Because teeth is plural, 2 (do) is correct. Also, one might substitute "hurt" for "pain", although, if referring to the discomfort, it would be better to describe it as whether your teeth are painful (not hurtful).

Teeth are plural, so you would say "Do your teeth ... ?"
But although 'pain' can be a verb, it always takes an object.It pained me to see his distress. My anxiety pained her.
But we use it far less often than 'hurt'. Do your teeth hurt? Are your teeth hurting?
There's an excellent list of possibilities in the answer from @Lili.

You want the verb- "hurt". "Pain" is a noun. "Do you feel pain in your teeth.

Neither is correct because pain is a noun.
"Do your teeth hurt?" Is likely the most common way to ask what you are trying to ask.
If you insist upon using the word pain, you could say, "Are you feeling any pain in your teeth?". It is imperative that you have a verb in there.

Neither sentence is correct.
There are several ways you could ask this:
Are you feeling pain in your teeth?
Are your teeth painful?
Do your teeth hurt?
Are your teeth hurting?
Have you having any pain in your teeth?
Is any of your teeth painful? (Singular verb because "any" implies "any one")
Are you experiencing any tooth pain?
Are you experiencing any dental pain?
Are you having any dental pain?
