I am meant to be getting my braces off tomorrow, but I have a noticeable gap between my two front teeth. Will a retainer fix this?

In brief: Probably not

Retainers are designed to stabilize teeth, not move them. Hopefully you are seeing an Orthodontic Specialist.
Discuss your concern with him/her before braces are removed.
