I just have a gap between two teeth. How long do I need Braces?

My teeth aren't that bad. I just have a gap between two teeth. Will I have to have braces for the same amount of time as a person with very bad teeth or for a shorter amount of time?

To many variables involved to give definitive answer.

I would strongly recommend you to have an orthodontic consultation. Most orthodontists will give you a consultation at no charge. Without seeing pictures of your teeth or you in person, it is very difficult to give you a definitive answer since there are too many variables involved that can affect the type of treatment and the time involved.
