U can fix ur problem with a composite restoration or veneers.. But this will only b a temporary solution... Since ur saying the gap is increasing it could be due to a tongue thrusting habit or bone loss around ur teeth..visit an orthodontist for options other than conventional braces...

Increasing gaps or spaces between teeth is a cause of concern as it could be due to underlying gum problem (periodontitis). Get yourself examined before embarking on treatment for gap closure.

Good morning, best way for correcting the same is braces or invisalign. Other ways will be composites or laminates or crowns. I will have to examine you before giving you a proper treatment plan.
