Usually : Braces are the most common way to move teeth and remove spaces. Because a number of variables are involved and spaces vary, your orthodontist will help you in evaluating your teeth and tell you what is possible. Treatment times will vary based on the severity and position of spacing, so be sure to tell your specialist your goals for your teeth so they can help you best.
