BERLIN, Germany: This morning, Dentsply Sirona introduced its new grinding and milling unit, CEREC Primemill, at the Global CEREC KOL event in Berlin to about 200 international dental professionals, key opinion leaders and representatives of the press. The company said that the unit is a true game-changer in chairside dentistry, as it will help facilitate and accelerate the fabrication of chairside restorations. For example, the time required to fabricate a zirconia crown has been reduced by more than half.

“CEREC Primemill is a real game-changer in the whole workflow,” said Dr Gertrud Fabel, a German dental practitioner and key opinion leader for Dentsply Sirona. “Everything works significantly faster than before, the quality of the restorations is convincing owing to the very fine margins and smooth surfaces, and handling is more than simple: the team can provide perfect support and thus accelerate the entire workflow to make it even more pleasant for the patient.”

Using the new milling unit, the dentist will be able to manufacture restorations with precise margins and very smooth surfaces from various materials. According to Dentsply Sirona, users will be surprised by the speed and outstanding results that can be achieved through the high-speed set-up with two spindles and four motors. CEREC Primemill features a 7 in. touch interface, which guides the user through all workflow processes; an integrated camera for scanning material blocks with compatible data matrix codes; and a small radio-frequency identification tag that can be read by an integrated scanner.

Better aesthetics and higher speed

With CEREC Primemill, restorations, especially those made of zirconia, can be milled even faster. As demonstrated to the audience in Berlin, the milling time can be cut from around 10–12 minutes to less than 5 minutes using the new super-fast mode. With the newly developed extra-fine milling mode, the unit achieves a high level of detail for occlusal fissures and interdental areas on bridges, enabling users to achieve predictable, first-class results.

Revolutionising the chairside experience for dentists and patients

Together with CEREC Primescan and the CEREC software, CEREC Primemill will create a whole new chairside experience, the company promised. With the introduction of Primemill, Dentsply Sirona is now able to offer dental professionals who want to start using CAD/CAM technology in their practices a full system with great flexibility for reliable results. According to the company, those who are already using CEREC in their practices will appreciate the new level of speed, the high level of quality and the convenience provided by the unit.

“It was important for us to create real added value with CEREC Primemill, both for the CEREC newcomer and for those who have been passionate CEREC users for years,” explained Dr Alexander Völcker, group vice president of CAD/CAM and orthodontics at Dentsply Sirona. “We have noticeably increased the process speed while delivering outstanding restoration results. The variety of applicable materials leaves nothing to be desired. The complete system does not require any data imports or exports. All processes are coordinated with one another and fully validated for an excellent and seamless chairside experience.”
