Hello! I found this on the beach while looking for sharks teeth. Any ideas on what it is?

Looks a bit like a mammal tooth, but the first thing the people who can tell you will ask for is photos of both ends and the other side.

Assuming from your location it was found on a beach in North Carolina?

Well,

Whale may be the leading candidate but I am not seeing the "banding" typical of whale teeth.... Here are a couple of whale teeth around the same size,  My 1st take was bear, but will see what Bobby says.  I have always been kinda contrary.. :headscratch:I will say that whale is more likely than bear, but maybe less likely than the field

Cementum vs dentin could be the cause of the discrepancy ?

That is because this one is so river/beach eroded

You are likely correct on the wear pattern.  It is why Bobby is so key.  I was thinking that something like this could be a posibility:
