Closing a gap without braces
Closing Small Gaps with Cosmetic Dental Bonding
In dentistry, conservative treatment is always the best treatment for the small things. Cosmetic dental bonding is what I would suggest. Quick. Easy. Painless. Conservative. Look for an experienced cosmetic dentist, preferable one Accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. If there is no one near you with that designation, then look o- line, or ask to see the cosmetic work of the doctors you interview, or your own. While it is a simple procedure yes, it is one that requires artistic and technical skill to make that bonding totally blend into your teeth, to make the mid-line straight and to have the right color/shade so that it helps your smile pop. Good luck!
Closing small gaps
Orthodontics (Invisalign) would be my first choice of treatment, however this would also require that you wear a retainer at night to keep the space closed after orthodontics is completed. A small space such as yours could be corrected by placing a direct composite (tooth-colored) filling. This would need to be maintained over the years but would provide a very quick solution to your problem.

I agree with the other doctors.
Composite bonding should be your best bet for such a small gap. That will be most conservative and fast treatment option as well. You could also use invisalign but that may be overkill

Options for closing gap between front two teeth
Thanks for the photo. The gap you have is very small, but I can imagine how bothersome this could be. I see that you do not want braces, but Orthodontic treatment is your best bet. Are you open to Invisalign (clear removable aligners)? Invisalign can fix this fairly quick. With good retention program-post treatment, you can have and reatin this closed without any trouble.
Non-orthodontic options can be bondings or veneers, you want to consult good cosmetic dentist in your area if you are leaning towards those options.
