Yes, the short answer is that it can fill in gaps like yours in your front teeth. The long answer is that it must be done by a dentist who is highly skilled in composite bonding techniques because that it what makes all the difference between a beautiful outcome and a so-so one. Make sure you have a good sense about the skills of the dentist before you do this (actually, you should be in continuing care anyway, so you should have a feel for your dentist's capabilities - don't just pick one out of the blue).
Yes. However, this may not be the most esthetic option.

Depending on how big the spaces are, bonding may be a solution. Bonding does NOT last as long as porcelain. It is much less expensive in the short term.
Certainly. It's a very common and easy procedure.
