Well this is far fetched, but let's try:
It is

scissors

Two long sharp teeth

Scissor has two blades

Two holes beneath

you can make two holes with their blades, or as @Shahriar Mahmud Sajid mentioned in comments, it can refer to the two holes used to hold the scissors.

My bite is neat

When they cut something, they cut neat

I do not eat

they don't eat :)

    Close! Very close. But not quite. My teeth are my own and they are longer and sharper. – Brent Hackers Aug 17 at 8:44

Let's give this a try:

a paper punch

Leaves two neat holes in paper with long metal rods and doesn't require to eat.

  • Also very close. But my teeth are longer and sharper still :) – Brent Hackers Aug 17 at 8:43
