The eyes should be easy...a SPHERE!
As for the teeth, create regular cubes for teeth on the mouth, then extrude and scale it down at the top extrude again and scale down again until you get the desired result.

No.
Cubes are better for teeth than spheres.
Subdivide the cubes if you need to, but teeth are small and plenty and need little detail.
If you use spheres for every tooth you will have stupidly complex teeth with tons and tons of unnecessary polygons.
Use cubes and merge the 4 vertices on any side to make a pyramid. Subdivide will make it look a little better, and you can still make them sharp.

EDIT: Sorry I misread Eric's post. I thought it said spheres for teeth, he said squares. Surely he meant cubes.
But still heed my advice for the hell of it.

Yea i meant cubes, though he should subdivide until the whole model is complete. Unless he wants the teeth separate for whatever reason.
