Caption: Dentine tooth tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of dentine (substantia eburnea), which is a mineralised connective tissue found under a tooth's enamel. It forms the bulk of a tooth and differs from bone in its microscopic structure, which is seen here. Shown in longitudinal section are the dentinal tubules (dental canaliculi), which are where extensions from the odontoblast cells (part of the pulp at the core of a tooth) have formed the surrounding dentine matrix. These odontoblast extensions (or processes) allow dentine to rebuild itself, unlike enamel. Magnification: x3700 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
