Cross-section of a young cuspid tooth
Illustrated from serial injected cross-sections. The arteries are colored red, and the veins are colored blue here. Note how vascular such a small structure is during development. If you look at the outside of the tooth, you can see a yellow periphery with lots of individual cells denoted - those are the odontoblasts. The odontoblasts form the layer between the dentin and the pulp, so we can tell that the enamel layer has been omitted from this illustration.
