Help with bleached green cap

I have a green with purple rim cap and a frag fell down between the rocks. It wasn't large enough for me to break down the tank to get so I left it for about a month. I recently re-aquascaped my tank and was able to get the frag out. The problem is that it is now white and doesn't look too good. Is there anything I can do to bring it back?

Are polyps still visible? Just wondering if extremely bleached or tissue is no more. If just severely bleached, find a place at the bottom or midway from original placement and direct some light flow towards it for stimulation and to keep any debris from accumulating while it heals. Also, if you place the frag at the bottom, make sure it is securely mounted on a piece of rock so the sand doesn't cause any further recession
