range of material options from validated partners providing the flexibility and predictability you need to offer patients the best possible treatment.
Choose from the full spectrum of machining options, including dry and wet milled zirconia or wet grinding of glass and hybrid ceramics.
The new 7″ touch interface with user guidance guides operators step-by-step through the workflow, essential maintenance procedures, and other routine tasks so that you can delegate milling with complete peace of mind. The integrated block scanner is a time-saving new feature that automatically scans material blocks with compatible data matrix codes and records the information, including type, size, color, and zirconia enlargement factor.
All CEREC Primemill tools are fitted with a color-coded RFID chip that is read by the RFID tool reader, feeding into the tool status display, alerting the user if a device needs replacing. This ensures all tools are performing at optimal levels. A LED light strip indicates unit status and milling and grinding progress.
CEREC Primemill from the user’s point of view
Would you like to know how the Primemill performs from the user’s point of view? Dr. Gerhard Werling has been a convinced CEREC user and tester since the beginning.
What is interesting in his eyes is that the operation is much more elegant and comfortable again. For example, the Primemill recognizes the tools via an RFID reader and the blocks via a block scanner. This not only makes delegation particularly easy but also particularly secure.
The system is out of the nerdy habit that the CEREC community had many years ago. The devices and software can be operated intuitively without any prior knowledge. For example, the large 7-inch touch interface on the grinding machine for optimized operation and the scanners for detecting the blocks and grinding wheels.
The connection to commercial laboratories is also easier thanks to the opening of the CEREC system. Digitization started a long time ago in laboratories. The laboratories are certainly happy when they receive intraoral scans from practitioners with which they can continue working directly in their laboratory software.

Dentist and CAD/CAM user
In the eyes of Dr. Werling primarily practices with a very efficient, well-designed workflow. In these practices, the milling process can be prepared independently. This means that the machine can be equipped and adjusted in advance – keyword delegation – and the milling machine starts immediately when the practitioner presses the start button.
As an experienced CEREC user, Dr. Werling was particularly impressed by four new features when working with Primemill in his practice:
- Speed: A full zirconia crown can be milled in less than five minutes, and the edges and surfaces are of high quality simultaneously. This supports me eminently in my chairside workflow.
- Control: The Primemill can control drill bits or grinding tools because it records how long and how often they have already worked.
- Surface processing in fine mode: Beautiful chewing surfaces can be created with the device. This improves the function and aesthetics of the restoration even further.
- Flexibility: Another advantage is that the user can mill and sand dry and wet.
