CEREC Primemill

The features

CEREC Primemill offers you a modern setup for achieving predictable results with an outstanding chairside experience – for you and your patients.


Excellent zirconia crowns in around 5 minutes

CEREC Primemill, closed production chamber

Pre-touch and responsive design

CEREC Primemill checks the inserted block and tools before a process. With the optional Pre-touch feature, this step can be completed at any time during the CEREC workflow saving approximately 1-2 minutes for every restoration.

With the Pre-touch, you also benefit from a faster data transfer of the first milling or grinding paths from CEREC AC to CEREC Primemill which also speeds up the process.

If desired, the traditional workflow is always available.

CEREC Primemill, super fast Zirconia milling

Super-fast milling of zirconia

With CEREC Primemill’s new unique parallel milling process, it can produce beautiful and precise zirconia crowns in five minutes.

Using CEREC Primescan, CEREC Software and CEREC SpeedFire, it is now possible to complete the entire zirconia workflow in one hour.

The Super Fast mode can be used for full contour zirconia crowns dry milled from compatible mono and medi block sizes having a single sprue and a margin thickness of 100µm or more.

CEREC Primemill in slow motion

Fast grinding

Incredibly short grinding times of glass and feldspar ceramics as well as hybrid/composite blocks can also be achieved with the Fast Grinding mode.

To ensure high quality results, the margin thickness parameter must be set at 100µm or more for this option.


Smooth surfaces, very precise results and perfect fits  

Comparison surface structure and margin fit CEREC MC XL and CEREC Primemill

New electronics and mechanical components

CEREC Primemill utilizes new state-of-the-art electronics and stepper motors with finer resolution for smoother kinematics.

This results in outstanding restoration margins and smoother surface details as well as for extremely precise results.

CEREC Primemill; extra fine bur 0.5mm

New 0.5 mm Tool

This milling tool with a very fine cutting geometry reliably delivers first-class clinical results.

You can use this tool for a new Extra Fine milling mode to achieve a higher level of detail for occlusal fissures and interdental areas such as embrasures on bridges.

Extra fine grinding mode

This grinding mode utilizes two new diamond grinding tools to achieve finer details for wet grinded materials such as glass and feldspar ceramics as well as hybrid/composite materials.

The Extra Fine grinding mode and tools are coming soon in 2021, the exact date will be communicated.


Clear guidance for every workflow step 

CEREC Primemill, touch interface in use

7” touch interface

The 7" touch interface is highly intuitive and user-friendly, making operation easy.

It guides users through every workflow  and also leads them step-by-step through key maintenance procedures and other routine tasks.

Automatic reminders for regular maintenance protocols are also communicated in the touch interface.

CEREC Primemill, block scanner

Integrated Block Scanner

This time-saving feature automatically scans material blocks with compatible data matrix codes and records the information, including:
manufacturer, type, size, color and zirconia enlargement factor.

CEREC Zirconia and CEREC Tessera blocks will receive data matrix codes and all material partners have been informed about the specifications.

CEREC Primemill, RFID reader for burs

RFID tool reader and tool management

All tools are fitted with a color-coded RFID chip that is read by the unit’s integrated RFID scanner.

This information is fed into the touch interface and shows the tools’ status and alerts the user if a tool needs replacing.

This ensures all tools are performing at optimal levels, ultimately boosting productivity. 

CEREC Primemill led stripe

LED light stripe

The innovative LED stripe indicates the unit’s status and progress during the milling and grinding processes.

Wide range of indications

This wide range of indications enables you to have an optimal choice for every situation and as well increases unit usage and return on investment.

Indications CEREC Primemill

Validated Materials

Dentsply Sirona works with eight renown material partners to extensively validate a large portfolio of blocks for our milling and grinding units to ensure clinically safe and reliable results.





Validated Materials CEREC Primemill, CEREC SW 5.1.3 Material Pack

Titanium ready

CEREC Primemill units shipped today will be able to mill titanium prefaces in the future without any hardware retrofit necessary.

For this process, we will introduce two new milling tools. At this time we cannot provide a specific date when this feature will be available.

CEREC and inLab CAM SW

CEREC Primemill is compatible with CEREC SW 5.1.1 and future versions.

It will also be compatible with an inLab CAM SW version currently planned for spring 2021.

Tools and accessories


CEREC Primemill Station by Kappler

CEREC Primemill station by Kappler

The CEREC Primemill Station was designed to perfectly fit CEREC Primemill while also allowing you to store any other CEREC models. Easy installation, storage for water tanks, a suction device as well as  integrated holder for the suction device´s cleaning hose.  

The glass cover does not only allow to watch the milling process, it also reduces noise by up to 50%. The integrated fan assures constant cooling to avoid over heating inside the cabinet.  

CEREC Primemill is available for order as a configurable device.

CEREC Network

Operation Recommendations


Previously, radio modules were the recommended connection for sending processing jobs from the CEREC AC to MC XL-family units. As the CEREC Primemill’s firmware updates are typically much larger than those for the MC XL units, completing these updates with a radio module takes considerably longer than with a WiFi solution. CEREC Primemill also offers additional features such as remote login which require a connection to the practice (or lab) network.

For those reasons, we recommend not to use radio modules with CEREC Primemill.

Please find all details in the document CEREC Network Operation Recommendations. This document covers all CEREC network-based components.
