Alternative methods for closing a gap
There are several options to consider for closing a gap between your teeth. Restorative options may include bonding the teeth or veneers. Orthodontic options may include braces or removable aligners like invisalign®. In some cases a removable retainer could work.
There are some limited lingual (behind the teeth) techniques available for aligning teeth and closing spaces (See attached video reference). I would recommend having a consultation with an orthodontist to see if you are a candidate for this type of procedure.
I hope this information helps.
