Hi, the gap closure can be sorted with composite bonding technique. Or if you have time then please go for orthodontics. The third option is veneers. I would go again a crowns as they are extremely damaging to healthy teeth.

Its called ad diastema.Some people get braces, which move the teeth together. If your lateral incisors are too small, your dentist may suggest widening them using crowns, veneers or bonding. If a large labial frenum is causing the gap, the frenum can be reduced through surgery called a frenectomy. If a frenectomy is done in a younger child, the space may close on its own. If it is done in an older child or an adult, the space may need to be closed with braces. If the gap is caused by periodontal disease, then periodontal treatment by a dentist is necessary. When gum health is restored, in many cases braces can be used to move the teeth into place. A splint can be used to attach teeth to other teeth and prevent them from moving again. In some cases, a bridge will be required to close the spaces.

It depends on the position of your teeth. A facial analysis would be most prudent here. Usually with the right treatment one of which would be braces, the gap can be closed as early as 5-6 months, or even earlier with ceramic crowns and/or veneers. it depends on your case which treatment may be best for you.

Ma'am closure of gap wont take much time only a couple of months (but you will think that is also too much for you at this age . If you are conscious about the metallic look then you can also choose ceramic braces). But the retention period is very important.
