If you want a broad transcription, you could use the voiceless stop [t] for both. However, [t], as well as other other typically alveolar consonants such as [d], [n], [s], and [z], tends to be somewhat dentalized in speakers of French, so if you would like a more narrow transcription of the consonant, [t̪ ] would suffice. The ' ̪ ' under the [t] denotes that the consonant is produced with a dental place of articulation as opposed to the usual alveolar place of articulation.
