In brief: No

The frenectomy and fiberotomy are often performed to help in the closure of a diastema (space between the teeth), and are usually done in conjunction with some type of orthodontic movement of the teeth to close the space.

In brief: Probably not

Frenectomy and fiberotomy removes abstruction but you still have to make effort in closing spaces.
