1. go to a pet shop and buy some white bone - they sell it for dogs to chew. Wash well and personally I would soak in some bleach for a day or 2 and then wash again to make sure it is clean

2. using a saw and files cut your teeth from the bone. It will polish well just like real teeth.

3. I would use something like shape lock to form a gum and set the teeth in it.

White bone - you can't mistake them

you can get then plain or filled with a gooy chew for teh dog - If this is all you can get the gooy bit will wash and poke out.

Visit a pet shop.

I make jewellery out of them.

Polymorph / Shapelock etc.

It's basically tooth-coloured, easy to mould, and if you mess it up you can just warm it up and start again.
