Yes, orthodontics with braces or clear aligners (Invisalign) is effective in closing many types of gapped teeth. However, the ability to completely close all spaces depends on the severity and nature of the spaces the person has.
Gaps caused by tooth loss can be closed through various dental procedures. Two common options are dental implants with crowns and dental bridges. Orthodontics can also help, although not always, since the space left after losing a tooth is usually considerably large.

One option is with invisible orthodontics (Invisalign), the other option is resin or porcelain veneers or also with resin edges. In this procedure, a tooth-colored composite resin material is applied and molded over the teeth to close gaps.
