Hi, its not too late for u to undergo the treatment. Gap between the teeth can be corrected using braces.There are metal and ceramic braces. Ceramic braces are tooth coloured. If u r not willing to wear braces then u can go for clear aligners which are removable trays. But  the treatment cost is expensive for wearing clear aligners. Treatment period is 1 to 1 and half years. Monthly once u have to go for check up. Its advisable to consult dentist for further management.

Considering your age the treatment is not late at all. Braces treatment can be done in much more elder individuals too. All it needs to evaluate the amount of bone support with an x-ray. So you can go ahead so that you can achieve good results and permanent too. Regards, Dr.Idris- Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon DENT INN

Hello.. it's not too late for braces.. And if u feel u cannot wear braces you have to go for clear Aligners.. the treatment charges for those things are little expensive.. Clear Aligners come like removable trays.. once in 3 weeks I gotta change the trays.. Each trays have already programmed to carry out the desirable tooth movement... Or u can go for lingual braces,, where in braces are placed behind your teeth..
