CAD CAM milling machines like CEREC and Carestream CS3500 are amazing. However they are complex and expensive. Additive printing as opposed to reduction milling has amazing potential and is likely to replace milling in the future. Digital printing is all the rage from home fabricators to giant airplane parts manufactuters. If it fulfills the expected potential future dental printers will be cheaper and better than current milling options.
