ted too dark. These create a fake look. You could make the teeth only connect at the bottom and make a very light line in between them. To make them real. Don't make the lines dark at all. The shading

around will do the work of defining the teeth's shape. So don't make the lines dark :).

Now the gums. Makes connected arches all over the teeth. The back teeth's gums touch the lips and gums are hidden under the lips.
