Hey man, you have quite limited space due to the size of the image. Therefore, you don't really want to add dark lines around the teeth.

Instead, you want to give the impression of teeth.

Hopefully this helps

Quake is going the right way here. Given the small canvas size it's much better to just indicate small things like teeth and fingers with clusters of highlights and some shadows here and there. Here is a piece I did last year. It's basically just clusters and 2 to 1 dots with no outline around his set of teeth.
