In brief: Mouth guard

In order to get a custom made mouth guard usually you need to appointment 1st appointment they take an upper and lower impression in a dental office with a bite registration and the 2nd appointment they will try it on fit check it and it's done.
It usually takes 1 to 2 weeks.

In brief: 1-3 weeks

The mold of your teeth should take no longer than 30 minutes.
Then the mouth guard will need to be made. If the mouth guard needs to be sent to a lab, it probably will be done in 2-3 weeks. However if it's just a protective mouthpiece, some dental offices can have it done within a day.

In brief: Varies

Timing depends upon the type of custom mouth guard- material, local lab or out of town, schedule of the dentist.

In brief: Depends

Depends on whether it is a sports mouth guard or a Night Guard for grinding/clenching, your appointment availability, Dentist's scheduling availability, appliance's material/design/complexity, fabricating laboratory’s turn-around time, etc.
Best answer, ask your Dentist. Remember that Dentistry is a service, not a commodity. Every patient receives unique individualized care.
