Can I use my gold grill as a mouth piece?

I’ve been boxing for awhile now and I just prefer wearing my grill compared to my mouthpiece. Is it protecting my teeth in any way?

    I'd say no, might be better than nothing, might not. All that metal is going to just transfer the energy of a hit into your teeth, might spread it around a bit, and gold is soft, but not that soft. Use the rubber mouthpiece because it absorbs the energy of the hits and diffuses it. (I am not a dentist.) ...ya know, besides, you don't want to get your grill messed up! (might get dented, might pop out and get stepped on!)
