Front two teeth gap? (Photo)

Hello, I'm 20 y/o, male. I have a gap between my front two teeth. It looks awkward. My dentist recommended me "braces". Now, I'm not sure about braces. Cause, there's some skin in there , and it's getting in the way. So, in order for it to work, they have to cut it off. Okay that's scary.. Then there's "composite bonding". He said it would be the most affordable and convenient temporary fix. I did a little research. But, my question is...wouldn't that make my front teeth look a little wider..?
