Nice tooth, looks more like Galeocerdo aduncus than G. cuvier.

Thanks @Al Dente!

Doesn't the existence of secondary serrations correspond to the G. cuvier?

Size is a big difference. G. cuvier are much larger and thicker. Here are some from the Lee Creek mine. The  aduncus are on the right and the width are from 1.5 to around 1.9 cm. The G. cuvier are on the left and the width is around 2.5 to 3 cm.  The outline of the teeth are a little different too.
