I just had a frenectomy and fiberotomy. When will the space close?

In brief: As force is applied

I must assume that you are also having concurrent orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners.
The space will not likely spontaneously close - some type of orthodontic force will be required. Depending upon the size of your diastema or space, it can typically be closed within weeks.

In brief: After braces

Spaces do not usually close by itself.
Time depends on your teeth, jaw, bite and other factors.
