The Retainer

If you need a retainer but also grind or clench your teeth, this one's for you. The Retainer keeps your teeth in place and prevents them from shifting over time but also protects them from your grinding or clenching. It's made from a unique, slightly denser material than the Hard night guard and is offered in two variants:

  • Retainer: If you just need a retainer, we recommend the 1mm ultra clear version. This is perfect for after orthodontic work or as an upgrade from the wire and plastic retainers. They're pretty much invisible, easier to clean, and the right thickness for comfort so you'll actually wear them.
  • Retainer Night Guard: If you also grind or clench your teeth, we recommend the 1.5mm version. Though it sounds minor, the increased thickness adds the extra protection and durability needed to absorb your grinding and clenching forces while preserving that perfect smile.


What You'll Get 

  • A complete impression kit with instructions and pre-paid return mailer
  • A professionally made custom night guard that fits your teeth perfectly
  • Light blue custom plastic case for your night guard
  • Fast and free all-inclusive 3 way shipping

Our Guarantees

We're a professional dental lab in Northern California and have a combined dental experience of 10+ years. With us, you'll have:
  • A Perfect Fit Promise - if it doesn't fit perfectly, we'll adjust or remake it for you until it does, free of charge
  • 100 Days / 100 Percent if you don't like the night guard whether for fit or comfort, let us know within 100 days and we'll refund you 100%, no questions asked
  • 6 Months Grind Free Warranty - if you break or grind through your night guard within 6 months of purchase, we'll replace it for you free of charge

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between the Retainer and the Retainer Night Guard?

The Retainer is our standard ultra-clear retainer. It's 1mm thin and perfect if you simply need a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting. 

The Retainer Night Guard is slightly thicker (1.5mm), and made out of a more durable material designed to also withstand grinding or clenching. This is a great option if you're looking for a Retainer but also grind or clench your teeth.

How long does it take to receive my retainer?

You can generally expect your custom made retainer to land on your doorstep about a week or so after we receive your impression. 

We take about 2-3 business days to create your night guard and another 3-4 days for shipping. Shipping is free all 3 ways but if you'd like to speed things up, there are faster shipping options at checkout or you can take advantage of the Fast Track option, where we can turnaround your night guard within 24 hours. Please expect minor delays during peak holiday times.

Chomper Labs The Retainer - for teeth retention and teeth grinding Review
Fantastic Journey

Having two porcelain top front teeth, I’m always weary about anything going on or near my teeth. After having worn a bottom guard for several years, my TMJ was unmanageable. I was told to try an upper guard, so I did! I am so happy I did. My lower jaw does not hurt anywhere near as much as before, and the tightness (scary at first) has not pulled my two front teeth out! I am happy with the quality of Chomper Labs!

Perfect fit

Shipping was fast, price was fair and the process of getting it sized was easy. The fit is nice and the retainer itself is smooth and it doesn't bother me when wearing it at night.

Great and comfortable

I purchased the night guard/retainer. Very comfortable to wear. Easy process and prompt service. I am very happy with my purchase so far.

Great mouth guard, ok retainer

I ordered the mouthguard retainer combo because I wear a retainer at night but also am a major teeth grinder and wanting to simplify things a little. I’m happy with the fit and feel, and as a mouth guard it’s been holding up pretty well! The one down side is I can feel that my teeth have shifted a little since I started wearing it and not my usual retainer. Other than that, the customer service was great and it shipped very fast!

Night Guard + Retainer

Chomper Labs were very helpful in ensuring that the molds were corrects before manufacturing them. They also helped send additional putty when the mold wasn't good enough. When the night guard + retainer arrived, it fit very well the first time without any sharp edges. Overall, the entire process to create the mold and receive the night guard was easy and painless.

Great experience!

Customer service was very helpful when I explained my situation (I have a strong gag reflex and can't tolerate most nightguards). The price was very reasonable and the guard fits well. Best of all, no gagging on my nightguard anymore! I definitely recommend Chomperlabs and will be a repeat customer.

I love it. Totally worth it!

I had a night guard from Germany and unfortunately I left it there on my last visit. So I went to different dentists in the states, but they wanted $400 or more. I was shocked, because I never paid for it with insurance before. My husband mentioned this website and I thought I will just try it. I am really surprised how fast I got the product and the quality is awesome. It’s totally worth it.

Helpful and quick!

I struggle to take impressions a few times, but customer service was very quick to help and make things right! I received my Night guard, and it fits almost perfectly! It’s a bit tight in a few places and my teeth are a bit sore upon waking up. But great customer service!

Chomper Labs The Retainer - for teeth retention and teeth grinding Review
Great fit and customer service!

My new night guard fits perfectly! I got the retainer version and it is holding my teeth in their place (unlike my dentist-made guard which shifted them around every night.) It’s so much better than what I had before from my dentist office. It’s comfortable and also not too noticeable. I wasn’t sure if my impressions came out right so I emailed pictures and got an almost immediate response. There are definitely grind marks on it, so I hope it holds up. But so far it’s been good and so is the customer service!

Retainer night guard for teenage son

This was a great process! I love that you can send pictures of your impression first before sending it. My son didn't have a good first one so they sent a new set, included in the cost, and that one worked well! My son says its good after using it almost 2 weeks and I hope it lasts longer than the retainer he got from the ortho because of his grinding. So glad to have an option that isn't $500! I would definitely recommend Chomper Labs!

Gets the job done - excellent service

I needed a mouth guard for grinding but didn't want to stop using my retainer which is why this option was great for me. Price seemed fair comparing to others but the customer service has been fantastic. Only reason I'm giving 4 stars is that after a month of use I'm already able to feel a little wear on my retainer and I'm not a heavy grinder, which makes me think I'll need to cough up more dough for a replacement sooner than I would like. The retainer itself fits great and protects my teeth.

Not sure it was "finished" properly

The guard fits nice, however, the guard comes up over my teeth and covers my gums in areas. I think it should have been trimmed up before shipping out... I'm concerned it will cause issues with my gum line if I wear it for too long.

Fast, Easy, Fits great... 1/2 the cost

THank you chomperlabs...I wear a bottom guard with a top retainer. my dentist was not sure about my bottom guard and gave me a very high quote and 2 month turn around. Your pricing, shipping, video directions, and final retainer was so easy . It fits great!! Thank you for making it cost affordable and easy shipping. Jessica

Night Guard

Making the mold if my teeth was very easy and after sending it off I received my night guard within a week. Fits great, only bad thing was one side was a little bit sharp. Other than that I am very pleased with my purchase.

Amazing product and customer service!

I'm so happy with my night guard and very impressed by Chomper's customer service. I had doubts about my impression, but they gave me feedback and told me what my options were. I highly recommend them!
