What is so interesting about the teeth of a herbivore?

My dad makes such a big deal about the teeth of a herbivore, I do not see the fascination.

The teeth of an herbivore are not made to rip and tear so they are flat and blunt. This is for smashing and grinding the vegetation that these animals consume.

Teeth of an herbivore are set up so that they can best eat plants so their front teeth are often clippers so they can cut easily through plant matter close to the root.
