grit your teeth

a) to use all your determination to continue in spite of difficulties:
Just grit your teeth and hang on - it'll be over soon.

b) to bite your teeth together, especially when you are in pain, angry, or under pressure:
'No, that's alright,' she said through gritted teeth.

Some other "toothy" expressions:

"Bite your tongue" (don't say something you'll regret)
"Bite off more than you can chew" (take on a job that's too big for you)
"Give your eyeteeth for something" (lose your upper canine teeth for something you really want)
"Fight tooth and nail" (bite and scratch)
