Helicoprion circular shark teeth!

I found broken in half on a construction site. Bigger piece is about ~4-1/2" and the smaller piece ~3-1/2". My expert identification is teeth, expertise pending on correct identification. Identification this IS from a shark that lived off the coast of GONDWANA! or not...

Not knowing what part of the country and age of the rock you recovered it from. Rock looks like limestone and the fossil looks more like a shell fragment of a Cretaceous Ammonite to me.
Curious to hear what you find out.

Thanks to Explorer I realize I am not a Helicorpion Shark expert and...I found a piece of Ammonite! I googled "Cretaceous Ammonite" + Texas. The images show some identical matches, thinking this Ammonite is around 90 millions years old - THANKS for the identification Explorer!
