    Several years ago, my dentist made a dental guard or mouth guard for my
    lower teeth to help prevent grinding at night. Sometimes I need it
    during the day. For a while I was able to use it during the day because
    it wasn't very noticeable. Unfortunately, the color of the mouth guard
    has gone from a clear/pale pink color to a yellowish-amber tint. This
    happened in spite of cleaning the guard with baking soda, various
    denture cleaner fizzies, tooth whitening agents, etc. The guard cost me
    $600.00, none of which was covered by my insurance. I would like to be
    able to wear it during the day on an "as needed" basis, but it is too
    noticeable and extremely unattractive now. Do you have any ideas on how
    to restore the guard to its original beauty?

    You might also consider a "daytime" NTI device. See (patient site) or (manufacturer
