AbstractPurpose: To assess the trueness of ceramic crowns fabricated using additive technology compared to crowns fabricated using subtractive technology. Material and methods: single crown was designed using Dental Designer Software. 3D design was used to fabricate milled and printed crowns. All crowns were scanned. Geomagic software was used for analysis. Best Fit and Marginal Fit Alignment used to analyze the 3D accuracy of the crowns. One Way ANOVA used to analyze the data, and p<0.05 was considered significant. Result: Significant differences found between the additively and subtractive manufactured crowns [p=0.003,F=11.172]. Additively manufactured crowns exhibited better trueness than subtractive crowns. For the additively manufactured crowns, the Best fit Alignment showed 42.81±40.8μm deviation, and the Marginal Alignment showed a 43.11 ±38.05μm deviation. For Subtractive manufactured crowns, the deviation in Best Fit Alignment was 62.67 ±50.79μm and in Marginal Alignment was 55.35±48.69μm. Conclusion: Additive technology fulfills surface trueness criteria.
