Default Advice on epoxy, plastic, resins...

I came to the most knowledgeable place on the planet for help The forum has helped in the past, but I need some more help from some wise people! I have a saxophone mouthpiece that needs some work done. I'm not sure how many people on the forum are knowledgeable on the subject, but it never hurts to try. I was given an expensive vintage mouthpiece. On the the mouthpiece, a piece of plastic is placed where the teeth rest- it is called a bite guard/plate. The mouthpiece that I recieved didnt have one...I need to replace this plate. I attached another pic with what the plate is supposed to look like. I have been told that you can use epoxy/resins to fill in the plate area to make a new plate. I have no clue about eopxies/resins/plastics.. This will be in my mouth, so I do not want anything that is going to poison/kill/ cause me to grow a second tongue I was told that dentists can make a plate usintg denture material as well. If anyone can give me some direction on plastics, epoxies, resins, or a dentist that might help, I need some help! Sorry for the long post, but I know someone on here has to know something

I would think after the epoxy has cured it would be OK boat repair epoxys are 100% solids no solvents for what it looks like you want to do the epoxy repair puddy at west marine will do the trick
