Make sure Preferences (Ctrl+J) has the Place Duplicates set to Horizontal Offset 0.0, Vertical Offset 0.0 then duplicate (Ctrl+D) the colored shape and use the node edit tool (F10) to move the left nodes to the right side of the next tooth face.

Reverse the procedure to complete the other side of the gear.
