Caption: Tooth enamel formation. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through a tooth, showing the enamel-forming cell layer (blue). This epithelium comprises a single layer of column-like cells called ameloblasts. Enamel (yellow, top) is a hard ceramic layer that covers and protects the teeth. The end of the ameloblasts can be seen originating in the internal tooth tissue (orange, bottom). Magnification x2700 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
