It works to different parts of the muscles.
Upper and lower.
It's not a lot actually.
Hammer Curls works the lower part of the biceps. (I think, if not then it's the upper. lol)

Under train the other one. So, if you do dumbell curls with, say, 40lbs for 12, do 8 with the stronger arm and run the other 4 out with the other arm.
Same with Tri's.
This is where the virtues of independent training comes in handy. Bench press with a bar vs with dumbells, your weaker side gets compensation from the stronger side, and thus, strengthens the stronger side. The weaker side never has a chance to catch up.
over training the weaker or smaller side ends up having you overtrain, which is bad.
Drop reps down on strong side, do normal reps on side needing improvement.
