My dd just cut 2 teeth, the middle ones on the bottom, and while she hasn't bitten me (yet), she has left two scrape marks on my nipple. Any tips on how to avoid this in the future and heal them before they really start to hurt?

An infant can't understand "no bite" or being yelled at during breastfeeding. It's not nice and can cause a nursing strike or premature weaning. Usually you can tell when your baby may bite. It is often at the end of the feeding. Either be ready to break the seal with your finger (if baby is falling asleep) or move the baby closer to your breast so the baby will open it's mouth and can't bite. Women have always nursed babies with teeth and it's not the problem most people think it would be.
