Veneers or Bonding: If your occlusion or bite is within normal limits and the distance of the gap won't compromise the aesthetic appearance of the cosmetic work, you can be a candidate for bonding or veneers.

Yes but: A lot depends upon the occlusion (the bite or how your teeth fit together and why you have the small spaces. You may also be a candidate for bonding of acrylic to close the spaces. I would consider more than one opinion.

Ask Orthodontist: Ask your orthodontist why you have the gap and can he\she correct it? Why is there a gap? Were there orthodontic limitations? Did you follow all directions? Did you wear your retainer(s) conscientiously? It's probably not too late to have it corrected. Find out your options.
