I shot this boar last December and buried its head in my yard. I dug it up a couple of weeks ago and cleaned it. I hot glued the teeth in today and glued it to a piece of MDF.

Its cutters look longer because I didn't push them all them way in when I glued them. nuts

The processing turned out well, but you completely misaligned the mandible and skull. Lucky you used a glue gun because you can release the glue and reset. You can see in the top picture where the cheek teeth (premolars and molars) do not line up between the mandible and skull. The lower canines (cutters) go in front of the upper canines (whetters), not behind. Looks like you have the lower canines pulled way too far out of the mandible.

Here is an example showing how the parts should articulate.

Almost looks like the bottom cutters are upside down and on the wrong sides

Soak in peroxide. Should get rid of the stains.
