Cerec Online makes the MC XL and MC L CNC milling machines for dentists. These allow a dentist to mill a crown himself, in his office, while the patient waits.

  • Superior results: Precision in the range of +/- 25 microns

  • Production: Six minutes milling time for a full--contour crown; three to four minutes for partial coverage

  • Better fit and smoother restoration surface: 7.5u milling resolution

  • Intuitive: Automatic software downloads and user-friendly display guides

  • Compatibility: LAN, WLAN and network compatible

  • Longer life: Milling chamber design and easy block clamping (no tools required)

  • Platform for future in-office CAD/CAM development

It appears from the "Return on Investment Calculator" on this page at Patterson Dental, these machines cost $2,000 or $2,700 per month, depending on which configuration you pick.
