Sometimes closing gaps between teeth can be very difficult.  If the teeth are too small for the size of the jaw, it can be difficult to retain the teeth in the 'closed' position.  Porcelain veneers are a beautiful way to close gaps and create teeth that have correct proportions for optimum esthetics. Speak to your dentist or orthodontist about the options.

Hi!  Braces can work to close the space between the front four teeth. Braces will not change the size of your teeth.  If your teeth are disproportionately small, then you may want to consider getting them built-up with composite restorations to restore them to their proper size, after orthodontic treatment.
